i agree.

but the real problem is with simple two lane roundabouts (not turbo, with physical dividing of lanes) where most people don't dare to use the inside lane, and they get scared and confused when others use it. possibilities of accidents increase and the point of a multi-lane roundabout is lost

In this junction previously there was a traditional double lane roundabout. and, as you write it, the great majority of cars used the outside lane - even me, 'cause I knew, if I go to the inside one, I must go 10-15 rounds without having any chance for leaving the roundabout.

Guys from Polish SSC would think that such things with roundabouts happen in EU in Poland only

M0 yesterday, horrible, we lost one hour, driving with 5 km/h and then just standing still for half an hour. Some road works ... don't think I will use it again until construction is finished.

Just wandering I'm driving a bus from Slovenia to Budapest is there a way for me to avoid this road? I drive from SLO to Budapest at least once a month and we're always going back to SLO in the middle of the night and this narrow road always freaks me out when it suddenly becomes so narrow most of the time I think somebody is in my lane... (I think it's M70 the one that has working sites every 2km and gets narower)

No, you'll have to wait until after 2027 or avoid it through Croatia.

If you are coming to Budapest, you don't have to take this road, since this is the bypass of the city.

I wonder, if he's talking about a road close to Budapest (M0) or close to the border (M70).

@Verso the one close to SLO border, when it suddenly becomes narower every-so-often. The part that was on Slovenian news probably for a whole week during that trucking incident not long ago.

EDIT for @Verso: http://www.delo.si/novice/kronika/ma...-slovenec.html guessing it's M70 then

That section is only around 13 km and has only 2 junctions (grade separated) where the road is 2+2. Why do you complain?

When the road becomes from 2x2 to just two lanes I just always have the tought of the opposite driver (ussually a trucker ) to be on the wrong lane or something it's just really "creepy" to drive through there at night, during thr day I got no problems, but it's so badly marked and everything that like I said it's creepy at night.

Disagree.
I wouldn't call THIS as badly marked. (Pictures are clickable).
However, as someone (sorry, I can't find the name) posted here some weeks ago:

Widening is scheduled between 2027 and 2040 [sic].

What kind of a question is that? I also complain that there's still not a full motorway between Ljubljana and Karavanke Tunnel, and it's just 2.4 km missing.

Of course that a 2+2 motorway is better, but he was complaining too much... like M70 would be like a back road, ultra-congested, full of potholes and with an average speed of 30 km/h.

IMO M70 should have been built directly 2+2, but I woudn't complain that much. It's still at the highest standard for a normal 1+1 road.
