Are there any plans to improve highway/railroad infrastructure through Slovenia? Since it connects eastern Europe to southern Europe, there should be straighter roads between Italy, Ljubjana and Hungary. Perhaps also high speed trains and transportation trains?

Obviously this would be a cross-country project with the surrounding countries gettign involved.

Straight line between Pince and Sežana is 230 km and over motorway is 305 km, about 30% more which is normal for mostly hilly terrain. Why would you straighten that? Billions of euros for 30 minutes less driving?

And motorways are in first phase build for domestic travels. There will be third lanes in future and few new expressways for connecting other regions, but nothing more.

I agree, I don't see the purpose of a duplicate motorway/railway, they are not a straight line in any country. As for high speed rail, there is not nearly enough demand for anything of the sort to be feasible until European intercountry population mobility increases to something more similar to US interstate levels or interregional levels in most European countries.

Our railways should definitely be faster though, but that's OT here.

Today they opened 3 km of A4 south of Ptuj, but only half, of course.

So I got to drive there last night. It's good to see progress. The speed limit of 50 km/h all the way is a little annoying though.

I also noticed that the entire section is progressing pretty well. I think that they will definitely make it by November 2017 - if the winter doesn't get nasty maybe even 1-2 months earlier.

No, only Ptuj-Podlehnik (7 km), the rest by the end of 2018.

It`s mean that the old carriageway will be close soon. It should be upgraded to "A" road status.

No, there were no controls. I don't think there were even signs for republics.

There are still just two temporary lanes with 50 km/h in continuous work zone.

New type of horizontal signalisation on regional roads that uses new signage rules:

Widened double line should help to prevent mostly motorcycle accidents. Dashed side line is new and (at least on our forum) it is still not known in which cases it is used. as full solid line can be used too.

Reminds me of french style. However, most roads are too narrow for that.

Maybe dashed edge lines means that is it allowed to stop?

City streets have short dashed lines for parking areas or cycle paths, that is nothing new. Above road has completely new style with long dashed lines.
@italystf: stopping is allowed on side niches only, on that road many drive pretty fast. It is former main road before Vrhnika-Postojna motorway was built in 1972.

That is very similar to the Netherlands. The double center line helps keeping opposing traffic flows further apart. Dutch driving lanes on 80 km/h roads are only 2.75 m wide.
