Expected construction works and road closures

We are issuing a warning to drivers to drive carefully around the toll stations because there may be occasional traffic congestion due to changed signalisation. Construction works are currently being carried out at the Log, Postojna and Torovo toll stations.

A1, Ljubljana bypass

At the Malence split from the eastern to the southern Ljubljana bypass there will be traffic congestion in the emergency lane until approx. 13 July 2018 due to construction works.

Measures to increase traffic flow and improve traffic safety at the Malence split on the Ljubljana ring road (the crossroads between the eastern and southern Ljubljana bypass); in June, the extension of the embankment, while the main works on the split are expected to be between 10 July and 18 August 2018.

A2, Karavanke - Obrežje 

On Sunday, 17 June 2018, the existing partial closure on the A2 motorway was reorganized as part of the continuation (completion of Phase 2 and the start of Phase 3) of works in connection with the demolition of the Torovo TS and the restoration of the carriageway between the  Torovo TS and the Vodice junction.

Due to works in phase 3, stage 1, there will be partial closures on the following sections:

  • Section number 0009 Brnik - Vodice from km 3.261 to km 5.246;
  • Section number 0609 Brnik - Vodice from km 3.461 to km 5.254;
  • Section number 0010 Vodice – LJ (Šmartno) from km 0.000 to km 0.473;
  • Section number 0610 Vodice – LJ (Šmartno) from km 0.000 to km 0.747.


Due to works in phase 3, stage 2, there will be partial closures on the following sections:

  • Section number 0009 Brnik - Vodice from km 3.261 to km 4.211;
  • Section number 0609 Brnik - Vodice from km 3.461 to km 4.411.

During the period of temporary traffic signalization, traffic will run on two narrowed lanes in both directions. Temporary traffic signalization will be set up on 22 July 2018.

A5, Lenart - Sv.Trojica

At the location of the Lormanje rest area (AC-A5, Lenart - Sv.Trojica), the entry point to the rest area will be closed from Saturday, 23 June 2018 from 13:00 to Sunday 24 June 2018 until 22.00.

The exit point from the rest area will be closed on Sunday, 24 June 2018, from 8:00 to 22:00, when the entire closure is to be removed. This will enable those who remain at the rest area on Saturday night to leave.

We would also like to draw attention to a number of works on some major and regional roads, as well as numerous events that will further slow the traffic (running, cycling, summer city and regional events).

Urgent rehabilitation of the »Zala« slope, above the road G2-102 at the road section – 1034 Spodnja Idrija – Godovič, will be carried out from km 8,460 to km 8,595 and from km 6,500 to km 6,950.

Certain construction works will require a common full road closure at both locations. The full closure is expected to be from 23.07.2018 to 20.08.2018, more info

Major renovation work envisioned by the end of August

On the A1 Unec-Postojna Primorska motorway section, the rehabilitation of the Ravbarkomanda viaduct is in progress (a facility in the direction of Ljubljana, the current closure is due to end in mid-September).

On the H4 Vipava-Ajdovščina-Selo highway section, 7.7 km of road is being reconstructed, in the direction of both Vrtojba and Razdrto, totalling 15.4 km of carriageway. Currently, the traffic on the Vipava highway between Selo and Vipava is being run in both directions on one half of the highway, one lane for each direction.

Ajdovščina junction is open; the complete closure of the junction in the direction of Ljubljana is planned in mid-July.

Demolition of toll stations

Stage 1 covers: emolition and reorganization of the Log, Torovo, Hrušica and Vrhnika toll stations, including the plateau and renovation of the carriageway on section A2 / 0009 Brnik–Vodice from km 4.041 to km 5.246 and A2 / 0010 Vodice–Ljubljana (Šmartno) from km 0.000 to km 0.267 and A2 / 0109 Vodice junction. Contractor: Gorenjska gradbena družba GDD in cooperation with Kolektor CPG and CPK for EUR 10.470 million excl. VAT.

Stage 3 covers: Demolition and reorganization of the Nanos, Dane, Logatec, Unec - north, Unec - south, Razdrto - north, Razdrto - south, Postojna - north and Postojna - south toll stations, as well as the renovation of the carriageway construction of the highway H4 / 0374 and 0774 Razdrto–Vipava from km 0.000 to km 0.075, A1 / 0154 Nanos split and A1 / 0151 Logatec junction. Contractor Kolektor CPG in cooperation with CPK for EUR 7.998 million.

Works at the Log toll station on the A1 Primorska motorway are underway. The contractual deadline for the execution of all works at the Log toll station is by the end of July, when all the barriers must be removed from the carriageway. Furthermore, in the area of today's toll station administrative building, a plateau will be regulated to allow the further use of this area, which will take 55 days (until the end of September) but will not significantly affect traffic fluidity. Therefore, the works at the toll station - including the new plateau in the catchment area - are expected to be completed by the end of September.

The works on the Torovo toll station on the A2 Gorenjska motorway are in progress and are expected to be completed by the end of July.

At the Unec toll station, preparatory work is expected to begin on 2 July; full closure, which will last for seven days, is scheduled for 7 July.  

The start of preparatory work at the Nanos toll station is scheduled for 3 September; full closure, which will last 30 days, is scheduled for 12 September.

Works at the Logatec toll station on the A1 Primorska motorway, including the renovation of the carriageway on the junction to the industrial zone, are scheduled between 16 July and 3 August 2018.

At the Vrhnika toll station on the A1 Primorska motorway, including the plateau, works will take place between 6 August and 25 August 2018.
