That's far future though. There will also be a motorway/expressway Novo mesto (Slovenia) - Karlovac (Croatia) - Bihać (B&H) - Sarajevo in the future.

When and if the motorway from Banja Luka (with a connection to Nova Gradiška) to Split is ever completed do you think it will be a quicker route to Zagreb from Spilt, instead of the Adriatic route? Do you think people would use it?

I heard about that proposal, but I don't think that highway will ever be built, especially since the Zagreb - Sisak motorway is under construction. It seems like Zagreb beat Ljubljana to the punch on this one.

^ I don't care what Croats build, we'll build it mainly to connect to motorway for Split better. We'll just ask for 5 km of motorway.

I assume you must be joking about the the 5 km's through Croatia, but don't you think a better connection from Lj. would be Zgb - Sisak - BL - and south to Spilt? Rather than the route you said was far in the future.

^ Actually we'll have the motorway between Rijeka and Žuta Lokva (Zadar, Split) anyway. But if I turn from Ljubljana towards SE (rather than SW), it's now quite a detour over Zagreb, so a good solution would be a motorway between Novo mesto and Bosiljevo. And yes, there are only 5 km between Bosiljevo (motorway) and Slovenian border.

Good point, a motorway from Novo Mesto - Črnomelj - Bosiljevo, would then link directly to Split, making a much faster connection from Ljubljana. Do you think it would be in the interests of Croatia to eventually build that 5 km link?

Croatia will build it, it is in long time plans, the same long time terms as this optimistic network drawn in microsoft paint on this extra archaic map. are there some more serious documents about this network? for instance, some official government's plans about it?

btw, if this route from Gradiška in direction Split would be buit, only peple from east Croatia and from that direction would use it because it would be shorter route. central and northwest Croatia - no. it would be to minor distance difference to pass 2 borders. but nice alternative way in the case of crowd or bad weather conditions.

What percentage of motorways are built from the national budget and what percentage are built on a concessions basis? And what sections?

Hey guys,
I'm very glad to see how things improve in Croatia.
In September last year I drove the whole A1 Zagreb-Sestanovac while going to Montengro which is the best motorway I've ever driven, no traffic and also no police controlling your speed.
I know that It'll reach Ploce by the end of 2008 but is there anyone knowing when they're gonna expand the motorway from Ploce to Dubrovnik?
And I've heard they'd build it suoth of Dubrovnik some 30-40 km's via Bosnian-Hercegovinian territory towards Montenegro and not following the route of D8. Does anyone know is that?

I see you're new and haven't heard of Struma.

They say Croatia is too narrow there (and they make fun of Slovenia ), which I don't believe, and they don't want transit traffic there (Adriatic-Ionian motorway), which I can't understand either.

Welcome to SSC, btw.

I don't believe either because the width of motorway would be about 30 meters and I'm sure Croatia is wider than that

Anyway, thanks.

be aware, that motorway is full of police controling your speed in civil cars!

we're still in motorway cinstruction plan which lasts up to 2008. i guess that this year ministry will make next 5 years plan for further coinstruction, so we'll see what will be with Dubrovnik. so far we know that A1 will reach Ploče in 2010. (govoernment was lying about reaching Ploče in this year, but it was so obvious that there's no chance about it even earlier; however, they have successfully bought the votse from that area)

if you keep it up to 150 (according to your speedometer), they are not reacting. and you can recognize them - they have vectra, superb, mondeo, accord, 330d, c-class, passat and touareg in dark silver or black colour. so if you see something similar behind you, let him go and when he gets far, you're free again

I overtook a black Touareg near Dugopolje.
Thanks, I'll be aware of them when I'm going to Croatia next time (hopefully very soon)
As I'm driving a Renault Twingo there is no danger that I'm going very much over 150, actually most was 174 downhill
