West Balkans - Tunnels

The West Balkans region is characterized by its diverse and picturesque landscapes, ranging from rugged mountains to serene coastlines. Amidst this natural beauty, a network of tunnels has been carved through the challenging terrain, serving as vital transportation and infrastructure links for all drivers alike!

Our team has been hard at work creating many of these tunnels across the road network in our upcoming West Balkans DLC for Euro Truck Simulator 2. With each one being unique in their own way, we've created quite a few additional assets and models to best represent their real life counter parts in our virtual world.

Thanks to the rugged terrain, you'll be able to travel through over 60 tunnels in the West Balkans DLC. A majority of these will be located in Croatia and in Bosnia and Herzegovina. In Croatia, many of these tunnels are located on the highway, along the coastal road network; whilst in Bosnia they have been constructed through scenic hilly and mountainous terrain.

Today, many tunnels found along major road networks have very strict safety rules to help minimize any accidents. Our teams have created lots of additional assets to represent some of the signage and technology that exists in many of the Tunnels; including traffic lights, digital speed signs, emergency phones, ventilation and more! 

You'll also find some well known and newer tunnels recreated in this DLC, such as the impressive Karawanks tunnel which crosses the Alpine Karawanks mountain range. Another such example is the Supava and Polakovica tunnels, which features an impressive connection known as the Ston Bridge connecting them both.

Although they look simple, tunnels are amazing feats of engineering which can sometimes take many years to create. We hope you take the time to check some of them out on your future journeys! We look forward to showcasing more from this upcoming DLC in the near future. Until then, keep on truckin'!
