The Prešov bypass project will not change

Transport Minister Árpád Érsek (Most-Híd) disagrees that the price set for construction of the Prešov bypass can be lowered by about €400 million. He responded to the objections of the Value for Money team that claimed it is possible to decrease the price from the planned €900 million to €500 million, the Sme daily reported.

The analysts proposed to build the eastern variant of the bypass and the four-lane road in the city centre, instead of the originally planned south-western variant.

“There is no time for argument,” Érsék said, as quoted by Sme, adding that he has ordered the re-assessment of the project recently, which suggests there is a certain space for savings. The amount however is not as high as the analysts say: only about 6 percent of the original cost.

Érsék was responding to the letter Finance Minister, Peter Kažimír (Smer) had sent to President Andrej Kiska. He said that the bypass project does not have to cost the €900 million planned by the ministry.
