If I understand correctly, they are already constructing the A5 bridge across the Drava River.

I think traffic volumes will remain low for the forseeable future. Eastern Slavonia is the least developed region of Croatia and international traffic towards Bosnia will remain low. The overall economy of Croatia is quite bad at the moment, high unemployment, economic contraction and high government debt.

Building the D425 between A1 and D8 near Ploče. A part of that road is ready for driving.

Is there similar data for D8 available? It'd be an interesting comparison.

The traffic volume on the D8 and on the A1 is very similar. I guess the traffic volume on the motorway south of Sestanovac will increase after A1 will be completed up to Ploce.
The A1 is in the middle of nowhere, but I guess the traffic on the A1 will also increased if the connectors from Baska Voda, Drevenik will be available.

Building a motorway near Dubrovnik would be wise. Do you also have data of the D8 south of Dubrovnik?

Btw: someone added the future route of A1 from Dubrovnik to Cilipi on OSM (> click <). Is that really the approved route?

To be honest I'm not sure building a full profile motorway there would be justified, bear in mind this is data from summer (I'm guessing this is much higher then annual average) and still traffic volumes south of Neum aren't that high. There is an influx of traffic around Dubrovnik itself, I wonder where those cars come from

I think, although it can't be justified as such now, the existing road is so tedious and long winded that it surely discourages development in Southern Dalmatia as it is. Dubrovnik will boom once Croatia joins the EU and restrictions on staying are lifted - and a motorway may increase the desirability of the area. At the very least, I'd say getting a Dubrovnik Airport-Dubrovnik motorway built should be done.

I don't expect much progress in Montenegro for many years - but if Croatia has a decent link from MNE to BiH, then there might be encouragement for the EU to help build a motorway from Herceg-Novi too.

That's not the A1. It's the new planned expressway from Dubrovnik to the Airport (Ćilipi), let's say the new alignment of the D8 highway (jadranska magistrala). I think it will firstly be built as 1+1 with grade-separated crossings and its primary purpose is to provide fast and safe drive from the airport to the city. The route shown in OSM is probably the one from the Dubrovnik county spatial plans
