Croatia Traffic Info

  • At the moment there are no serious traffic delays in the country. Occasional hold-ups are possible in the areas of roadworks and along the Adriatic costal road. Traffic is heavy on most of the roads leading towards the coast and towards the interior of the country, especially on the motorways (A1 Zagreb-Split-Ploče, A2 Zagreb-Macelj, A3 Bregana-Lipovac and A6 Rijeka-Zagreb), on the roads in Istria, on the Rijeka and Zagreb bypass roads, on the state road Karlovac-Knin-Sinj, on some sections of the Adriatic coastal road (Omiš-Split!), on the island of Krk and on the Krk bridge, in most of the ferry ports and at most of the border crossings. 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 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!
