Traffic forecast until Januar 6, 2017

Friday, December 30, 2016 1:21:12 PM

Before the New Year holidays, local traffic congestion due to events and shopping is common. There will be more traffic in the vicinity of tourist resorts as well. Due to New Year's Eve, road regulations are altered and roads are closed in multiple areas; therefore we ask drivers to follow the instructions of organisers.   

In Austria, Italy, a part of Germany and Croatia, January 6 is a holiday as well. On that day an increase in traffic from Croatia towards Austria and an increased number of freight vehicles towards Austria and Italy are expected.      

At the end of the holidays, especially on January 1 and 2, we expect an increase in traffic from tourist destinations towards urban centres and from Croatia to Austria. Congestion is possible especially at border crossings Gruškovje and Obrežje and before the Karawanks tunnel.  

Certain limitations of freight traffic during holidays in Slovenia and neighbouring countries:
