Posted by Blog Author Monday, June 3, 2019 3:41:00 AM

On Friday and Saturday, traffic from Austria to Central Slovenia and down to the Primorska region and Croatia will be increased due to public holidays and the start of the holidays in Austria and part of Germany. Traffic in the opposite direction will be increased on Monday and Tuesday - Monday is a Pentecost Monday and a public holiday in Austria, Hungary, Germany and a major part of Switzerland.

On Tuesday we expect an increase in the number of goods vehicles, especially at border crossings with Austria.

We would also like to warn drivers about closures due to Marathon Franja.

Planned Works

A1, A5, Maribor - Ljubljana motorways, Maribor eastern bypass

Due to the demolition of the toll station and renovation of the road, the road closure between Vransko and Šentrupert is approx. 4 km long. Traffic runs in two narrowed lanes in both directions. The scheduled completion date of the works is in the second half of July.

A full road closure is expected until 7 June 2019 on the A1 motorway sections between Pesnica and Maribor (Ptujska) towards Ljubljana and on the A5 motorway section between Dragučova and Lenart towards Maribor, due to the restoration of a bridge over the Drava river, the Malečnik tunnel, the Vodole tunnel and the Vodole I-V viaduct. The traffic will run on two travel lanes on the other half of the motorway, one lane in each direction. In the opposite direction, the closure will be in effect between 11 and 19 June 2019.

Due to non-scheduled transport, part of the rest area at the location of Murska Sobota in the direction of Maribor will be temporarily closed until 12 June 2019. Motorway users will be unable to access the parking area for heavy goods vehicles. Fuel supply will be possible and a smaller platform next to the fuel station will be open for short breaks and accessible to all users.
