Maribor-Ptuj in 2 months.

From Ptuj-Macelj sometimes in the future as this part does not have a lot of traffic and design speed of the existing road is already 120 km/h and it doesn't go through any village.

Speed limit is 90 km/h. I was talking about design speed which is 120 km/h. It was built as half-motorway. Road will also be used as future half of the motorway when Slovenia will decide to finish A4.

It's straight enough to be part of a motorway in the future.

It is not really narrow. It is 3,25 meters per lane. I had two experiences going 3 cars parallel on that road because some people didn't finish overtaking on time.

It can be full profile motorway, but it isn´t it is normal highway and no some super motorway so there is need for motorway and not like someone here wanted to represent it isn´t.

Non-motor vehicles aren't even allowed on the road, AFAIK they aren't even allowed to cross it any more. And yes, it's gonna be half of the future motorway, we've already said that, so I guess it's straight enough. Anyone can look in GE how (un)straight it is. The pavement is fine too.

ok, so let's see, quote, an expressway which has 120 km/h standards and is enough to carry traffic on second most important route from Slovenia to Croatia, end quote.

it looks really good, right? you can overpass lorries, asphalt is good. oh no, wait, there is 60 km/h limit. who will you opverpass? bicycle?


ok, there cannot be 60 km/h limit all the way. so here you have a chance to overpass slow vehicles here. of course, if you have money for new suspension after crossing middle of thge road.


not to see only bad things, here is one of the best parts. you are not destroying anything on your car, you can do 90 km/h, you cannot overpass, so you have no choice. does it look like important road's asphalt? not really.


this intersection is good and generous. it allows even 70 km/h. one of the rare.


90 km/h, allowed overpassing (although impossible because of oncoming traffic, which is extremely low according to Slovenes), what a luxury!


finally a chance to overpass this austrian Golf. no oncoming traffic, allowed overpassing, ok condition of the road, but no, 60 km/h again stops me to do it.


somehow i maneged to do it. i definitely wouldn't do it here. guess why.


shiny and fantastic. enough for people who wnats to go to Croatia. they don't need more.


what a lovely pedestrian crossing on so-called expressway. at least pedestrians cannot brake a leg on potholes seen previously.


random one


again random one. large part of that road is under 60 km/h. just get used to it while you're there.


after this one man really cannot wait first gas station to buy damned vignette for lots of € to forget this torture. if the main road looks like this, how are local roads?!


a little bit of wheel tracks.


and one more nicely lifted bridge with waves.


again one with no complains. except 60 km/h.


and a dirty one for the end. this part will be bypassed with motorway next year (or even this?). so if you won't want to buy a vignette, this will wait you. and ongoing days - you still have no alternative in expensive motorway - you must use this.

There is enough to complain here: The speedsign is put right before the roadsign, so it is difficult to read it.

Really funny with you two. But X-type, the exorbitant prices for Croatian vigniette are not much better. If you had one week vigniette 10 €, then you would have the right to complain, but 20 € for one time passing is way too much.
