yes, but X-type often said, slovenia hinders Croatia having a good economy earlier, I don't know whether he still thinks like that.

Ofcourse I did understand. but you think, only because they are not building the motorways fast, they are against Croatia?

Nice photos!

But a tad too big at 1600 pixels. 1024 would be best imo.

not basicly. radi, if you don't mind, i would like to talk about motorways here

this section around Karteljevo is probably the best looking part of A2 at whole motorway, especially that long curve just before ex-end of motorway where left and right direction lanes are not in the ame level

Just a curiosity, what will Slovenians do with the old toll stations?Are they going to dismantle them?They are an obstacle slowing down the speed.

They will be removed after the implementation of satellite or microwave toll collection system. It is planned for 2012, but we will see.

Supposably they can't remove the toll stations yet, becase part of them is still used for collecting the toll from trucks and buses.

The Slovenian motorway company DARS is becoming a private company and the owner of Slovenian motorways and expressways, which it will also finance.

http://translate.google.si/translate...2F&sl=sl&tl=en



Other than that, here are a few photos of a new road (to open in 3 days) bringing the smallest Slovenian municipality Osilnica (southern Slovenia by the Croatian border) closer to Ljubljana for ~30 km. It ascends from about 300 m in Osilnica to almost 1000 m on Goteniška gora. This was by now the fastest connection between Osilnica and Ljubljana. Pictures by umilave1 (I think you can see Croatia on some of them):

Cesta je praktično dokončana, odsek od Zgornjega Čačiča do Osilnice(3km) ostaja večinoma makadam. Sicer je super narejeno. Cesta uradno še ni odprta, vendar se ljudje vozijo in razgledujejo naokoli. Tako sem naredil nahitro nekaj slik kjer se cesta spušča v dolino Petra Klepca, ki jih malo pozno objavljam

1. serpentina


2. serpentina


Ograje so lesene


Na ovinku na koncu ravnine je predvideno manjše počivališče(slaba slika)




Ostri zavoji


Tu se odpira razgled na dolino reke Kolpe




Največji naklon naj bi znašal 15% Sicer je spust z najvišje točke(993m n.v.) večinoma precej strm.


Gradnja je bila kakopak zelo zahtevna

Too bad they don't use edge markings. I believe such markings are essential on rural roads.

serpente stands for snake in italian and serpeggiante and serpentina stand for winding (road/line)

unfortunately, it is not a custom in ex-YU countries, and it is more useful, than middle line. in HR i know only few roads with edge lines and without central one (maybe 5).

i also wanted to comment horizontal markings - i have already noticed those tiny dashed lines in SLO. they never turn into solid line, i guess that doesn't mean "allowed overtaking" but just marks the middle of the roads, right?

Yes, I think so, because it's not a good idea to overtake in a curve. Otherwise we unfortunately don't draw edge lines on less important roads such as this one. Even on main roads they are usually very washed out.

Similar in English. 'Serpent' is a snake, while 'serpentine' is a hairpin turn. I think the word 'serpentine' even derives from 'serpent', given that serpents (snakes) are long and winding.

Does it mean prices will go up? If so, then I should hurry if I want to visit Ljubljana this week

By the way,which exit is the best to reach city center when coming from Trieste, so via A2?

prices won't change.

^ It's called Ljubljana-center, but then you find out you can't park anywhere. Therefore I'd leave the motorway at the first exit on the southern bypass - Ljubljana-zahod (west) - and park in front of the parliament; either outside or underground.
