The sub-Velebit section of the A1 Zagreb-Split-Ravča motorway is characterized by very unfavorable meteorological conditions (storm wind) especially in winter, which leads to the cases of temporary closure of individual sections of the A1 motorway, the most frequent in various combinations being the sections on the Sveti rok section. Deadline - Maslenica node - Posedarje node.
Some sections of the highway are closed due to winds that exceed the boundaries above which there is a risk of further traffic or of a group of vehicles. The closure for highway section traffic is carried out for the 1st group of vehicles or for all vehicles depending on the wind speed and the pavement condition (dry, wet). The first group of vehicles includes all types of highway vehicles except passenger cars.
- Before traveling on the road and while driving, listen to the weather forecast and road information on the radio frequency HR2.
- Keep track of messages on info-displays about traffic restrictions on individual sections of the highway and notifications of possible detours.
- You respect the traffic signage that indicates a detour, as it will take you back to the highway again and towards your desired destination.
- When driving on a section of the highway under the influence of wind, you must strictly observe the variable light speed limit signs and maintain a safe distance between vehicles.
