(Sorry if this has been asked a million times before :-))

With the construction of the A4 on the Slovenian side completing some time in the nearer future, are there any plans on Croatian side to upgrade the single-carriageway section near Krapina?

Or is the strategy for the summer months to keep border control speed slow enough for a single-carriageway, and thus to keep the traffic jam on the Slovenian side, rather than before the Krapina tunnels?

there are plans but realization is not in progress. probably if that single carriageway part would cause major jams, it would be doubled. i see potential problem because A2 is under quite bad concession where Strabag holds 51% of it.

Are there no traffic jams before the 2-lane section towards Slovenia?

This is reportedly near Zadar, after flash floods.

Some users posted pictures in the Croatian forum lately http://www.skyscrapercity.com/showth...85992&page=132

Regarding the section from A5/A3 to the HR/BIH border: Apparently, Croatia has finished construction of the whole section all the way down to Sava river. At the same time, Bosnia has now opened some 10km between Svilaj and Odžak (on the other side of Sava river), which are entirely useless as long as the bridge is not there. The bridge itself is still in a rather early stage, all there is so far are some pillars.

This news article from November stated that the bridge should be finished within 24 months.

The works around the bridge west of Osijek seem quite finished, but obviously still not in use. In 2018, works are planned from the northern side of the bridge towards Beli Manastir. According to the new four-year road construction plan of the government, as referred to in the article linked above, the section from Osijek to Beli Manastir will be built in full profile

Unfortunately, there is not a lot of news about the current construction. I am not sure how fast things will go from now.

Section of A5 north of Osijek incl. the bridge is finished but can not be opened before the first exit in Beli Manastir is finished (as Čeminac is currently suspended). And it is epected that the motorway north of the bridge will start to be built somewhere in late 2018, so this section can not be opened before second half od 2020.
It is really absurd: we have bridge on Drava but not connecting roads, on Sava we have roads but not the bridge. Perhaps in 2021 will be possible to drive straight from Budapest to Modriča, with some luck even to Doboj.

Afaik that section is finished since long time. But the of course Sava bridge is missing. And since there is no Exit, it's not opened.

It's more like 1 km instead of 2

The most precise truth is that cca 2100 metres of motorway is waiting to be opened. That includes the distance between the centre of the exit Svilaj on A5 and the cadastre boundary of the Republic of Croatia (so it includes cca half of the bridge too).

If you would cound only missing part to be built, it is cca 400 metres.

Just read on a news website that China will build the Bridge in Ploče and continue in the peninsula towards Dubrovnik, avoiding Neum in Bosnia, is there any contrite progress on the topic and when is it likely to start?

this is good news, there is no sense in the double crossing, even though, if I read openstreetmap well, the first one was already built, right?

The question will be how to connect the bridge to the existing motorway network. I assume they won't extend A1 from the current terminus to the bridge, so it will be the expressway down to Ploče, then a few km on the old D8 state road all the way to the bridge.

Another issue: What to do with the state road on the peninsula - I've driven it a few times and it is really inadequate for transit - narrow, winding and slow, passing through a few villages. There would have to be a real solution (at least a grade-separated 1x1 expressway with space for future upgrades) to Zaton Doli.

Is there no space for a motorway?

There is and there are/were plans for expressway to be built. The most likely one includes 2 tunnels at Pelješac as the part of connector from the bridge to D414.



There are also some other plans which plan extension of that connector back to D8 south of penninsula. Something like this:


And third, there are some long term plans for connecting A1 (or A1 connector to Ploče named D425) to the bridge over or under Neretva valley. There is plan with number of tunnels under the valley, but I would rather see large viaduct over it, similar to viaduct Coltano at A12 in Italy near Livorno.

My post on this thread was deleted which is wrong and I want to present now some information regarding this project.

First of all we know this project is political but let me put my thoughts. Although I think that Pelješki most should be built there was a better option:

The best way for resolving this issue was for the Federation of BiH and Croatia to negotiate a corridor from via KLEK and NEUM so to speak as it was in the West Berlin connected to West Germany.
So to speak Croatia would have saved LOADS of money. BiH would profit and no need for gigantic bridge.

This corridor would have worked as with no border controls and Croatia would have paid money to FBiH so to speak ONLY from 1st of May until 1st of September. After that regular border will operate. In the meantime BiH police would have watch out the corridor but take in mind that anyway entering BiH is anyway easy for Western tourists.
