Designing of forest roads

Designing of forest roads includes at least the preparation and harmonisation of project documentation for the construction of a forest road and related counselling.

A forest road may only be designed by a responsible project designer for forest roads who is adequately qualified and as a company or cooperative has the project designing activity entered in the register of companies or as an individual sole trader has such an activity registered with the competent tax administration.

Prior to the start of the forest road construction, the investor must lodge an initiative (application) for determination of detailed report of zero lines with the Slovenian Forest Service. A preliminary design of the foreseen forest road may be attached to the initiative. The detailed report of zero lines is a mandatory basis for designing a forest road and provides essential elements of possible routes of a forest road at the opening section.

The deadline for the issue of a detailed report of zero lines by the Slovenia Forest Service is one month after receiving the initiative. If the Slovenia Forest Service during the preparation of a detailed report of a zero line establishes that a foreseen construction of a forest road would significantly endanger forest functions, it rejects the preparation of a detailed report of a zero line and with the decision also rejects the issue of the Service consent to construct the facility.
