How do you know when summer has arrived? Cars usually tell you it has before the sun gets a chance…
As 24sata reports on the 1st of July, 2017, a 3km long queue has gathered in the direction of Lucko, and worse yet, in the direction of Zagreb, the queue of cars is a huge 14km in length. More traffic queues have been reported at the border crossings with Bosnia and Herzegovina.
The traffic is intensified to say the least and occasionally very dense on the A1 motorway between Lučko and Bosiljevo 2 in both directions, the A2 Zagreb – Macelj motorway in the direction of Zagreb, the A4 Gorican – Zagreb, towards Zagreb, the A6 Rijeka – Zagreb in the coastal direction, Krk Bridge, on coastal roads, at border crossings, ferry ports and docks. The information on the lengthy waiting times was obtained from HAK (Hrvatski Auto Klub) at arround 15:30.
It has also been reported that a traffic ban for freight vehicles with a maximum permissible weight above 7.5 tons on certain roads in the coastal and Istrian area will come into force as of tomorrow, Sunday the 2nd of July from 12:00 to 23:00.
There is up to a two hour wait when entering Croatia from neighbouring Bosnia and Herzegovina, with long queues reported in the Metkovic and Dubrovnik areas. When crossing from Bosnia and Herzegovina into Croatia at Ivanica, you can reportedly expect to experience two hour waiting times, while entering Bosnia and Herzegovina from Croatia at the same crossing takes around thirty minutes.
