That border crossing is called Požane (Croatian side) and Sočerga (Slovenian side) respectively.

@Verso: They do traffic checks everywhere. In the end of the year, the border between the Netherlands and Belgium is very well protected because of Dutch people buying illegal fireworks in Belgium. And not only on the roads, also in the trains. When I went to Vienna in february I was with a friend (both 16 at that time) and German custom officers stripped the whole compartment, looking for drugs. Not surprising, considering that fact that many 16 year old Dutch people use drugs

Well........























.....they didn't, I don't use drugs. They were very interested in all my stuff and it took them about 15 minutes to check my bag, my friend's bag, our jackets and the beer bag. One of the two inspected every single card of my drugs card deck, that I once won on a festival

I don't know for other order crossings but at Dobovec(SLO)/Lupinjak(HR) (which is often used as a bypass for Gruškovje) I waited once 1 hour and once 1,5 hour to entry Slovenia but there was no waiting time in Slovenia because two lanes were opened, but on Croatian side was only one lane opened and one police officer!

Does this count for entering Croatia, entering Slovenia or both?

for that information you need to know tourist customs during summer...
major wave of tourists comes on fridays after their work week, and could extend over whole weekend...
on the other hand, tourist that are returning back go on sundays morning...
those movings are pretty complex, and depend on lots of factors involved...
but if you look generally... jams happen mostly during weekend days no matter what direction or what border crossing...

I usually try not to travel on fridays or saturdays in the peak season anyway. The chance you're getting stuck in a traffic jam on those days is big.

You're right. Two years ago it took us 13 hours to drive from Abcoude to Bad Tölz (just below Munich, 876 km), and this was on a friday.

RED -40 km section Šestanovac to Ravča should be open by the end of this year. Also by that time the expressway from Karamatići junction to Ploče town should be finished.

LIGHT GREEN -Remaining Ravča to Ploče section is scheduled to be finished by the end of 2009 – though some highway junkies here on SSC, HR section, claim it cannot be done before 2010.

DARK BLUE - As far as I know, there are still many disputes about this section. What I know is that the government announced the beginning of construction for the section Doli – Osojnik for the spring 2009.

Maybe I should stress out Im not really an expert on this, this is what I (think I) know.

Thanks. Wikipedia states the A1 will be finished to Ploče by December 2008.

It should continue of course, there is something called Adriatic-Ionian highway corridor or smth, Croatia- MNE – AL - Greece. Not sure about the details like timeline. I’m sure some of Cro highwayers will jump in with that info.
