I got this on mail today. This happened somewhere on highway in Slovenia. As I was told, guys needed a bit under 15 minutes for 3-4km drive. It happened around 1 pm, and the temperatures were over 30 degrees.

Alpine's work is almost completely finished, so bankruptcy is not a big problem. The tender for electrical equipment is now out and until it is finished there will not be much movement there.

What's the official classification of the southern part of the LJ ringroad? Google says A1, Openstreetmaps A2 and Wikipedia says both.
I'm sure it was discussed before in this thread but I don't have time to browse 237 pages.

distance sign near Ljubljana-jug exit says A1 E61 E70. I think it's A1 and A2 at the same time.

Officially A1, de facto both (and E70, but not E61).

A2 was not signed when I was in Slovenia in 2009:

It was planned in early 1990ies as an alternative to current A5. A new main road (2 lanes) is planned, mostly grade-separated. Completed are south bypass of Ptuj and north bypass of Ormož, nothing else. A construction west of Ormož began about three years ago (Google Maps satelite view, but works have stopped pretty soon and currently there are no news about continuing them. New road will go more to the south, parallel to existing hydroplant canal.

There are currently works on deviating main road east of Ormož over existing railway to make better connection to Čakovci, however this is part of a program of railway modernization.

thanks.

Have there ever been talks about renumbering the G-road network (glavne ceste)? Some first class glavne ceste are unimportant such as G8, while the two longest main roads are from the second class routes (G102 and G106).

I suppose they could be adopted into a single network numbered G1 - G20.

It's also interesting to note that there are no G-roads in northeastern Slovenia. G109 is a very short route near Lendava and G2 projects east from Ptuj, but beyond that there is only A5. Have there been G-routes in that area before? I think A5 may have replaced a former route.

I would say the project extends from its local environment, because it's part of the bigger project together with the croatian part. Croatia plans to build similar type of road (1+1 expressway, grade separated) from the border near Ormož up to Varaždin. First stage (Varaždin southern bypass-D2) is already completed up to A4 motorway and it's an acces road for Varaždin city, but also an bypass of many villages near the town. So when we look at that road project, I think it is of bigger (than only local) significance because it connects Čakovec, Varaždin, Ormož, Ptuj and Maribor

A5 replaced G1-3 and A4 replaced part of G1-1. G1-2 is also Ptuj-Slovenska Bistrica, and Ptuj-Gruškovje (HR) is G1-9.

Sadly no. Numbering of non-motorway road network is made quite bureaucratic and was designed about 15 years ago. We have 5 classes of national road network, but as we now have quite extensive motorway and expressway network, not more than two classes would be needed - main and secondary road (glavna and regionalna cesta)

Some news portals here suggest that governments plans increasing vignette price. Price increase of about 15 % is expected. Truck toll prices should increase too. More should be known in the evening.
