It is designed as a suspended steel assembly on the crossing above the river Drava and the semi-prefabricated concrete structures on the sides.

The bridge is 2507 m long, and the main span-construction over the river Drava, 420 m in lenght, consists of composite steel beams, reinforced concrete piers and the brace. The load-bearing steel beam is coupled with reinforced concrete slab.

Access parts of the bridge over the left and right coast of Drava river in length of 2087 m have been designed as two separate bridges with spans of 35 m, except in areas of the abutments. The construction of the bridge will perform the work on the regulation of the Drava River 3 km in length, regulation of Vučica river, which flows also under the projected bridge. These works include profiling beds and the construction of additional hydro facilities.

In designing this highly demanding building construction was influenced by a numeruousf elements: the conditions of navigation and vessel profile of the river Drava, coast width of the river Drava, riverbed of Vučica, a defensive embankment for flood protection and nature protection requirements into the Drava Wetlands.

Work on the construction of a bridge over the river Drava will be run by a business association consisting of: Viadukt dd, Zagreb-leading partner; Koteks dd Osijek, Osijek; Konstruktor Inženjering dd, Split; Skladgradnja-Group Ltd, and Imotski Hidroelektra niskogradnja dd Zagreb.

Contracted price is HRK 949,386,067.65 excluding VAT with a period of performance of 30 months. Funding for the bridge loan is secured by KfW bank.
thats google translated. in short:
-suspension bridge above the riverbed, l=420 metres
-on each side access bridges
-total lenght: 2507 metres
-start of construction: 11th July 2011
-costs: 949 386 067,65 HRK or app. 130 000 000€

Speaking of bridges - what's happening with Pelješac Bridge? Is the construction still on hold?

Apart from the Gotthard Tunnel, there were no significant holiday delays in other parts of Europe today... except for Croatia.

You could take a ferry from Rijeka for example

Anyway, if you're planning on going somewhere in high season, be prepared for some serious traffic jams...

And that's one of the reasons for widening the A1 between Zagreb and (at least) Karlovac to 3 lanes in each direction, because that part of A1 is the only link between northern and east Croatia and the coast (Dalmatia-A1, Kvarner&Istra-A6). It's 40 km on a flat terrain, so it's not so difficult. Maybe it wouldn't solve the whole problem, but sure it would reduce the jams or increase the flow of the traffic.

But the jam wouldn't be so big if there's a bigger number of those who pay the toll with credit/debit cards - the 2 lanes on the left side of the picture are reserved for them!

I think the toll stations are the major bottlenecks. It looks like this one has only some 6 toll gates westbound, in France toll stations on major holiday routes often have 12 or even 20 toll gates in the peak direction.

There are national roads D1 (Zagreb-Karlovac-Knin-Split) which is an alternative for A1 towards Dalmatia, and D3 (Zagreb-Karlovac-Delnice-Rijeka) as an alternative for A1+A6 towards Rijeka and Istria.
http://www.wikimapia.org/#lat=45.671...4&z=11&l=0&m=o

To get to these roads in Zagreb, you have to take the first right exit at Lučko intersection and follow the yellow signs for Karlovac or Rijeka:

Yeah, I can second that... Last year on my way to HR, we had a huge delay at Zagreb, but I noticed that "card booths" at Lučko were opened, so on our way back I just took the card booth lanes and it took me approx. 5 minutes to pass Lučko toll booth. The non-card lanes were really full that day, causing significant delay...

The sole size of the toll station is not a problem. The problem is the fact that this is the point where all directions from north and east (A2, A3 from SLO, A3 from Slavonia and A4) come to one point where the toll system begins (where you get the toll card, which is not a long procedure). But A1 is so highly congested that there's no enough space to drive on. The traffic often reduces at Karlovac exit (because of the daily commuters and local people going on the "old" road), and at the Bosiljevo-II junction it's ok, because that's the spot where 2 motorways split (A1 and A6).

Regarding Lučko toll station (direction north, to Zagreb) - that's the problem, because everyone has to pay the toll, which takes a while. But the jam would be reduced if they use automatic/electronic paying system at the Demerje station (3 km from Lučko/Zg), from which those 2 lanes are separated until Zagreb:

According to the summer average daily traffic counts, A1 carries 53 000 vehicles per day (31 000 yearly average). That shouldn't be too big a problem for a 2x2 motorway (there are 2x2 motorways in the Netherlands which carry 100 000 vehicles per day). I don't know exactly how they calculate the ASDT, maybe it's just the June-July-August average, and not necessarily Saturday peaks.

Most of the time, the traffic runs smoothly, but there are jams even during the rest of the year, at evenings, when lots of people are getting back from Dalmatia/Istria to Zagreb, and then you drive 40 km/h from Karlovac to Zg because of the jams

The biggest problems appear during the summer (especially weekends) because lots of people (from Croatia and rest of the Europe) are going towards the coast and also lots of them are returning home. The wider A1 would help reducing the jams, because it's the common route for those going south and west...
