Hardly, it is a good quality limestone. Karst areas are not prone to landslides much.

A9 is being built into full profile in 2 phases: the first part from Kanfanar junction to Pula will be finished this summer (june or july 2010), and the second part from SLO border (Kaštel) to Kanfanar will be finished in june 2011.
It will be full motorway profile, 2+2 with hard shoulders. The new roadway is being built with hard shoulder, but the old one is going to be upgraded with hard shoulder probably after the summer. You can take a look at my photo-report from yesterday (3 parts)

Also, the A8 part from Kanfanar to Pazin is going to be finished in full profile the next summer (2011)

So finally something is going on in Istria (in comparison with all other parts of Croatia).

Anyway they say that viaduct Limska Draga and bridge Mirna will not be upgraded to full profile.







Thanks for the info and for photo report.

nice views of A1 from police chase on this link
http://www.24sata.hr/news/manijak-s-...na-sat/162056/

he blew his tire at tunnel Mala Kapela on one of those things which divide traffic (there were works in the tunnel so traffic was organized in one tube in 2 directions)

Yes, A8 & A9 and the Rijeka bypass are the only bigger projects which haven't been stopped.

About Limska Draga and Mirna - these are 2 objects construction of which is very complicated and so very expensive (the viaduct L.Draga is very tall, and the Mirna bridge is based on sludgy ground) so they will be built after whole A9 is completed in full profile (somewhere in 2012-2013). It's not a bad thing, because there will not be a pay-toll station any more, and the traffic will flow without slowing down

And what about Ucka tunnel? Are there any plans to double it?

for now not, although there are plans to double it in next 10 years. imo it could be realistic to have double tube on Učka tunnel around 2017. it is also very possible to start making second tube as part of new A8 project which will have completely new route between Rijeka and tunnel Učka (north from existing one). and that new A8's route could be built as extension of new Rijeka wide bypass between Permani and Grobnik

plans for the second tube are not in near future, but, as x-type said, it will be built in next 10-year period. The problem with the whole B8 (in future A8) is that it's a road built between 1980 and 1991 as a highway, and because of that doesn't have all characteristics of a motorway, so there is much work to be done on the old roadway to upgrade it into full profile, such as smoothing the curves, leveling the slopes, widen the road, upgrade the hard shoulder, and after all that - build the second roadway (including the new tube of Učka)!!!

Also, the whole new route of A8 from Učka tunnel to Rijeka bypass will be done, but not as an direct extension of the new Rijeka bypass (Permani-Grobnik). A8 will be connected to Rijeka bypass on the new junction Jušići (on today's bypass A7), which will be located a little bit southern from Permani junction.

In any case, the concessionaire has the obligation to build the full profile of the road before 2027
Joke
That's the year of expiration of a concession treaty. But the concessionaire must build the second roadway when traffic achieves 10,000 vehicles per day (or 16,000 per day during summer). In 2004, there were 7329 vehicles (10,899 during summer), today it's about 9000 (I don't have exact data), but, as I said, upgrading into full profile have started last year, and the first part of A8 from Kanfanar to Pazin will be finished in summer 2011

Photo update from A9, section Kanfanar-Pula PART I


Vodnjan-north exit (entrance)
The whole section from Kanfanar to Pula is asphalted. The traffic is carried on the new roadway

Will they add a right hard shoulder to the existing part of the future motorway?
