Is it worth it to take the M0 now and not fear huge traffic jams because of daily accidents? I am planning to drive home end of October for a small vacation.

M0 is getting better and better. On the direction M1 -> M5 is almost entirely with 3 lanes, and the new connection between M0-south and M0-north looks almost completed (might be opened before you come). I would drive on M0 instead the city.

No one can promise you that there will not be a serious accident in the very hour you will drive there. However, from next week on I would take M0.

Will there be some new opening/widening/etc. next week on M0?

Thanks!
Of course no one can, I was making an analogy with the situation from 1-2 years ago

The situation is much better compared to what it used to be few years ago.

I said that direction M1 -> M5 is almost entirely with 3 lanes.

The other direction (M5 -> M1) is, as you can see from the pictures I posted above, still with 2 lanes on most of it's length, because there are works undergoing on the middle part of it. But this too should be completed soon.

Bogdymol is right again!

Three additional info:

1, The completely new section between Main road 51 and M5 scheduled to be opened this weekend.

2, The complete reconstruction of the old M0 lanes (and two bridges) will start some time in the near future (it's tendered already, no winner announced yet though), with the switch to concrete upper layer. It's going to be a 28 months procedure...

3, The widenning of the short so far untouched section to 1+3+3+1 between M7-M1 is being also tendered.

Excelent news There was always a little bit of congestion while comming from M0 and trying to enter M5. Now it will be congestion-free

Not so good news. I was hoping to be a quick re-paving of the old M0 lanes.

It will last so long due to the Danube bridge, the entire steel structure of the bridge needs to be replaced...

How will the traffic be affected on M0 by this changing of the entire steel structure of the bridge? How many lanes will remain open on each side during construction?

One can choose either to go to Ljubljana via Maribor (distance cca 240 kms) and drive 20 kms on this 1+1 "expw" and more 50 kms on 2+2 SLO A5 "motorway" (110 kmh speed limit without hard shoulders); or to go to Ljubljana via Zagreb (distance also 240 kms: 95 kms to Ivanja Reka, another 25 to Jankomir and than 120 to razcep Malence) and drive whole 240 kms on a full motorway. There are two Schengen borders (passenger controls only, smoothly in EU/EEA/CH line) and speed limit 110 kmh on a 10 kms stretch between Breznički Hum and Varaždin. Okay, there will be Croatian tolls.

Said that, I remember that I saw on Saturday two Romanian cars driving on Croatian A4 in direction Hungarian border after exOMV gas station Popovec.

of course... road condition is better that way, but even after Croatia joining Schengen, one would have to pay tolls and a vignette, instead of just a vignette for slovenian variant.

"Pericol de accidente" would be enough.

The difference is actually 15 km: this v. this.

I was surprised because it was a Saturday. If it was a Sunday I would have said that everyone is comming back from Balaton, but on a Saturday?

It's 15 km longer, you have to pay tolls and cross 2 borders where you are checked (I know it's just a simple ID check, but still). I think that the M70 - A5 route is the best one. Although A5 is lacking hard shoulders and it has a 110 km/h speed limit, it's actually one of the nicest highways I've been on. The landscape is very 'hilly' and with a lot of green, so it's a pleasent and relaxing drive.
