From what I've read they fear that the traffic jam caused by the closure after the tunnel would 'roll back' into the tunnel.

They will shut A2 down from Jesenice to Ljubljana. Which means all traffic has to detour at Jesenice, the same exit Putin would be using to the pass.

That Lille to Trieste route reminds me of the one from Pozuel de Ariza to Undues de Lerda, two villages located in opposite extremes of Zaragoza province. The 250 km route only touches the province (and Aragon for that matter) at the start, the end and a brief section in the middle where N-113 dips into Aragon (unsigned in the field but recognized in the log). And as added bonus it includes an unpaved road just before reaching the destination.

Or Sombor-Herceg Novi? Serbia-Croatia-BiH-Montenegro. Serbia and Montenegro are neighbouring countries.

Which traffic? There will be no traffic, because all roads there will be closed (except the old road Ljubljana-Jesenice, but you won't be able to continue to Austria or Kranjska Gora).

Anyway, there's no special traffic, looks like Austrians scared the hell out of everyone. There was a 10-km queue on the Austrian side of the tunnel, now there's nothing and the tunnel isn't even closed yet. There was a 3-km queue on the Slovenian side at night, but it was all gone by 6 am.

Austria closed A11 at 9 a.m. at Knoten Villach, so that when the tunnel closes at 11 a.m. there isn't still a huge queue waiting.

I know, but from 10 km there was nothing left at 10 o'clock. A 10-km-long queue doesn't disappear in just 1 hour, so apparently people went on holidays very early.

The road was closed at Knoten Villach, there was literally no traffic able to get to the Karawankentunnel after 9AM, that's why the traffic jam solved so quickly.

German media have titles like "Mega-Stau on the Austrian A11". My first thought was: everyone going to Szczecin?

Well, it worked, because there was almost no congestion

Perhaps we'll see an increased amount of traffic tomorrow.

The Hungarian goverment created a law last year that no shop may open Sundays except for gas stations (similar like in Germany). Since March 2015 all shops were close Sundays in Hungary.
Several gas stations were transformed after that so that you can buy several goods there that have nothing to do with cars or driving. They are more expensive than normal shops but were open Sundays.
But this law was very unpopular and the government changed its mind, shops are open again. So now there are those transformed gas stations and no one buys there thos goods because shops are open and those gooed are cheaper in shops.

we had exactly the same situation. it lasted for year or two, now we again have shops that work on sundays. but gas stations don't sell vegetable oil and milk anymore fortunately

I would say that most petrol stations in the UK sell milk and a limited amount of food, quite a few are almost supermarkets.

Some mistakes on the new Google Maps:

Italy
*SS202 near Trieste is an expressway, but it's signed as motorway.
*"Autostrada Lacotisce-Rabuiese" is a motorway, but it's signed as expressway.
*RA3 Florence-Siena is classificated as motorway (despite very substandard for a motorway, opened in 1964), but it's signed as expressway (and it really looks like an expressway).
*SP46 north of Milan is not a motorway yet (upgrading works are ongoing, it will be A52), but it's already signed as such.
*Palermo bypass (Viale della Regione Siciliana) is just an urban boulevard (although now all junctions are fully grade-separated, but there are still two zebra crossings left), but it's signed as motorway.

Austria
*S10 north of Linz is a motorway (like other S roads in Austria), but it's signed as expressway.

Slovenia
*H5 (between A1 and H6) is an expressway, but it's signed as motorway.

Croatia
*A7 around Rijeka is an expressway, but it's signed as motorway.
*A9 Umag-Pula has two 2-lanes stretches, but it's fully signed as motorway.

Hungary
*M70 (near SLO border) is a 2-lanes expressway, but it's signed as motorway.
