100-120 km/h as a maximum speed, not a constant speed of course.

I have driven there personally are there are different straight parts of the road you can reach that speed.

In Europe speed limit are usually just inside-outside village, so 90-50-90. In Slovenia this kind of road would have a general speed limit of 90 km/h.

The construction of the highway is not finished yet. They have opened it because the old road is more dangerous.

... and not only that. The lateral land barriers need some enforcement. I also think it will be done when construction of the highway will be finished.
