In 2007, everything, that was opened, was 3 km of one half of A2 motorway toward Jesenice and Austria; has 3 quite tall viaducts and one short tunnel. Old half will be reconstructed (read: new construction) up to summer 2009. Some pictures right before opening in November 2007.














Sadly, last remaining 380 m long tunnel on A2 on Ljubljana-Zagreb part won't have hard shoulder. Because some experts said, that it doesn't pay itself.

Have you noticed that they put the end-of-expressway sign at the beginning of this short section and the beginning-of-motorway sign, when in fact just one half is opened?

^ Yes, it's still exactly like in the photos (and will be until 2009). So this year the Ljubljana-Villach motorway should be finished, except for this short section (and Karavanke tunnel).

Very good pics, Keber, the stretch looks superb, except that the markings don´t seem very thick, bulgarian national road and motorway markings are so thck that they can be felt while driving. But taht´s jsut a small detail, otherwise it looks very good.

We don't use relief markings on our motorways, only on few dangerous sections of some important main roads. Of course, they should use them everywhere, because markings are much more visible in rain at night, but our beloved motorway company doesn't seem to acknowledge this as noteworthy.

Construction has started on last 15 km of A2 between Ljubljana and Zagreb between Trebnje and Novo mesto. It goes over quite hilly area and it will cost about 185 mil. € (12,3 mil € per km). Pictures from today shows west portal of 380 m long tunnel, whose boring started few days ago. Elsewhere much is still not happening, but mechanization is ready and trees are mostly cut.

Motorway goes up to 70 meters above current expressway (shown a bit in first picture) in the valley. Trebnje will have two exists instead of current one. One of exits will also connect future expressway in direction to Celje (far future) with motorway.

Yes. I'll take some photos, when all trees on projected motorway will be cut down, maybe next week. On that hill there will be even reststop, however not on spot with splendid view.

About old crumbling castle: it is rumored, that renovation could take place already next year.

Say hello to motorway sticker!

It's official - Slovenia is getting motorway sticker (vignette)!

The Slovenian government adopted today a resolution about introducing sticker for Slovenian motorways and expressways. We'll start using it on the 1st July 2008. They will only be used by cars and motor bikes, whereas trucks will continue to be charged at toll booths.

There will only be two types of stickers:
- yearly/annual (1.1.-31.12), which will cost 55 € for cars and 27.5 € for motor bikes
- half-yearly (half year from the date of purchase), which will cost 35 €

Toll booths won't be demolished yet.

Links in Slovenian:

http://www.delo.si/index.php?sv_path=41,35,280323
http://www.dnevnik.si/novice/slovenija/306789/



So what do you think? I think it's great for Slovenians (just 55 €), but very bad for most foreigners.

That stinks. Way too expensive for driving like 2 hours through the country. I hope there will be some kind of transit-vignette, or a week vignette.

Chris, I absolutely agree with you! Especially cause there are many section which are not constructed yet! For someone between Graz and Zagreb it's way too expensive. Or for someone from Austria going to Bled or from Italy to Postojna cave, for example...

No, just half-yearly for 35 euros. It's very expensive for someone just crossing the country once (or let's add a return journey), especially between Graz and Zagreb, and I'm afraid the (crappy) expressway through Maribor will also be charged (as it is now at the toll booth Pesnica), so you'd have to go through the city, even in rush hours.

€ 35 is way overpriced for tourists. It's like taking advantage of the tourists, it's even more expensive than the Swiss yearly vignette (€ 25), and Slovenia is also smaller than Switzerland. Besides that, the Swiss vignette makes more sense, because the number of tunnels and bridges is much larger than in Slovenia.

This doesn't feel good. Maybe it affects the tourism industry. No offense, but the Slovenian road network is not worth the price of € 35.
