Increased traffic during Easter holiday

Wednesday, April 1, 2015 7:38:30 PM

An increase in traffic is expected on Slovenian roads this weekend due to the Easter holiday from Austria towards the border crossings with Croatia and from Italy to Hungary. The roads are expected to be at their busiest on Friday; in some European countries, the holiday starts a day early, so increased traffic can be expected on Thursday.
At border crossings with Croatia the biggest increase in traffic is expected on the Obrežje/Bregana, Gruškovje/Macelj and partially on the Sečovlje/Plovanija and Dragonja/Kaštel.
On Thursday and Friday, increased traffic is also possible on sections which are busiest during daily peak hours.
Drivers are advised to check the traffic situation on the website of the Traffic Information Centre www.promet.si or by phoning +386 1 518 8 518.
