In the coming days up to and including Sunday, 20 March 2016, a greater increase in traffic is expected on the Gorenjska motorway A2 due to the FIS Ski Jumping World Cup in Planica. Traffic congestion is also expected on routes between Jesenice and Podkoren, on the Korensko sedlo and Rateče crossings and in the area of the event, which will be subject to special traffic arrangements.

The PIC website publishes live the current travel time to Planica.

On Saturday, 19 March, holidays starts in Croatia, Austria and certain parts of Germany.


On Saturday and Sunday morning (19 and 20 March), buses and multi-purpose vehicles that are headed to Planica will be subject to special traffic arrangements on the A2 motorway section between Lipce connection  and the platform in front of the Karavanke tunnel, where inspection of tickets is organised. In addition to variable message signs, police officers will direct the traffic in the area of the Jesenice - East (Lipce) and Jesenice - West (Hrušica) exit points.

Buses and multi-purpose vehicles will have to drive along the motorway, all the way to the platform in front of the Karavanke tunnel, where organisers will check/sell tickets for the event and redirect them back towards Ljubljana from the platform along the A2 motorway to the first exit point Jesenice - West (Hrušica) and along the regional road towards Planica; vehicles with passengers who are without tickets will have to continue the drive in the direction of Ljubljana.         

Freight traffic headed through the Karavanke tunnel towards Austria will be re-routed from the usual route passed the platform towards the Hrušica (Austria) toll station. Re-routed freight traffic will be carried out on Friday night (17/18 March) and will last until Sunday afternoon (20 March).



On Monday, 21 March, between 9 a.m. to 2 p.m., traffic through the three-band tunnel Golovec on the eastern ring road in the direction of Malence - Bizovik (towards Štajerska region) will run only along one lane; the same traffic arrangements will take place in the second tube (towards the Dolenjska region) on Tuesday, 22 March, between 9 a.m. and 2 p.m.


Next week, renewal works (patching) will be carried out on the A1 (between Kozina and Razdrto, in the motorway service areas Ravne and Čebulovice) and A3 (in the area of the border crossing Fernetiči and toll station Dane) and will typically require a short-term closure of one lane. All detailed information on closures due to the renewal works will be available via the Traffic Information Centre (
