if so, which route ?
Last year I`ve chosen an alternative way and was satisfied - most of the time the road was empty and the quality was good;
leaving A2 (A) on exit 228 Spielfeld, route 67 to the border in Sentilj
437 to Pesnica (roundabout under A1)
3 to Lenart v Sl. Gor.
229 to Ptuj
2 to Drazenci (current end of A4)
9 to HR border (Macelj)
I hope that nothing has changed in Drazenci (Ptuj) since A4 is operating, because I was there on June 2009 when A4 wasn`t operating yet
it`s about 70km, if you`re lucky and don`t lose time in Ptuj, it`s possible to go across Slovenia in about 1h

i went to Gorizia yesterday. going there i didn't take any photos, but going back i shoud do it.

H4 just after border crossing Sant' Andrea/Vrtojba. feeling driving on it is just the same as driving on italian expressways


his part has green signs


Selo is the last exit before starting section with blue signs (although only colour of the signs is different, everything else is the same). i think that Selo used to be ending of that motorway for a long time from direction Italy




now we are and officialy on expressway, but signs for niches are still green




artificial tunnel Vipavski križ


somewhere around Ajdovščina


near Vipava signes for niches also become blue


i think this is the newest section after this place we start to climb

the longest tunnel on H4 - Tabor 590 m


scenery is cool. left - hill, right - chasm. it is not clever to drive too fast because right lane is also lane for slow vehicles, this sign reminds on that


the viaduct that you see far is already on A1 (Bandera maybe?)


some artificial tunnels (Rebernica)




some good cars...


oncoming toll station


and oncoming knot Razdrto


confusing...

I noticed newer toll stations have a separate toll barrier off the motorway for trucks. On older toll stations, all traffic has to pass through it. I wonder if there are plans to remove those older toll stations. There can't be that much of them.

Marché. bloody good and bloody expensive.

I have more like 'motorway' feeling on this expressway as I have on italian ones.

From user mmmartin, pictures taken this Sunday:

2 Edina stvar med Hrastjem in odcepom Mirna Peč, ki manjka, so ograje za motoriste.


3 Bodoči ocep Mirna Peč (na hitri cesti ga ni) bi lahko odprli konec junija, če bi bila končana cesta proti Mirni Peči. (fotografirano v smeri proti Ljubljani)


4 Viadukt Dole, v smeri proti Ljubljani že položena plast asfalta ...


5 ... polovica v smeri proti Novemu mestu še čaka na izolacijo.


6 V že povsem končano avtocesti vrtajo luknje. Ve kdo zakaj? Preverjajo izvedbo?


7 Avtocesta med viaduktom Dole in priključkom Trebnje-vzhod je skoraj dokončana (manjka še nekaj ograj in črt). (fotografirano v smeri proti Novemu mestu)


8 Še pogled nekaj metrov naprej v obratni smeri.


9 Gradnja zadrževalnikov.


10 Lep pogled na Sv. Ano v smeri proti Novemu mestu s skoraj iste točke.


11 Severni del priključka Trebnje-vzhod.


12 Do priključka Trebnje-vzhod (beri: do Kovačiča) je skoraj vse končano, od tu naprej proti Ljubljani še ni nikjer narisanih črt, manjka mnogo ograj, zaključni sloji asfalta marsikje niso položeni ...


13 Kovačič bo še malo nagajal - neposredno ob trasi so še razvaline njegovih tovornjakov, upam, da jih bodo odstranili do otvoritve, sicer bodo hudo kazili podobo trase.


14 Samo med tema nadvozoma pri Kovačiču trasa še ni povsem asfaltirana, plast asfalta je le na voznem pasu. (fotografirano v smeri proti Novemu mestu)


15 Is that shiny or what?!!!


16 Tu bo, sklepam, počivališče na polovici avtoceste proti Ljubljani, tisto proti Novemu mestu bo kakšna dva kilometra bližje Ljubljani.


17 Viadukt Ponikve. Protihrupne ograje so skoraj postavljene, polaga se izolacija. (fotografirano v smeri proti Ljubljani)


18 Se mi zdi, da je protihrupna ograja malo manj prosojna kot običajno in bolj prijazna pticam?


19 Polaganje zaščite na viaduktu Ponikve. (fotografirano v smeri proti Ljubljani)


20 Pod viaduktom Ponikve. (fotografirano v smeri proti Novemu mestu)


21 Pod viaduktom Ponikve.

23 Tabla čaka na postavitev.


24 Bodoče počivališče v smeri Novega mesta, ki ga ne bodo odprli konec junija.


25 Ima pa počivališče lepu ime, me veseli, da so izbrali taku ime, kot ga ma tu območje med domačini.


26 Pogled z avtoceste proti Trebnjemu je FENOMENALEN. NA delu bodo postavili protihrupne ograje. Ali kdo ve, če bodo prosojne? Škoda bi bilo, če ne bodo.


27 V delu trase, ki gre čez gozd, ograje namreč ne bodo prosojne.


28 Najlepši hodnik za pešce je že dokončan. (fotografirano v smeri proti Novemu mestu)


29 Ne, tu ne bo McDonald'sa, to so zaključki ograj.


30


31 Res lepa trasa nad Trebnjim. (fotografirano v smeri proti Novemu mestu)


32 Pred predorom Leščevje so elektrostrojna dela v polnem zamahu!


33 Pred predorom so na obeh straneh postavljeni vsi semaforji. (fotografirano v smeri proti Ljubljani)


34 V predoru, kot vidite luči že montirajo. Pred predorom stojijo tovornjaki Javne razsvetljave Ljubljana. (fotografirano v smeri proti Novemu mestu)


35 Kabli v predoru so pripravljeni.


36 Pogled na predor Leščevje v smeri proti Novemu mestu, na asfalt so položili katran, najbrž danes, v ponedeljek, asfaltirajo.


37 Končno so pri nas začeli postavljati takšne ograje in škarpe, na avtocesti proti Budimpešti takšne škarpe zgledajo res lepo.


38 Pogled proti predoru Leščevje z odcepa Trebnje-zahod.


39 Priključek Trebnje-zahod.
Opening of this section still scheduled for end of June 2010.

I appologise. Really Zagreb is on the every distance plate (the table after Višnja Gora interchange is missing). But, Zagreb is put on the interchange table only on the part which is finished before 1991, after Brežice and of course on the old expressway:

It seems that on the Višnja gora interchange plate Zagreb is in European Union (in Slovenia).

There are plans - they will be removed after implementation of satellite toll collection. That will not happen before 2012.

That plate dates back to Yugoslavian times. They should add the HR sign.
