I only write because no Croatian admits that their motorways are overpriced.

i think that it is the fact that croatian motorways are overpriced, but they are not low quality.

No, they arenīt low quality, but they arenīt highest quality either, they are of lower quality then the motorways in Slovenia for example, the new asphalt motorways in Austria are also of higher quality, look better, feel softer, I donīt want to drive on asphalt that is as hard as concrete.

Do you happen to know if there is a recipe that roadbuilders in Croatia could use to prevent asphalt from hardening like concrete? Next time you are in Austria, please do ask those roadworkers out there if they could be willing to share the secret of the soft asphalt paving. Maybe they use carpet padding ...who knows.

I guess they use more bitummin so that it is soft, in Croatia probably only hard stones are used and not soft rubberlike bitummin.

You mean "bitumen"?

Besides, that is not why either. Bitumen emulsion - type 'elastin' has been in use in Croatia for a long time now. No telling man, I suppose this enigma will remain unsolved, unless you tell us what 'ingredients' have been used on the supreme Struma motorway? Good thing you have started questioning the quality level of the motorway system in Croatia with such precision and consistency like no one has ever before. You got the talent, man!

Come on guys, we have to admit that Radi is telling the truth. I never, really never experienced smoother, softer, nicer gliding than on highway between Ljubljana and Postojna. I almost have the same experience on Struma highway, but beside the fact that gliding was almost perfect as on Slovenian roads, shiny crash barriers was something that will shine in my memory always. Despite the fact that such big and prosperous country have only 441 km of highways, and that almost 2/3 was built by the money that gave them EU citizens, we, that built our highways by ourselves, will never reach that level of perfection. But honest as I am, I will never be jealous on Radi and Struma. So I suggest that all of us give Radi special status here. Ignore him, please... Just go over his posts. We have such great pictures on our national forum, we have so great projects in final phase (Djakovo - Osijek, Rijeka Bypass, Sv. Rok and Kapela tunnels....). Can we finally agree not to spam our international thread with Radi?????

Not all Croatian motorways are built by yourselves.
