And more than ever, we need the EU to force through a unified system for e-tolling. There's a complete mess now with some countries using pretty painless systems (Poland/Slovakia), others using more complicated technology, and each country has different requirements.

I'm just thinking now about a Lithuanian company that gets a one-off order to deliver something in Vienna and then in Zagreb. They would need to get boxes for PL, CZ, A and SLO - each time having to stop and deposit cash at the border to get the box, then get it returned on the way home. That's six completely unnecessary stops, when it should be perfectly realistic for them to agree one contract with Poland's ViaToll and for it to be usable in all the other countries without any fuss.

Why not the UNECE? It's not like they aren't the main (global) body dealing with international agreements on transport.

I don't know, it doesn't look any wider to me.

That sentence doesn't make sense. It implies that they will widen the carriageway to allow four lanes of traffic per carriageway during roadworks, but while they were working on renovating the first carriageway, there already was a 2+2 lane regime on the other, unrenovated one. If they indeed performed any widening at all, it must have been minimal.

Well, renovation that includes a slight widening of the carriageway to operate a proper 4-0 system during future road works are not uncommon. They're doing that on D1 in Czechia too.

Germany has some problems with 4-0 systems, they include very narrow lanes with a lot of accidents and congestion with a 60 km/h speed limit. Dutch 4-0 systems usually allow 90 km/h and sometimes even 100 km/h.

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.
Only visibility is much better, road surface is still wet. In Italy they keep 110 km/h limit with pioggia.

Reconstruction A1, Šempeter-Arja vas(6,5km), expansion of emergency lane, upgrading carriageway, due to the annual increase of freight traffic.

On the other hand, Saturday next week I'll drive from Bled to Trieste airport, and as my flight departs late in the evening I've thought about going via the Vršič pass and the Soča valley instead of going via Ljubljana. I've read that the road is very scenic, so I hope it's worth the detour. Is the Vršič pass road challenging to drive?

Thanks!

Vrsic is not really challenging, there just a lot (and I mean a lot) of hairpin turns. But the road is in good condition and no real challenge with normal car. And it's not really a detour, you will only need longer. Go for it! It's worth the drive

The Vrsic Pass is a very scenic road, definitely worth the drive.

There are no worthwhile alternatives to the 111 between Piran and the Sečovlje border crossing, there's the 11 running from Koper to the border at Dragonja, which you could reach from Piran by local roads, but if there are queues on the 111, the 11 is probably very busy, too.

Very long delays were reported yesterday at the Karavanke Tunnel. Official reports talked about 2.5 hours waiting time, but a Dutch guy said it took him 4 hours and 15 minutes to get through the tunnel, also due to Austrian border checks.

Again a long traffic jam has occured on the A1 between Logatec and Vrhnika due to a traffic accident where one person died. I happened to drive there shortly after the accident happened. A truck drove off the road and burnt down. There was no police, firefighters or ambulance there yet (I saw them later near Ljubljana). Some people stopped, but I didn't, because I didn't wanna see dead people.

Yes, must have been really bad. I happened to be in Slovenia this afternoon and they were talking about a 17 km traffic jam after the accident. Also, heavy traffic was reported at Karavanke again - I guess they are taking the border control more seriously now on the Austrian side.

It was bad, but it could be even worse, because the truck crashed into a tanker truck, so you can imagine the eventual explosion. It could even damage the Ljubljana-Koper railway, which was very close. The road surface was filled with debris that we had to drive over.
