The traffic position of the municipality is rather favorable, although it is situated on a state cross-border. Passing through is one of the key traffic directions: the state road D2 (Slovenia – border crossing Dubrava Križovljanska – Varaždin – Virovitica – Našice – Osijek – Vukovar – Ilok – Serbia and Montenegro). Furthermore, construction of a fast road, the so-called „Podravska magistrala (highway)“ is planned for near future, which will be passing through the plain area of the municipality, and which will be directly linking Austria through Slovenia with highway Budapest-Zagreb. It should be emphasized that the mentioned Podravska magistrala will be passing through Economic zone Cestica.
