Wouldn't know for sure, but it is in the 1,000 km ballpark, 100 more or less.

Edit: HUKA says 1,163 km

In the summer it can be about one to two hours wait, but it's usually very short.

i have found where i had counted it few months ago. if i update it now, we get 978 km of full-profiled motorways right now. by the end of year we'll have 996 km of them. and we have 272 km of expressways.
let me represent them precisly:

D1 Split(Bilice) - Dicmo 18 km (1+2, partially 2/2 with green belt in the middle),
D3 Matulji - Orehovica 14 km (2/2 cca 3 km Matulji - Diračje, being upgraded at full section into 2/2)
A7 Orehovica - Sv. Kuzam 6 km (2/2)
D8 Kaštel Gomilica - Stobreč 15 km (2/2, partially with intersections with traffic lights)
D28 Sv. Helena - Gradec 25 km (2/2)
D33 Šibenik - Tromilja 10 km (1+1)
D502 Gaženica - Zadar 2 18 km (2/2)
D522 Udbina - Gornja Ploča 15 km
Ddunno-the-number - Čaporice 6 km

Σ 127 km

A2 tunel Sv. Tri kralja - Đurmanec 4 km
B8 Matulji - Kanfanar 64 km
B9 Pula - Umag 77 km

Σ 145 km

ΣΣ 272 km



A1 Lučko - Šestanovac 417 km
A2 Jankomir - Trakošćan 59 km *
A3 GP Bregana - GP Bajakovo 305 km
A4 Ivanja Reka - Goričan 97 km
A5 Sredanci - Đakovo 23 km
A6 Bosiljevo 2 - Orehovica 81 km **
A7 Matulji - Rupa 17 km

Σ 999 km

* A2 - 4 km between the tunnel Sveta Tri kralja and exit Đurmanec are made as half-profiled 1/1, upgrade expected soon.

** A6 - 17 km are still made in half-profile as 1/1 or 2/1. upgrade is being finnished and expected to have full motorway till the end of 2008.

EuroTAP - Tunnel Test 2008

Veliki Gložac

EUROTAP rating: Very good

Location: Croatia, near Vrbovsko A 6 between Zagreb and Rijeka

Year opened: North tube in 2004/ south tube in 2007

Length: 1,130m

Portal height level: 494 / 473m above sea level

Number of tubes: 2 / unidirectional traffic

Speed limit: 100kph

Vehicles per day: 10,750

Share of HGVs: 15%

Breakdowns / accidents / fires: 8 / 0 / 0

Risk: Low


Strengths

* Two tubes with cross-connections as additional escape and rescue routes every 320 metres max.
* Traffic lights and barriers in front of the portals
* Traffic radio throughout the tunnel, the operator can broadcast messages
* Full video surveillance
* Automatic detection of traffic disruptions, as well as the use of lay-bys, emergency phones or fire extinguishers
* Lay-bys in the middle of the tunnel
* Sound-insulated emergency phones and fire extinguishers provided every 300 metres
* Evacuation lighting for tunnel escape routes, showing the escape direction and distance to the nearest exit
* No smoke or heat can penetrate into external escape routes, doors are sufficiently fire-resistant
* Automatic fire alarm system, in the event of fire, fire ventilation is automatically activated and the tunnel closed
* Ventilation is powerful enough to deal with a fire
* Rescue service vehicles can cross at the portals
* Rescue route for emergency service vehicles leading to neighbouring tube located in the middle of the tunnel
* Tunnel control centre manned around the clock by trained staff
* Radio communications possible throughout the tunnel for tunnel staff, police and fire brigade
* Up-to-date and complete emergency response plan
* Regular training for tunnel staff
* Regular emergency drills

Weaknesses

* No loudspeakers
* Distance between emergency phones and fire extinguishers is 300 metres and hence relatively long
* The maximum time of use for the fire brigade's respiratory equipment is too short

Briefly and to the point

* The low risk found for driving through the tunnel was primarily due to the low traffic volume of around 11,000 vehicles per day with unidirectional traffic and a tunnel length of only 1.1 kilometres. The HGV share, however, is 15 percent.
* Unidirectional traffic, sufficiently wide lanes, lay-bys and lighting are the main reasons for the very good result for preventive measures. The tunnel is monitored around the clock in a tunnel control centre manned by trained staff.
* Incidents in the tunnel are automatically reported to the tunnel control centre by video link. If necessary, motorists are guided using traffic lights and variable traffic signs along with information provided via traffic radio. An automatic fire alarm system detects fires, activates ventilation, and closes the tunnel. The short distance to be covered by the fire brigade and the supply of fire-fighting water in the tunnel ensure effective fire fighting. An emergency response plan and regular drills ensure good co-operation between the tunnel control centre and the emergency services.
* In the event of fire, there are good necessary preconditions in place for effective self-rescue. The ventilation system draws smoke out of the tube affected in the direction of traffic to a zone where there are usually no people.Anybody downstream from the fire is located in a smoke-free zone and can leave the tunnel through the clearly marked emergency exits.

In any case, I know Hungarians also count their 2-lane expressways, like most of M70, in the length of their motorways (though you Croats stopped doing that). They know they aren't motorways, but they count them in. For example, I only count in 4-lane expressways, but if anyone's interested, I have the length of (real) motorways too (in Slovenia, I mean). As for numbering, A8/A9 doesn't necessarily mean it's a motorway (autocesta), rather than expressway (brza cesta), b/c it's scheduled for both to become motorways soon, so in Croatia you just eliminated the B* designations, if I'm correct. The Slovenian H4 is also partly motorway, for example.
