Yup, now I got it.
It's pronunciated a like "beach"... or something else in English.

"i" in Slovenian is pronounced in English like "ea" and not like "i" (yes it is a difference).

Yes, but the pronunciations of beach and b1tch are very similar.

Also the Austrian lake of Faaker has a funny pronunciation.

I think they rather have them crash in the emergency booth than bounce off the guardrail back into rolling traffic and cause even more damage and / or death.

On a side note, "bič" means "whip" in English.

Btw, both tubes of the Markovec tunnel (H6 Koper-Izola) are bored now! It will take about a year until they will be ready for traffic (electric equipment).

Polish road freaks! Looks like someone had to come from Poland to take pics of Slovenian H6. Great photos, hands down.

Surprising:
in Romanian we have 'bici' meaning "whip" in English and pronounced like "bitch"!

Is there a similar word in Serbo-Croatian?

It is also designed as such - as a mountain expressway.

As for H6 - I didn't know there are still land expropriation problems. And construction of last remaining part towards Portorož/Lucija is still few years away.

Do they really need two parallel expressways (H5 and H6)?
