For the cubs it was said they probably simply climbed over the fence, while the mother probably used the nearby entrance/exit ramp.

First section (Ptuj - Podlehnik, about 7 km) should be opened next month, official deadline is November, but beacuse second carriageway is almost completed, traffic will be rerouted shortly (September) on second one to finish first one (sound barriers, etc.) so there is not much work left.

Second section (Podlehnik to border, about 5,5 km) is less advanced, first carriageway will be opened till the end of the year (some sources claims that it will open partially in September 2017 but this seems unrealistic), and after that they need to build second one in place of current main road, contractor claims that whole section will be finished before summer 2018, but official deadline is end of 2018.

So when is the section from Draženci to CRO border expected to be complete as a full motorway?

Thank you for the update. Will the main road, the 'magistrala' will still remain, as a non-toll option?

Yes and no. They are building new parallel road for locals beacuse new A4 is being built mostly on corridor of old main road. But border crossing Gruškovje will be A4 only.

It seems it is going to stay that way until Croatia joins Schengen. I wonder if the last section before the border will be vignette-free, probably not. It will be the only border crossing without a nearby toll-free alternative.

Other than a motorway (or half) in South Eastern Slovenia to connect to the Rijeka motorway in CRO, what other major motorways are left to build in SLO? Seems to me that Slovenia is close to completing it's motorway network.

Are you sure about this? The plans I've seen show an exit at Gruškovje from the local road, and it would be complete insanity to require a vignette for those wanting to go (legally) from the villages of Gruškovje to Macelj.

From what I remember, there's an exit almost straight after the border crossing - before the vignette sales point. You can exit there to the village of Gruškovje, so in practice, it doesn't seem as if they will force the purchase of vignettes there.

But then again, this is Slovenia, who seem to specialise in forcing people into buying vignettes.

That one will be blocked by boom gate because it does not fulfill standards, all signs will be removed. First exit named Zakl is actually located about 3 km from border crossing.

Everything mentioned could be solved very quickly. Old road is still in place, divided from border crossing on future A4 and will be conected to new parallel road but is currently closed. They just need to reach an agreement with Croatia to use their old border crossing which is still in place and reopen it on "one stop control" basis.
