As Morski writes, Split-Dalmatia County, of which Brac island is a part, has launched a large infrastructure project to properly connect up the northern side of Brac. The project in question is worth a little less than 61 million kuna in total and the very first phase of it all is now nearing completion.
This Brac island project involves the construction of a new road and the renovation of the existing road which goes goes in the direction: Supetar – Pucisca – Povlja – Sumartin, which, they say, should “revive” the northern part of this large Dalmatian island and enable the further development of that part of it in general.
The works have been divided up into two different phases: the first phase is currently under construction and involves the construction of a new road in the length of 4.8 kilometres in total, while the second phase includes the construction of the second section from Pucisca to Povlja in the length of 10.4 kilometres, and the reconstruction of the entire route covering a total length of 31 kilometres.
For this, as they have referred to it, capital project of Brac island worth a massive 60.8 million kuna, funds were withdrawn from European Union funds, with non-refundable European Union funds amounting to 51.7 million kuna, while 9.1 million kuna was allocated from the state and county budget.
The first phase of this large Brac island project which will make traffic connections much easier for years to come should be completed over the next few months.
