Slovenia has introduced a new traffic ban

The regulation prohibits transit traffic at border crossing points which can only be accessed by main roads or regional roads. The freight traffic has to use the A1, A4 and A5 motorways. The restriction does not apply to motor vehicles loading or unloading cargo and traffic to the cross-border counties in Croatia.

Freight traffic with a starting point or destination in Slovenia shall not be restricted.

The transit traffic of trucks over 7.5 t can only use A1, A4 and A5 motorway.
