In Slovenia, a traffic restriction for freight vehicles above 7.5t will be in effect from Sunday, 30 October, to Tuesday, 1 November. Increased freight traffic is predicted on the Slovenian motorways before and after the restriction and longer waiting periods for freight vehicles are expected at border crossings with Croatia.
