They're not regional in the sense that they're managed by regions, it just means that they have regional significance (as opposed to main roads, which have national significance, and local roads).

Exactly. Main roads have numbers x to 1xx, while regional roads are numbered 2xx to 9xx and both categories are managed by DRSI, the national infrastructure agency.

It's been 10 years since I created this thread.



Around 150 km of motorways and 4-lane expressways have been built since then.

Ministry of infrastructure has plans to limit general speed on motorways in vicinity of Ljubljana, Maribor, Kranj and Celje to 110 km/h in winter time, from 1.11. to 31.3.
Reason for this idiotic proposal is limiting pollution in those cities. Of course there are more effective solutions to that (like limits for old vehicles entering cities or removing smoking diesels from traffic) but politics are politics ...

Little more than 1/3 of Ljubljana ring is actually above 110 km/h at the moment

Is it even possible to maintain speeds above 110 on Ljubljana ring? There's a lot of exits and the traffic is dense, with big truck share.

^ It's possible in the overtaking lane, especially on the southern bypass.

Sections to Domžale, Grosuplje and Vrhnika would be affected too (this is not sure yet).
And almost straight section of A2 north and east of Kranj in a forest that does not have such dense traffic will be affected too.

Such things could divert people from using motorways. I mean, you cannot legally drive faster than 110 and you have to pay toll, while on other roads (highways/state roads/magistrale) you can drive 90 without paying toll and with lower fuel consumption.

In Croatia they have also lowered speed limit on large sections of A1 (in Lika) and A3 to 120 for no obvious reason and they decided to raise tolls. Now you can legally drive 130 only on A1 Zagreb-Bosiljevo and in Dalmatia, half of the length of A2 and A4, on A5 and most of A11. All others are set to 100-110.

Fuel consumption is a really bad argument for keeping 130 kph instead of 110.....

I agree. But many people think that way. Personally, I always choose driving on motorways because it's safer, faster and more comfortable. "Old" roads are on my itinerary when I'm alone and have some time to enjoy driving and scenery

The coastal road between Koper and Izola is now closed, and you don't need a vignette for H6 any more.

*between Koper-Semedela and Izola junctions. Well, effectively from Koper-Semedela to the current terminus in Izola.

Stop and go uphill may be very unpleasant.

It's probably not very good for the clutch, especially when towing a caravan.

Are there any concrete plans of a redevelopment of the old road resp. the coast, e.g. narrowing the road, making it a one-lane only, and dedicate the extra space to recreation areas, or something else? Or will it just stay like this?

Most modern cars now have driving assists and there is also an anutomatic transmission.

@coastal road: at first they will convert old road to road for intervention vehicles and wide bicycle path (old bicycle/pedestrian path by the sea will now be pedestrian only. Then slowly new developments will get constructed which are not yet finalized.
