Wait, is that big roundabout over Italian RA17/A34 by Gorizia now two-way? Does traffic flow in both directions? It doesn't look so on the pics, but it does in GE. There're also two small roundabouts in this big roundabout now?

Google isn't new with those easter eggs. Some time ago if you translated Genova in English you got January. And everybody know some long swims or kayak rides across whole oceans.

I don't know if they are easter eggs. I encounter them too frequently for that.

You're probably right. What about the little roundabouts, do they still exist? As I said, if the big roundabout is one-way, they don't make sense.

It has elapsed 40 years since opening of first Slovenian motorway, Vrhnika-Postojna, today part of A1.

Some archival footage from early 1970ies:
http://tvslo.si/predvajaj/40-let-prv...va2.153544999/
(you can see from the video that some signage introduced at that time is still valid)

At that time Slovenia started to build motorways without confirmation from central Yugoslav government in Belgrade so this "rebellion" was squashed and first liberal premier minister of Slovenia was removed from power and consequently motorway construction slowed a lot (almost stopped) until about 1994.
