Severe traffic disruptions expected on the 30. July in Slovenia
On Saturday, July 30th, Russian head of state Vladimir Putin begins his state visit to Slovenia. Severe traffic disruptions are expected due to a ceremony at the Russian Chapel.
The Croatian Automobile Club recommends to avoid travelling through the Karavanke Tunnel on the A2 motorway between Slovenia and Austria because the tunnel, as well as sections of the A2 motorway will be closed in both directions on several occasions during the day. Travelling will be possible on alternate parallel routes.
At the same time it a weekend during the peak of the tourist season. School holidays in Italy and Germany begin end of July, i.e. beginning of August (federal states of Bavaria and Baden-Württemberg), and many Croatians are travelling to their summer destinations.
The Slovenian Traffic Information Centre advises that drivers who are travelling from the western and northern parts of Europe towards Croatia choose routes via Italy (Villach-Tarvisio-Udine-Trieste) or Austria (Graz-Spielfeld), then proceed through Slovenia (Maribor-Lendava or Maribor-Ptuj) to their destination in Croatia. The recommended route in Croatia are the A2 Zagreb-Macelj or A4 Zagreb-Goričan motorways.
Difficulties are expected on roads in Croatia as well, especially on the A1 Zagreb-Split-Ploče, the A6 Rijeka-Zagreb, on the Zagreb bypass (A3), at the Lučko, Sveta Helena and Zaprešić toll stations, at most of the border crossings and in ferry ports. However, due to road closures in Slovenia, it is difficult to advise drivers when to start their journey or what they could expect on their trip.
Keep yourselves informed! You can find traffic information at the Croatian Automobile Club web site (http://www.hak.hr/en
) or dial +385 1 464 0800.
We advise everyone travelling from Croatia towards the north to travel the A4 Zagreb-Goričan motorway towards the Goričan border crossing, then proceed via Hungary towards Lendava, Slovenia and then Austria. An alternate route is the A2 Zagreb-Macelj motorway, via the Macelj border crossing towards Maribor, however, roadworks are in progress on the section between the Macelj border crossing and the town of Ptuj, Slovenia. The recommended route if travelling to Italy is the A6 Rijeka-Zagreb motorway towards either Rupa or Pasjak border crossings. MAP
If you are travelling to the North of Europe, we advise you to avoid the route via Zagreb towards the Bregana border crossing, as well as the roads around Ljubljana, Slovenia.
Due to road closures and heavy traffic, severe traffic disruptions are expected on the roads towards the Brnik airport in Slovenia. We recommend starting your journey towards the airport quite earlier than usual.
Drivers can find information about road closures at the Traffic Information Centre (www.promet.si
), as well as at the Croatian Automobile Club web site (www.hak.hr
