The number of inhabitants who live in the impact area of major roads outside urban areas has decreased. In 2017, around 16,000 fewer inhabitants were exposed to high noise levels throughout the day and during the night compared to 2012. In urban areas, the number of inhabitants who are exposed to road traffic noise has not decreased. The number of inhabitants who are exposed to high noise levels throughout the day has remained at the same level as in 2012 and is estimated at 64,000.

The number of inhabitants who are exposed to traffic noise along major roads outside urban areas is gradually decreasing. In 2017, around 16,000 fewer inhabitants were exposed to high road traffic noise levels throughout the day compared to 2012. There is an important difference between inhabitants who live in the impact area of major motorways and highways, and inhabitants who live in the impact area of major main and regional roads.

Neutral

The number of inhabitants who live in the impact area of major railways outside urban areas and are exposed to rail traffic noise has not changed significantly in the past years. In 2017, around 7,000 inhabitants were exposed to high noise levels throughout the day and around 10,700 inhabitants during the night. Between 2012 and 2017, the number of inhabitants who are exposed to high rail traffic noise did not decrease.

The quantity of end-of-life tyres collected for recovery increased dramatically when producer liability was introduced. Arround 16,000 tonnes of end-of-life tyres is produced, which is about 8kg per capita. In 2015, 65% of end-of-life-tyres have been recovered through material recovery and 35% through energy recovery.

Results of the REUS 2019 survey show that the car represents the main mode of transportation both in people's city of residence and outside the city. The share of surveyed households that walk or cycle in addition to driving a car and using public transport increased significantly compared to the period 2010–2017. Choice of transport does not depend on the time of year. During the summer season, the bicycle is an additional mode of transport to work for just under one-third of respondents.

Neutral

The survey results show that between 2010 and 2019, the share of households considering the purchase of an electric or a hybrid passenger car statistically significantly increased. Statistical data for registered vehicles shows that, during 2014-2019, the share of new registered electric and hybrid passenger cars slightly increased. In comparison to 20 European countries Slovenia ranks in the middle.

Neutral

Large majority of registered cars still use conventional fuels (petrol and diesel). Although the total share of all alternative propulsion vehicles increased slightly from 2014 to 2019, it remains statistically insignificant.

Bad

The volume of passenger transport demand has been increasing in Slovenia for several decades. Above all the volume of two most unsustainable modes – passenger cars and air transport (especially after 2002). The growth stopped after the economic recession in 2008 but intensified again after 2014. In 2020 and 2021 the pandemics caused another, steep decline. Trend of the public transport modes has been declining for decades, especially the proportion of intercity bus services.

Bad

Road goods transport has been growing sharply since Slovenia joined the EU, as the volume of tonne-kilometres of the Slovenian transport carriers increased by more than 2,5 times in the period 2004-2019. The growth of freight transport and transit in Slovenia has been constant in road, rail and maritime transport since independence, despite intermediate economic problems in the EU during the recession 2008-2014. The exception is air freight transport, which has stagnated for years after a sharp decline in 2008.

Good

In the first decade of this century, Slovenia focused the majority of its investments in the road network, especially on the construction of the motorway. Investments in railways have been neglected and therefore, uncompetitive with the road transport. After 2011, this trend is changing, although the total volume of investments in transport infrastructure has decreased significantly since 2008. Since 2010, Slovenia has been allocating a larger share of funds to the modernization and upgrading of the railway network.
