D424 is a state road in Croatia that connects the city of Zadar with the A1 motorway.[1] It links Gaženica port in southern Zadar and Zadar 2 interchange on A1 motorway, executed as a dual carriage expressway (Croatian: brza cesta) connector, with an 80 km/h (50 mph) speed limit.[2] The D424 has five interchanges.[3] The expressway has been regarded in Zadar as a means, which will, together with the new Gaženica port and the Crno commercial zone, bring prosperity to the city.[4]

The road, as well as all other state roads in Croatia, is managed and maintained by Hrvatske ceste, state-owned company.[5]

Traffic volume[edit]

Traffic is regularly counted and reported by Hrvatske ceste, operator of the road.[6] Substantial variations between annual (AADT) and summer (ASDT) traffic volumes are attributed to the fact that the road connects a number of summer resorts to Croatian motorway network.
