do H4 doesn't head to Nova Gorica only, but now you have Udine and something more (Ajdovščina maybe?) on it.

(btw, why is Novo mesto, but Nova Gorica?)
This is an old sign, as new ones have Trst/Trieste and not just Trst.

For me it`s curious/bizzarne that e.g Trst or Gorica belongs to Italy.

Anyway today I had a quite scary drive experience on A1 between Lukovica and Ljubjana, very heavy rain and suddendly visibility was way less than 50m.
I know you guys don't wanna hear about this, but rainy countries should seriously consider draining asphalt. I know it has some mantenaince issues when it is freezing cold, but it is a game changer when it comes to safety during rainy days. Today it was really scary. The rain came suddendly and i could not see the car which was 50 m in front of me, i had to slow down to 50km/h and switch the flashing lights on, hoping no one from behind would crash me...

Slovenia promotes adrenalin tourism.

If it rained cats and dogs, even the best drainage system would not be enough. By the way Slovenian highways are pretty good but it also depends to a big extent on the tyres for the stability in such conditions.

I disagree. I had a similar experience on German motorways, everybody stopped in the middle of the Autobahn because you couldn't see anything. It never happened to me in Italy, even under very strong rain.

Same in the Netherlands, where they use drainage asphalt everywhere. You can still drive 130 km/h even during heavy rain, because there is almost no spray.

The worst is concrete, a while ago I was driving from Cloppenburg to Bremen, which is a concrete Autobahn and the rain wasn't even that bad, but there was almost no visibility due to the heavy spray, and the speed went down to 60 km/h.

Sure if there is no visibility at all, everybody will naturally try to stop and wait until the heaviest part of the storm is over but the whole column within the spot should do that simultaneously. At the same time other vehicles coming from behind can be found themselves in much lighter rain so they are jumping with some speed on the cars in front and provided there are no information boards to let them know about the situation, it could get worse.

actually it happened to me 2 years ago somewhere around Palmanova. the rain was so strong that i drove 40 km/h halof on emergency lane with emergency lights on, together with many others. however, it lasted for some 5 minutes maybe.

Good news regarding the e-tolling tender! The appeals have been rejected by the National Review Commission and Q-Free and Telekom Slovenije will be awarded with the contract. This is the closest Dars has ever been to actually implementing electronic tolling for heavy vehicles, all the previous tenders have failed.

Do you mean e-vignettes? There's nothing new regarding that, it's not part of this project and there are no plans for that currently, at least not officially.

Oh boy, what an accident on the G1-9 road by the border crossing Gruškovje. A car with five Dutch Bosnians was waiting in a queue to enter Croatia when a truck full of soil fell on it from a dirt road beside and 2-3 meters above G1-9. One woman has an injured leg and the other four were very lucky they weren't injured. The truck is owned by the Bosnian company Euro-Asfalt building the A4 motorway, and the dirt road was wet due to a lot of rain, so a landslide occured.

Be careful on your way to Croatia!
