What's the reason for the delays in the other highways?
It was just too ambitious to get everything funded and constructed in the timescales available.
Generally speaking, stuff is still moving forward - just not as fast as originally hoped. The only real mistake is with the A1 connection to the Czech Republic - there's a huge argument over the construction of a bridge there, and now it looks like it won't be opened till 2014.
But on the whole, it's not bad. On SSC, they're estimating another 150km or so of roads to open this year if the winter arrives a bit later than normal.
