The law, which is said to significantly speed up the construction of highways
At the Ministry, they are currently working on new legislation on superior infrastructure, the aim of which is to significantly speed up the preparatory procedures for all large constructions of national importance.
It will take the form of a law and will include highways, railways, bypasses and other large infrastructure projects, such as the Volvo factory in the east. Another example where the new legislation is to be applied is the completion of the D3 highway. Transport Minister Ráž announced that the highway in the section Žilina Brodno – Čadca (it will be built as one structure) is financially covered and the construction is at a high stage of development.
However, we will have to wait for the start of construction, according to earlier published information, this is what should happen tentatively in June 2026. The construction project will absorb all SR European funds allocated for highways.
At the end of December, the Department of Transport managed to discuss the upcoming legislation with experts. “At the ministry, we welcomed representatives of local governments, the construction sector, and colleagues from other ministries. We showed them the form of the new law on strategic investments, which will significantly speed up the preparation of highways, railways, energy infrastructure and hospitals. We are currently finalizing the law and it will go to parliament at the beginning of next year,” the Ministry of Transport said.
