The Republic of Slovenia has been undergoing intensive construction of motorways. Lack of time at such extensive projects was probably the reason for some mistakes.

Sinkholes should be enlarged to receive large amounts of water and to make place for cleaning ways. Runoff boundary conditions analysis shows that in some cases sinkhole volumes are still too low to receive the whole amount of water. Additionally, this kind of arrangement doesn't solve ecological problems of sinking of polluted water in t
