If we have any advice for you today, please stay off the roads!

Traffic is currently backed up for 10 kilometers at the entrance to Split from the direction of Omiš, with congestion also on the road from Omiš to Dugi Rat. If the crowds continue at this pace, the situation will severely worsen, reports Slobodna Dalmacija on August 12, 2017. 

The extended weekend and peak season has done everything but help the ever-problematic section between Split and Omiš, and crowds and stoppages can be found on the roads going in both the direction of the sea and the interior.

In front of the toll booths in Dugopolje, in the direction of Split, the traffic is backed up for about 1.5 kilometers.

Congestion and traffic can also be found in the section between Zadar 2 and the Sveti Rok tunnel in the direction of Zagreb. In front of the tunnel, traffic is backed up for about 2 kilometers.

On the Krk bridge in the direction of the island, traffic is backed up for about 5 kilometers. Even heavier traffic has been reported in the direction of the mainland where cars are backed up for 20 kilometers.

On the Zagreb bypass towards Lučko from the direction of Buzina, cars are backed up for about 4 kilometers, as well as from the direction of Jankomir. 

The situation is no better at the Istrian Y. Cars are backed up at the border crossings of Kaštel and Plovanija for 9-kilometers which partly extends to the Istrian Y, while in front of the Učka tunnel in the direction of Rijeka, cars are backed up for about 10-kilometers.

More information soon.

Croatia Traffic Info

  • Drive carefully on the A7 motorway (15th km) in direction Zagreb between the junctions Matulji and Jušići due to a broken-down vehicle. Traffic is intensified on the roads in direction coast, in direction interior and on the roads along the coast. Sections of the roads closed due to roadworks: -the DC29 from Novi Golubovec (DC29, DC35) -the DC502 Smilčić-Pridraga state road -ŽC5042 Višnjan-Tićan. Traffic is regulated by traffic signals/one road lane is free only: -on the DC1 state road in Knin, on the section Sučević-Otrić in Otrić -on the DC1 state road on the section Jošani-Udbina-Ondić -on the state road DC2 in Vukovar, (Kudeljarska and Priljevo street) -on the state road DC66 Pula- Raša bridge -on the state road DC206 Valentinovo-Petrovsko. 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!
