Namely, the coast in the area is being extended to enable quality mooring of catamarans. The same project will enable expanding the passenger corridor and better flow of passengers and other pedestrians using the Coast of Prince Domagoj. From 2016 to 2019, the number of passengers transported by catamarans increased by 60%. In 2016, 714,034 passengers were transported, and in 2019, 1,145,818 passengers. Following the project’s implementation, four catamaran berths will be put into operation, which are currently out of order.

The upgrade will enable the operational shore to function for mooring and unmooring of catamarans by separating the operational shore into the part for mooring, loading, and unloading, and the supply of ships from the part that serves for pedestrian communication. Simultaneously, a part of the operating area used by cars and trucks to board ferries will be separated by a green belt.

Reconstructing the existing Coast of Prince Domagoj I and II is planned so that the existing operational coast will be extended five and a half meters towards the sea, improving the existing service, port functionality and increasing the safety of port users. The current operational shore is about four meters wide, and the extension will provide an operational shore nine and a half meters wide. The Coast of Prince Domagoj I’s length is 135 meters, and the Coast of Prince Domagoj II is 125 meters. The newly created area of the operational coast is about 1400 m2.

The shore will be paved with stone and equipped with utilities, lighting, supply cabinets for supplying ships with electricity and water, and additional green areas and decorative floor slabs that will visually separate the part for mooring, loading and unloading, and supply of ships from the part used for pedestrian communication. It is important to note that the project envisages ensuring accessibility for people with disabilities and people with reduced mobility. Thus, the project enabled unhindered communication throughout the location and access to the public traffic area – all without barriers.

The deadline for the execution of works is nine months. The maximum amount for co-financing the costs of the project with public funds is HRK 42,284,052.27 or 100% of eligible costs of the project, of which HRK 35,941,444.42 or 85% comes from the EU Cohesion Fund through the Operational Program Competitiveness and Cohesion 2014-2020, and HRK 6,342,607.85 or 15% from the State Budget of the Republic of Croatia.

The project ‘Reconstruction – extending the Coast of Prince Domagoj I and II in the City Port of Split’ is planned as the first phase of the ‘Reconstruction and expansion of St. Peter’s Pier in the City Port of Split’ project. With the implementation of these projects, the infrastructure will complete the pool of the Split ferry port and ensure optimal traffic flow, level of services, and sustainable development for the decades ahead, according to the Split ferry port.
