You expect those kinds of advice before attempting to drive to North Cape. Or along the Alaska Highway. Or in the Australian outback.

Seriously, imagine if Sv Rok and Mala Kapela tunnels were still single-tubed today... maybe 100km of queue?

Why 100 km? It would be the same since the tunnel was closed anyway.

Still a 25km jam in front of Sveti Rok according to HAK

What does it mean when they say that traffic is going in columns?

A queue? (i.e. mostly stationary traffic)?

If it is that, it's a horrible road to be stuck on - it's completely exposed, and if the bura was to start again, it would probably be complete hell.

Apparently it was taking around 11 hours to get from Zadar to Zagorje yesterday, and there's reports today of it taking 10 hours to get from Zagreb to the coast.

I think it means stop&go traffic, so still 25kms of stop&go traffic.

no, it cannot happen. bura lasts for more days only in late autumn and winter periods, never in summer. and chance for something similar again is miserable.

No, "usporeno u kolonama" means "congested traffic moving with difficulty".

The travel time from Zagreb to the Dalmatian coast was 'over 10 hours' yesterday. They call the traffic congestion 'unprecedented'.

What is the progress of the Osijek-Bela Palanka segment of the A5 motorway?

It's Beli Manastir, not Bela Palanka. In first place bridge over river Drava should be completed until end of this year. Instead of highway it will be built expresway from Osijek to border with Hungary until it will be necessary to expand. When will be built in the second phase of the motorway to a full profile, one can only assume will depend on the completion of construction of 5C through Bosnia and Herzegovina and bridge over Sava river near Svilaj.

Ooops, sorry, wrong city!
The expressway solution seems to be functional as well......but according to the photos above, the road is not u/c......is it going to start soon?

The section north of the bridge was definitely not u/c when I was in the area in May this year. The photos confirm that.

I think they are not too eager to get it done quickly for financial and other reasons.

It would've been good if it was completed......oh, by the way, i read in a previous post that the Sava bridge to BIH will be constructed, when is it going to begin?

Starting of construction is scheduled for September, and completion is planned after two years.

No such advice needed there, I'm afraid. Bring money, though, parking alone is 30 euros...

I am travelling to Croatia next week (on Saturday) and I would like to avoid the traffic jam at the border, so I have two questions:

1. Is this border crossing available for all EU citizens?

2. On the way back - is it a good idea to leave A2 at Durmanec and use the parallel D1 road to the border (https://www.google.pl/maps/dir/46.19...7d72!1m0!3e0)? I guess this terminal is closed and I need to use the terminal at the motorway?
