Why don't you give her the forum link? We want to thank her. She did a very good report out of these wonderful motorways.

I just told her Thank you from behalf of all forumers around here that like her pictures . She said You're welcome.

I would give her the forum link, but she is not interested at all in what's SSC all about. I guess most girls are not interested in this kind of boyz things.

... or maybe not. This is the first motorway exit I see in a tunnel:

Lj.-Šentvid is crossed out because after the exit ramp you can only go left on the main road out of the city, not right towards city centre (and Šentvid). I've no idea though why this is not done yet.

maybe Keber knows. I'm also interested in this... Will this interchange with Celovska cesta ever have all possible directions covered or not?

Direction toward center is not completed yet. I think money is an issue also because there is no great benefit of making it (at least not now).

A2 motorway - part 7

Let's continue our journey on the Slovenian A2 motorway, from the beautiful Bled to the interesting Karawanken Tunnel, the border between Slovenia and Austria.

Joining A2 motorway to Jesenice:



A2:



From now on the motorway dosen't comply with the standard since it lacks the hard shoulder:



But it has this every km or so:



A short tunnel:









The motorway feels quite narrow here:



Last exit before the tunnel and the border:



All the directions lead to Austria:

Slovenia / Austria border crossing at Karawanken Tunnel

Approaching the old border crossing:







The queue was at the toll booths:



A lot of caravans...



The toll was 6.50 € for my car.



After the toll booths:



Austria at 3500 m (at the middle of the tunnel):



Karawanken Tunnel - 7864 m:

Slovenia / Austria border crossing at Karawanken Tunnel

The pictures inside the tunnel are not that clear because there was not enough light...



There was some parking spaces for emergencies:







Very big vents for air circulation. When I was passing them I felt the car shaking:







Exiting the tunnel:





Next pictures on the Austrian thread

Ooo, thank youStill we all feel bad using you as a communication device

If you're not going to ask for money for the communication service you can tell her that we are expecting her next photo report.

I've told her that you are expecting her next photo report and she said that she will take pictures during our next road-trip. If you want it to be soon you can finance it

Interest thing about Karavanke tunnel is that it was open in June 1991, in the last days of Slovenia being part of Yugoslavia.

1st June to be precise. It would be interesting to know how it was financed, my guess would be Slovene budget (not federal), as at that time Slovenia wasn't paying customs and other taxes to Belgrade anymore.

Construction began already in 1986. I suppose the Yugoslav government paid their part.

I am not home right now but I think that on my YU map from 1981 the tunnel was already signed as under construction or as plan. I will check it when I arrive home.

The picture was taken exactly here. I guess there is now some sort of exit for those who missed the last official exit...

Even stamps were issued to commemorate opening of the tunnel:

I know, but believe me when I say that the picture is made there. When I will have time to process all the videos you will see this also on youtube
