I drove throu some kind of secondary road in mountains to avoid paying fee last year. It was very beautiful but i lost a few hours.
15€ weekly, 30€ monthly. probably Šentilj - Obrežje, right?

Šentilj - Ptuj - Croatian Border. That is about 45km of highway.

Last year I drove Mureck - Lenart - Ptuj and to Zagreb.

The most beautiful overpass I've ever seen on a motorway!

Today's afternoon rushhour accident on A1 motorway Ljubljana - Koper, resulting in about 30 km of total traffic jams on A1 motorway A1 and ring motorway around Ljubljana (not counting tens of kilometers of other nearby roads):

It was said, that tire of a truck with all that cargo exploded, and truck crashed into middle barrier (which is old and therefore weak type). Truck from oposite direction crashed into cargo, which was then on both pavements.

Today a newspaper article was written about second motorway tube of Karavanke/Karawanken tunnel. Two options are preferable: second traffic tube, which is preferable for Slovenia, and additional escape tunnel, which is preferable by Austria. First option should cost about 250 mil. €, second one just 60. As currently there is AADT of just under 7000, Austria prefers making escape tunnel only (they are building or planning to build many second tunnel tubes all over Austria, so this is economically logical). Solution must be found before 2019.

However I think, that with Croatia and Serbia joining EU in next 10 years, traffic on Taurernautobahn and Karavanke tunnel should increase drastically. I hope, that Austria considers that.

With motorway traffic management, a second traffic tube can also work as an escape tube. For example if a fire breaks out at one tube, traffic in the other tube is stopped before the tunnel, so the other tube can function as an escape tube. Best of both worlds.

Just that escape tubes are not build for passenger or freight traffic (except small service vehicles). And all longer double-tubed motorway tunnels work as traffic+escape tube in emergency. It would be at least wise to bore another tube in profile as a standard traffic tube, just it wouldn't be equipped with traffic and safety equipment. just emergency (like they did in Croatia). It works as a escape tube at all times, but converting it into traffic tube wouldn't be difficult.

Is there any recent news about the A4 extension to the Croatian border?

Currently there is a spatial plan for that motorway in the making and it should be finished and accepted by the government before end of this year. Construction should start next year (but I doubt because of current financial situation).
