Traffic forecast until 28 May 2020

Friday, May 22, 2020 4:01:00 AM

Since traffic on Slovenian roads is increasing, we would like to notify drivers that there will be congestion during the morning and afternoon rush hours, especially in areas with road closures. Due to the gradual easing of measures, and holidays in certain European countries, more traffic is expected from Austria to Croatia.

Control of traffic and passengers remains at border crossings with neighbouring countries. Occasionally there are longer waiting queues at border crossings.
