Motorway is not busy at all, and it is without a toll!

I was pissed.
It's like that everywhere in Europe. If there is no speed limit sign, general speed limit apply. I think Slovenia made good transformation from Yugoslavian to European system in recent years.

Not sure if it was always like that. For example, main road Macelj-Krapina had a general speed limit few years ago. When they started constructing motorway and they repaved all section, they lowered speed limit to 60 km/h while this high quality road is good for 120+ km/h. And there are barely any houses along the road.

The same happened with road Macelj-Trakoščan. They fixed and repaved road and they put 40 km/h (?!?) speed limit on all section. There are 0 houses along the way with plenty of straight stretches where you can drive very fast. I found this riduculous.

I know that, but absence of speed limitation signs in whole country like in Hungary can be frustrating if you have missed sign on the border.

Construction of Dubrovnik motorway section starts



DUBROVNIK, May 11 (Hina) - Contracts on the construction of the 29.6-kilometre Dubrovnik-Doli section of the Zagreb-Dubrovnik motorway and nearby roads were signed on Monday at the future construction site of the motorway hub outside Dubrovnik.

All the investments cost HRK 3.67 billion, and the construction should be wrapped up within 30 months.

Prime Minister Ivo Sanader and some other government officials attended today's ceremony of signing the agreements.

I use it all the time. 40 km/h would be appropriate for 2 curves at the begging and some curves at the final end of 8 km stretch. But not for the middle pretty straight part. Why even post speed limit sign? Just leave a general speed limit rule like the rest of the Europe because it is absurd that you can exceed speed limit with your rollers.

Zagreb-Split motorway tunnels will open tomorrow



Both tubes of the Sveti Rok and Mala Kapela tunnels on the Zagreb-Split motorway will be open tomorrow (saturday).

The Sveti Rok Tunnel near Lika is 5,687 metres long and goes through Velebit Mountain. One tube of the tunnel was opened in 2003.

The other tunnel - the Mala Kapela Tunnel - goes through Mala Kapela Mountain. One tube of the tunnel was opened in 2005. The other tube is 5,821 metres long.

Both tunnels will be closed to traffic from 10pm today until 10am tomorrow to enable last-minute work to be completed.

Minister of the Sea, Transport and Development Bozidar Kalmeta will officially open both tunnel tubes tomorrow morning.

The two tunnel tubes that will open tomorrow cost 787.5 million kunas or 107 million Euros.

so they are both open since 2 hours, great!

Yes photos would be appreciated .

Is the reason for the tunnels merely engineering related or is it because of the natural parks in the area?

Reasons for tunnels are high mountains.
Natural parks are not on Motorway route.

Before this opening, there were only one tube open on both tunnels (two direction traffic - one lane each direction), and in the summer time, there were traffic jams.


Some details about Zageb Rijeka Railway line
http://puo.mzopu.hr/UserDocsImages/Elaborat_0604091.pdf
It is not so high speed - 200 km/h max
It is in croatian - maybe google can help you translate.
