Nice update

Some sections seems to be almost finished (only final layer and road furniture), others need to have some more work done.

Slovenian traffic minister said yesterday, "no motorway widenings around Ljubljana or elsewhere, we'll invest in railways instead".
(at least until he is a minister)

Means more traffic problems around Ljubljana.

Too bad. And that while widening the motorway ring around Ljubljana would be enough, the country is small and Ljubljana isn't that big so you don't need 8-lane motorways everywhere. I think widening the ringroad to six lanes is sufficient for the coming years.

Especially in countries like Slovenia, congestion on motorways can easily and cheaply be solved with adding one lane. Traffic volumes won't jump to 150,000+.

Stupid decision. 6 lanes all the way to Domžale aren't that necessary IMO, but definitely to Ljubljana-Šentjakob (road for Litija). I understand, if they don't wanna widen the northern bypass, because it isn't transit, but the rest is necessary, and it will affect whole Slovenia, not just Ljubljana. Ljubljana is almost in the geographic center of Slovenia, and widening to 6 lanes would solve the problem for decades.

Well, a lot of politicians are now in that "human induced global warming" area, and think that increasing congestion is gonna solve that.

Our polititians seem to be one of more supportive. However our minister of transport is again not the one to make wise decisions. I hope that worsening situation will persuade new minister to advance idea about widening motorways.

Actually, the fastest route from Ljubljana to Linz is via Maribor and Graz. But it's only 10 km shorter.
