Slovakia sees no need for high-speed rail
Hungary has prepared the first feasibility study for a new rail track connecting Budapest, Bratislava, Prague and Warsaw allowing speeds of 250-320 km/h. In Slovakia, new tracks should be built between Bratislava and Kúty. It remains to be seen whether Slovakia joins the plan as the current government sees other priorities in building and renovating rail infrastructure. It may offer the existing track that is being upgraded to speeds of 200 km/h. This may mean that the high-speed train will bypass Slovakia via Vienna.
