Traffic backed up at the border today after Slovenia closed 17 local crossings for trucks weighing more than 7.5 tonnes.
This morning at the Bregana border crossing with Slovenia traffic was backed up for four kilometres. Minister of Maritime Transport and Infrastructure Oleg Butković has commented the situation noting that it may be possible to open the 17 crossings in question strictly for Croatian and Slovenian transporters.
“Last week I was at a meeting with my colleague Bratušek, who is the Minister of Infrastructure there and we came out with a proposal for those smaller border crossings to be open only for Croatian and Slovenian transporters. We concluded that our services, that is the management from both ministries, will sit down and meet. That will happen on Thursday and we will attempt to formalize all of this together. I believe the Slovenian side will accept this, because I think this is good for us and for them and that we will move toward a positive solution,” said Butković.
