Why do people make such shaky videos?

It doesn´t look like a just opened motorway, he asphalt and markings on a just opened motorways look different, the asphalt looks fresh almost like a paste and the markings look very white and reflective.

That's b/c it was more or less finished already half a year ago, but was only opened now. But at least crash barriers are shiny.

^ I didn't even know trolleys had ever run in Ljubljana, I only knew about trams, but anyway, they were both eliminated a long time ago. Hopefully we get tram back, although this would mean some two-decade chaos.

And of course you like the pics, there's a sign with Rijeka. It's an interesting observation, now you won't see signs with Rijeka and Jesenice in the city-center, and Zagreb is slowly disappearing too. Instead of Rijeka now it's just Koper (although it used to be Postojna in the meantime) and instead of Jesenice it's Kranj. In the last years they started to replace Zagreb with Novo mesto, which is a completely political decision, as Zagreb is some 35 times larger than Novo mesto. But anyway, we have now countries written instead. In my 25 years I have really never seen signs for Rijeka and Jesenice in the downtown.

You went into another extreme: instead of "Trst" your new signs (on highways mostly) only show "Trieste". Ljubljana isn't affected.

actually, it is so warm that i don't think properly and i'm messing the things. so, the truth: all city names in Croatia at direction signs are written in original form. so, it is never Budimpešta, but Budapest. same, it is not Trst, but Trieste. but in bilingual areas there appear double signs for croatian places: Vodnjan/Dignano, Rovinj/Rovigno etc. now i'm not sure if Trst appears at somw new signs. correct me if it does.

Tudi tu bo enkrat avtocesta... kmalu

Ponovno razcep Dragučova in promet na treh nivojih:





In izhod... Ravno je smer Avstrija.

where the hell is Pernica?! you're again attacking with 500 inhabitants places
and i haven't noticed earlier new shaped arrows at your signs, are they new, or you use them since white background too?

and yes, A5 looks cute. i especially like this beginning of the video clip where 2 way access road has grass in the middle, it's incredibly cute

What is up with those distance signs? Why do they sign places nobody heard of. In my opinion, three destinations could do the job. It looks like they want to sign all upcoming exits.

Why the hell was your post marked as read?! Anyway, Pernica (don't mistake it for Pesnica ) is the biggest village by that exit, so the exit is called after it, and we always show the next exit on distance signs. It's not that small really; imagine all of them beating you at once!

You're now the second uninformed Croat (after snupix). We've had them for more than a year. Remember this report?

Err, you must be joking, right? It must be the cheapest motorway you've ever seen. And M25 (if you mean the London Orbital) has eight lanes and hard shoulders.

That's b/c the old road had (and still has) just two lanes and too many trucks for a 2-lane road, otherwise it's nothing special. But sth tells me you're in a wrong thread.

Slovenia is so small that we all know them. Even I know all those villages up there, even if 200 km away, and I suppose someone from the seaside (350 km away) too.

Ok, let's analyze it: Pernica is the next exit. Lenart is the first (small) town. Gornja Radgona is the first town bigger than Lenart and actually motorway won't reach it, so it's kinda in another direction. Murska Sobota is the capital of Prekmurje and the biggest town until the border (almost 15,000 inhabitants ). It also used to be the capital of the Mura Republic. Lendava is smaller than MS, but looks like a better control town, especially if you'll go to Lenti instead of Budapest when the motorway is finished. It's also by the border (sth like signing Brest in Moscow in times of Soviet Union, even though Minsk is bigger and closer). And Budapest has as many inhabitants as the whole Slovenia.
