Hvala Keber!
Surely it's expensive, it's all tunnels and bridges, like the motorways we have in my region Liguria. But why did it take so long? It's about one year I pass through there quite often and it always looked almost finished... did they finish the money first?

Everything is pretty much finished, just electromechanical equipment is still missing in tunnels. Pathetic, I know.

This section was not so much of big priority as some other sections, also this section was plagued with big geological problems, because it is mostly build on enormous landslide, which is moving few centimetres a year. This caused to replan and realign few kilometers of expresway during actual construction. For about 30 years it will hold, then a massive reconstruction will probably be necessary. If they would build on other side of the valley those problems wouldn't exist, but that alignment was not compatible with wishes of nearby local comunities.

Phew, that's a lot shorter than most structural design lifespan of 60 - 100 years...

True. But actually no one knows, how long viaducts will hold. Maybe 50 years, maybe only 20. Geological conditions of an ancient landslide with depths of over 30 meters, filled with water, are very hard to predict.

Lol. OTOH H3 is already quite deteriorated. But now it isn't free of charge (vignette), so they don't have excuse any more.

Yes, but the motorways feel awesome, at some places you forget that you drive.

I see you drove through the new Šentvid tunnel in Ljubljana. Did you also like that fairly long cut-and-cover in the back of the first pic?

Ofcourse, that´s why I put that pic inside, the cut and cover looks really beautiful and just eyecatching. Big big respect to that.

We didn't buy a vignette for every car in my family. I always use this roundabout even without vignette. A roundabout can't be a part of a vignette system according to law so I don't care about mandatory vignette signs.

If someone stops you just tell them to read a law. Or if you are afraid or foreigner just stop on the road infront of a vignette sign and check around if there is a vignette control. They can be easily spotted.
