Hello my friends from Croatia!
Could you tell me how long (approximately) the journey from Zadar to Dubrownik takes? There is motorway completed to Split, right? What about the last part to Dubrovnik? Is it comfortable, any traffic etc?

depends of traffic intensity, but about 3,5 h. existing road Split - Dubrovnik is usual 2 lanes road (at few sections 3 or 4 lanes (extra lanes for slow vehicles)). that road is not for fast driving, it has quite a lot curves (but not 90°curves or something like that), you can drive constantly 70-90 km/h without problems if it is not crowded (in summer it is very crowded!). but that road is a road with the best scenery around in Croatia. i passed it 3 years ago whole from Dubrovnik to Rijeka - it is absolutely fantastic, you'll be enjoying it!

Thank you x-type! I'm visiting Croatia on May and I just can't wait to see your beautiful country, cities and new motorways too, especially A1
Greetings from Poland!

I think the Croatian A1 motorway/freeway has become so famous, that they should copyright "A1"!

Greeting from Poland,

could you help with the status of A2 (I think this is the number) Zagreb-Slovenia (Maribor)??

on the whole way from Warsaw to Korcula that I would travel again soon, this was the biggest nightmare!!

Best regards and good luck with the Peljesac bridge - this would really help!!

This has even more to do with Slovenia, so, motorway Maribor - Ptuj (as well as Maribor motorway bypass) will be completed in 2009, Ptuj - Croatia around 2013.

(btw, are you sure waiting in the port of Split wasn't bigger nightmare?)

nop ;-)

the way to Korcula I always take through peljesac and a short ferry trip (usually I get there late in the evening)

the way back I take a ferry to split ;-)

and how are the other project going on in Slovenia? my family lived for a few years in Trbovlje, thus I have a huge sentiment to your country, as to other balkan countries:-)

Best regards

Hm, interesting. I don't know which projects exactly you're having in mind, so I'll just give you this link.

Best regards

Hi!

Are there any information about the Hungarian-Croatian border crossing with the bridge over the Mura river? I live pretty far from the border, so could someone update me?

EuroTAP: ADAC testet 51 europäische Tunnel

Bewegung in Europas Tunneln: Stolze 29 Röhren sind beim diesjährigen Test im Rahmen von EuroTAP auf der Siegesspur unterwegs. 18 von 51 Testkandidaten bekamen beim neunten europaweiten Tunnelcheck das Prädikat „sehr gut“. Elf Tunnel zeichneten die ADAC-Experten mit der Note gut aus. Auf gutem Weg sind auch noch die zwölf Röhren, die mit ihrem Ausreichend zumindest die Maßstäbe der EU-Richtlinie zur Sicherheit in Straßentunneln erfüllen.

Doch auch auf der Straße der Verlierer reiht sich Tunnel an Tunnel: Zehn Probanden zeigten die Tester die rote Karte, drei Mal mit der Wertung bedenklich, sieben Mal gar mit mangelhaft. Damit fiel gut jeder fünfte Testkandidat durch.

Im Scheinwerferlicht des Testsiegers sonnen darf sich heuer der kroatische Tunnel Brinje auf der A 1 Zagreb - Split. Drei Jahre alt und rund eineinhalb Kilometer lang erweist er sich als Musterknabe in Sachen Tunnelsicherheit. Den letzten Platz haben ein Mal mehr die Italiener für sich gebucht: Testverlierer ist der 40 Jahre alte, etwas mehr als einen Kilometer lange Paci 2 auf der A 3 Salerno – Reggio Calabria bei Scilla - nichts weiter als ein schwarzes Loch.

Auch heuer fand der Test im Rahmen des europäischen Projekts EuroTAP statt. EuroTAP wird von der EU-Kommission und zwölf europäischen Partnerclubs unterstützt.

EUROPEAN TESTING

Brinje Tunnel – The Best European Tunnel

The Brinje tunnel on the Zagreb-Split road has captured the first place out of 51 tunnels tested across Europe. The largest losers were Italian tunnels, which were described as ‘black holes’. The Brinje tunnel was opened in 2004.

Great job!

I wonder how long it takes until we've pictured all of Europe's motorways!

The Netherlands, Germany, France, Switzerland, Czechia, Poland, Slovenia and Croatia are highly covered, and i can tell you; it is likely that this summer, Belgium and Luxemburg will be released on www.roadpics.net
