Since 2009, the main routes leading from the coast through Mostar to Sarajevo have been renewed, and from Sarajevo to the Croatian border at Slavonski Brod / Slavonski Šamac. By 2015, 100 kilometers of the highway were opened, from Zenica-Jug to Tarčina, bypassing Sarajevo, and from the Croatian border near Bijača to Međugorje. Three more sections are being prepared, and the entire part of the highway of the European Vc corridor in the Federation of Bosnia and Herzegovina should be completed by 2022.


On the completed section of the road, from Lučani to Jošanica, tolls are charged for driving on the highway. The amount of toll depends on the category of vehicle and ranges from 1.20 KM to 21.60 KM. The toll can be paid in cash, in domestic or foreign currency, credit cards, bank transfer or contactless electronic payment system.
