Traffic delays are expected in the Karawanks tunnel until the middle of December 2014 due to maintenance work being carried out on the tunnel’s road and ventilation system by the Slovenian motorway operator Dars and the Austrian motorway operator Asfinag. The second phase of upgrading the tunnel will cause traffic delays on the A11. Motorists must reckon on 30 minute delays in both directions during the day. The tunnel is closed at night between 11 pm and 4.30 am. Travelling towards Slovenia there is a long diversion in place via Graz, A2 southbound motorway, A9 Phyrn motorway via Udine/Italy. Private cars can avoid the roadworks by taking the Loibl Pass or the Wurzen Pass.
