Traffic forecast until 4 June

Monday, June 1, 2020 10:33:00 PM

Note to drivers that traffic congestion will again be possible during morning and afternoon rush hours, especially in areas with road closures. Due to the gradual easing of measures, and to 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 will be longer queues at border crossings.

Planned works

Traffic in certain places is slowed down near road closures. Please respect the traffic signalisation!

Ljubljana and its surroundings

On the eastern Ljubljana bypass, the overtaking lane will be closed in both directions up to and including 12 June 2020 in the Golovec tunnel due to preparatory works for the reconstruction of the tunnel. Traffic will run on the driving lane and the far right lane.

In the period from 12 June to 10 August 2020, refurbishment works are planned in the Golovec tunnel on the A1 motorway. The tunnel tube from the Styria region towards Lower Carniola will be closed to traffic; two-way traffic for passenger cars and vehicles with a total permissible weight not exceeding 3.5t (the so-called vignette vehicles) will be routed through the adjacent tunnel tube. Vehicles whose maximum permissible weight exceeds 3.5t will not be allowed to drive through.
