good quality video, the sound is suitable as well, but it should be accelerated.

Lack of funding, things are going slowly. According to state motorways company, the bridge near Osijek across Drava river towards Hungary is planned to start construction this year (it started?). Their plan states that 25 km to Beli Manastir is “in preparation” (removing land mines, expropriation, etc). See the plan:

Not really. They even haven't decided the type of the bridge. First plan was some supadupa coop and expensive bridge, but I think that theY will leave that idea. My expectation is cca 2016

Ca 200 km of southern Hungarian motorway M6 are ready. To the Croatian border remain no more than 30 km.

(A1) 10km long section Ravča to Vrgorac has been opened today.

Ploče should be reached by the end of 2012.

Awesome news!
So just to make sure - to get back on D62 (towards D425 and Ploče) you'll need to go back through Vrgorac center, right?

Oh, and how exactly will A1 reach Ploče next year? The section U/C is between Vrgorac and the new D425, right? Will D425 be renamed to A1 once it's ready?

juest the same as HR side, cca 30 km left. frankly, i expect it to be finnished in the same time from both sides. HR might be even in Schengen zone by then so it could be our first Schenden border crossing

yes, there should be made connection A1-D425. i really hope D425 will be renamed, that name is extremely stupid.

about access to D8, that's true, know Vrgorac is south from town, so to reach D8 you must go to centre of Vrgorac, or you can take ŽC6208 via Staševica.

According to Google Earth, D62 road runs through the territory of Bosnia-Herzegovina for a brief distance east of Vrgorac. Is this correct, and are there border checks?

Thanks. As for renaming D425 to A1, that would require building second carriageway, right? Because as far as I remember there are two tunnels and a few bridges that are only half profile. Or does your law permit half-profile motorways? Well, now that I think of it, it probably does, for example tunnel Mala Kapela before 2009 comes to mind

That always baffled me too, maybe it's an error on Google's part? There certainly aren't any border checks there, at least I haven't encountered any, and I've driven on that road once every summer since 2004.

Earlier this year I have been driving from Ravča to Ploče on D62 near the border. Chris is right: Google Earth really shows the border intersecting D62 near Vrgorac, which is marked with letters A and B on photo below:

What is interesting here: that day I was on trip from Split to Dubrovnik and back. On return, I took the Ploče expressway (number 2) and later the road D513 to road D62. On the right side, there are two huge unfinished viaducts (2x2, number 4), obviously of the same expressway. Under the last curve of D513 I saw something like tunnel in construction (2x2, number 5), whether of the expressway or of the future A1 motorway. I am asking myself: would the tiny part of A1 be constructed almost on the border and why is it so?
The dotted line represents probable route of motorway A1 from Vrgorac to Ploče, number 1 finished motorway to Ravča and number 3 section from Ravča to Vrgorac which has been opened today.

Chris, there are no border checks on D62. Two of them are a few hundred meters north from D62, on the connecting roads to Ljubuški.
