Croatia Traffic Info

  • Traffic is heavy along the DC8 Adriatic road, on the roads in Istria and at the border crossings. Hold-ups are possible in roadwork areas. Roads are wet and slippery in Istria, in the mountain region Gorski kotar, in the central and north-western parts of the country and in the Croatian Littoral. Sections of the roads closed due to roadworks: -on the DC1 state road in Lučko (Zagreb) -on the DC6 state road, section Glina-Dvor border crossing; -on the DC502 Smilčić-Pridraga state road. Traffic is regulated by traffic signals/one road lane is free only: -on the DC1 state road in Knin until 14 July; -on the DC1 state road at Mostanje and on the section Sučević-Otrić. -on the DC8 Adriatic road on the section Zaton Doli-Bistrina; -on the DC66 Pula-Most Raša state road. With the sunny and dry weather, more and more cyclists and motorists are on the roads. Other vehicles (such as cars or trucks) should look carefully for bicyclists before turning left or right, merging into bicycle lanes and opening doors next to moving traffic. Check your mirrors and be aware of blind spots before turning. While at a stop sign or red light, make a complete stop in order to let bikers pass, and check for unseen riders. Respect the right of way of bicyclists because they are entitled to share the road with you. Cyclists are not immune to traffic violations: pay attention to red lights and practice arm signaling!

Traffic is suspended at the border crossing Metković due to a system failure. Due to traffic density and occasional additional controls, during the day longer waiting times are possible at the border crossings with Slovenia, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Montenegro and Serbia. At Harmica border crossing traffic is allowed for vehicles up to 7,5 tonnes only.
