Nice! Can't wait for the A5 to be finished - interestingly enough, it won't have emergency lanes from Vučja vas all the way to Pince, don't know why. I guess the speed limit will be 100 km/h the whole way..

that's because it is not full profiled (no emergency lanes).
nice pics (instead of few, for instance your lion's but )

True, but Jesenice bypass is the same (without hard shoulders), and the speed limit is 130 km/h. The same thing is with the motorway by Nova Gorica, where 100 km/h is just the recommended speed, the speed limit is otherwise 130 km/h.

Indeed, and that motorway is actually the H4 expressway! Urgh, this is confusing..

It's the H4 MOTORWAY there, don't forget. The road number doesn't necessarily mean it's expressway.

H stands for hitra cesta so that isn't logical. Anyway I expect these irregularities to be taken care of soon..

I wouldn't like that to be changed, as it would only make it more confusing. I like an entire section to be designated the same, and as there's more expressway there than motorway, it's better to be H4, instead of A4 or whatever (well, A4 is already reserved). Besides, that motorway isn't all that top-notch (without hard shoulders, recommended speed limit 100 km/h). Although, I wouldn't like (for example) the whole Ljubljana - Jesenice road to be A2 (meaning also the 2-lane sections). I think the H4 is just a special case. It's nevertheless clear where motorway and where expressway there are.

Besides, stop complaining, or else they will turn the motorway into expressway! Seriously, I can't imagine the motorway and expressway there being designated differently.

Well, that's exactly why. (I don't think I understand your question though)

Oh, wait, I thought you were talking about the colour of the signs, hehe. No, the road number should definitely stay the same, the colours should be unified, and thus the speed limit!

To which color would that be? If into blue (expressway), then you wouldn't be allowed to drive 130 km/h on the current motorway any more. If into green (motorway), well, then, 130 km/h is maybe too much for that bora wind over there. :P Hey, even smilies in this post are green and blue!

(Maybe green (motorway) with a speed limit 100 km/h, like on the A5?)

Nah, I thought of blue. Currently it's 130 on the green stretch, but the recommended speed is 100 km/h. And besides, people dirve over 100 km/h on the whole stretch, even over 130 km/h..

I like green more, b/c you may drive 130 km/h. And if you exceed the allowed speed and caught on radar, you'll still be better off by speed limit 130 than 100 km/h.

Hehe, true! Anyway, we need more pix!

Oh and by the way, the amount of trucks in Pomurje is unbelievable! I knew it was a lot but never in my wildest dreams could I imagine it was THAT much! I'm wondering why they haven't assassinated somebody because of it yet! Anyway, won't be long now.. Next year, it'll all be over.

Well, since Verso hasn't bothered to post any new pix, in the meantime until he posts his, I'm posting mine. Mind you they're a bit old (up to two years old) so some stuff may have been changed. And excuse the lighting and dirty windshield, I couldn't do anything about the lighting, since it was on a long-distance trip, and the bugs.. Well, they were some nasty buggers sticking to the glass like that..

A1 Ljubljana - Koper:









A1/A2 Ljubljana Ringroad:



















A1 Ljubljana - Maribor:

















H4 Razdrto - Vrtojba (Nova Gorica)
