B1M Portal: Peljesac Bridge Among Largest Projects Connecting Europe

Lauren Simmonds

As Morski writes on the 2nd of October, 2020, the reputable infrastructure-oriented B1M portal has made an overview of the largest infrastructure projects that will contribute to better integration of Europe, and Croatia’s long awaited Peljesac bridge which will connect Croatian territory, currently split by a border with neighbouring Bosnia and Herzegovina, has been ranked among them.

These are projects with respective values which are usually measured in billions of euros – on some, construction has already come a long way, and not some, construction is yet to begin, reports Jutarnji list.

Given the fact that Croatia’s infrastructure projects are typically not among the likes of those which go on in richer European countries, it is interesting that the much anticipated Peljesac Bridge has found itself on the B1M portal’s list among the huge railway tunnels under the Alps, the road tunnel under the Baltic Sea and the large water canal in France.

Let’s have a quick look at what the B1M portal had to say about Croatia’s strategic project:

Peljesac Bridge (Republic of Croatia)

The first project mentioned is Croatia’s Peljesac Bridge, which, once completed (most likely in two years), will connect the southernmost part of Croatia with the rest of the country, thus bypassing the currently necessary border crossing with Bosnia and Herzegovina in Neum. The bridge will be 2,404 metres long, 23.6 metres wide, and the entire construction project is worth 420 million euros.

The contractor is the Chinese company China Road and Bridge Corporation, while the access roads, which will cover 32 kilometres in total, are being built by the Austrian company Strabag and the Greek company Avax.

For other European mega-projects the B1M portal has included on its list, watch the video below:
