Traffic forecast until 30 May 2019

Friday, May 24, 2019 4:14:00 AM

This weekend, we expect an increase of traffic due to tourists, namely on Friday and Saturday in the direction of tourist destinations, and on Saturday and Sunday afternoon in the opposite direction.

Traffic will increase significantly in the following week, especially on Wednesday, 29 May in the afternoon and evening hours, and on Thursday, 30 May due to national holidays and an extended weekend in Austria, in a major part of Germany, and part of Switzerland. The morning commute on Thursday, 30 May, will therefore take longer than usual. Traffic will be increased from Austria to Central Slovenia and further down to the Coastal region. Increased traffic is also expected at the border crossings with Croatia.

On Thursday afternoon, 30 May, and on Friday morning, 31 May, there will be a higher number of goods vehicles at the border crossings with Austria. 

Planned works

Due to the demolition of toll stations, several sections will have restricted traffic. More info at the link.

A1, Šentilj - Ljubljana motorway

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.

A1, Ljubljana - Koper motorway

On Thursday, 23 May, a full road closure is planned between 18:30 and 20:00 for 30 minutes at the Senožeče junction in both directions, due to the removal of the toll station roof. A diversion will run via Divača and Razdrto.

Due to the demolition of the Videž toll station, traffic via the Kozina junction runs in two narrowed lanes in each direction. Works are expected to run until the end of May 2019.

Construction works are taking place at the road section between Razdrto and Gabrko in both directions. Traffic runs in the fast lanes of 3.5 metres in width. No special transport of larger dimensions can be made. Such a traffic arrangement will be in place until the start of June.

The fast lane closure is expected at the road section of Semedela – Izola, before the Markovec tunnel in the direction of Izola and in the opposite direction from Izola in the direction of Koper. The road closure is necessary due to the reconstruction of the intervention middle lane through the carriageways, approx. until 27 May. Minor congestion is expected during peak hours.

A2, Ljubljana - Obrežje motorway

During the night of 23/24 May, the tunnels Mali vrh and Debeli hrib will be washed at the road section of Malence - Šmarje Sap in the direction of Lower Carniola, between 20:00 and 5:00. Traffic will run in one lane.  

Due to the construction of gantry foundations in the framework of the demolition of CP Dob, construction works are planned to take place until 30 June at the road section of Ivančna Gorica - Bič in both directions. Traffic will run in the travel and fast lanes during the road closure.

Due to the demolition of the Drnovo toll station and the reconstruction of the road between Dobruška vas and Brežice (in the length of approx. 8 km), traffic in both directions runs on the rightmost half. The Drnovo junction will be closed in both directions from 24 May to 14 June 2019.

The washing of tunnels and the gallery is expected in both directions:

  • on Tuesday, 28 May, on the section Bič - Trebnje vzhod, the Leščevje tunnel;
  • on Wednesday, 29 May, on the section Drnovo - Brežice, the Čatež gallery.

The travel lane will be closed, traffic will run on the fast lane and vice versa. The right side of the tunnel will be washed first (in the direction of Ljubljana - Obrežje), then the left. Works will be carried out between 7:00 and 15:00.

H4, Vipava expressway

A section of the expressway H4 between Vipava and the Nanos junction in the direction of Ljubljana and Koper will be closed from Saturday, 25 May 2019, from 7:00, to Sunday, 26 May 2019, until 20:00, due to restoration works on objects. A diversion for all vehicles will be arranged on the parallel state road. Such closures will be repeated on this road section every weekend in the same time period until 3 June 2019.
