Celje is the third largest city in Slovenia. It is located on the intersection of V. and X. corridor, as well as on A1 Slovene highway. The city is facing a rapid growth in vehicle traffic, which affects the air quality of the area and health of the inhabitants. Due to neglecting the development of public transport and other sustainable modes of transport in the recent years, cars became the number one choice of traveling around the city. The old town was recently renovated and closed for traffic but for modal shift to happen, investments in sustainable mobility and restrictive parking policies will need to be implemented in the coming years.
