What are the plans to close the 7 km gap of the A2 near Radovljica?

Plans were fulfilled in September.

However a 2,4 km long gap is still to be filled until middle of 2010. One half is already finished and second half is going into reconstruction (constructing or reconstructing three new viaducts and reprofiling-widening 270 m long tunnel). The largest viaduct will be only reconstructed and sadly not torn down and built completely new, although it is already 40 years old.

Cycling. I also used to cycle on motorways U/C, but sadly (or luckily) there's no motorway to construct here any more.

Obviously
In the Netherlands that's strictly forbidden. I did it twice on the A2 between Vinkeveen and Breukelen, just to get to school faster. The second time I was send away by some very angry guy who threatened to call the police

I think it's forbidden everywhere. The most frustrating thing is when you reach a tunnel.

That's a problem over here. It's so incredibly mountainous, you wouldn't believe it

How long is this section between Maribor and Ptuj? And when will be operational? Is it part of Maribor bypass?

The section is as long as the distance between the towns. Seriously, it's 19.85 km long, not part of the Maribor bypass and will be operational next year (as well as the MB bypass). Here's its path:

If you go from Sentilj to Ptuj will there be a motorway all the way?
Or there will be missing that part from Pesnica roundabout?

That part around Maribor should be opened even sooner, in March or April 2009. A4 till Ptuj should be opened until next summer.

Who knows.

Officially it should be finished until end of 2011. But I wouldn't bet on that, because it will be relatively expensive project, and pay-off is not pretty high.

Actually yes, because it serves to local traffic of Ptuj area. Maribor-Ptuj has double amount of traffic than Ptuj - CRO border (18.500 AADT against 8600). Alomost 20.000 vehicles daily certainly deserve motorway.
