Traffic problems due to snow are expected at least in the middle of te week. We advise drivers to carefully monitor weather forecasts and check the traffic information before setting off.

Due to Mardi Gras events, roadblocks and road closures are expected until Ash Wednesday, 14 February.

Expected construction works

Primorska

In the area MMP Vrtojba, the driving lane is closed due to the cave-in of a concrete road surface.

After snowing has stopped, the maintenance services will carry out their winter tasks and remove ice dams and snow from overpasses. Therefore, we ask drivers to be patient.

According to ARSO, Wednesday will be cloudy with precipitation. There will be snow in central Slovenia and rain in the lower parts of Primorska. Thursday will be cloudy, there will be slight snowfall in the south and east in the morning. Friday will be mostly cloudy and dry. It will remain cold. Further precipitations are possible on Monday afternoon. It is expected that there will be snowfalls in the lowlands. Precipitations are still possible on Thursday, a dry weather is expected for Wednesday and partly Thursday, the probability of precipitations will again increase towards the end of the week.

Events

Due to Mardi Gras events, traffic will be disrupted in several places, roadblocks are expected in certain places. The larger portion of events will be organised at the end of the week, some even by Wednesday, 14 February.

Larger events: Ptuj, Majšperk, Cerknica, Cerkno, Mežica, Ravne na Koroškem, Bovec, Ilirska Bistrica, Ig, Litija, Begunje, Tržič, in some parts of Prekmurje and Istra.  

The European championship in futsal will take place by 10 February at the Stožice stadium.

Prevention

We advise drivers to follow traffic notifications and set off on time or somewhat earlier; while postponing unnecessary drives in the case of heavy snowfall. Slower traffic must be taken into consideration, especially during the morning and afternoon rush hours. “Do not leave home without adequate winter equipment!”

Avalanches are possible in higher areas. We are also warning drivers about the possibility of mandatory snow chains on mountain passes.

During the week of warning for the safety of pedestrians, we are joining in the support for this initiative by warning drivers that they are not safe when they stop in the emergency lane. If you need to stop in the emergency lane, ensure you are safe.
