According to the Zagreb Holding, the pipeline on Marin Držić Avenue burst, and traffic was temporarily closed on Strojarska Street and at the intersection of Kneza Branimira Street and Marin Držić Avenue in the south direction, reports

One of the busiest intersections in Zagreb was completely underwater this morning. Water also accumulated between Strojarska and Držićeva avenues. Trams running along Marin Držić Avenue were temporarily stopped while work is carried out to remedy the flooding. Zagreb citizens had to walk to other tram stops to continue their journeys.

Due to a large amount of water, the police are currently monitoring the passage from Branimirova to Strojarska and from Branimirova to Držićevo in the south direction, in the direction of the Bus Station. In addition to the traffic congestion caused by the flood, taking into account the rush hour, some buses took a long time to arrive at their respective arrival times at the bus station.

For now, it is still possible to pass Držićeva towards the north, from the bus station towards Branimirova.

Tram timetable changes

Due to works on the affected water supply network, trams of lines 2, 5, 6, 7 and 8 run on changed routes. Trams of line 2 run Savska – Vukovarska – Savišće; trams of line 5 Prečko- Savska – Branimirova – Šubićeva – Kvaternikov trg – Dubrava; trams of line 6 Črnomerec – Main station – Branimirova – Šubićeva – Kvaternikov trg; trams of line 7 Dubec – Šubićeva- Branica – Main station – Savska – Savski most; while the trams of line 8 will run Mihaljevac – Draškovićeva – Branimirova – Šubićeva – Maksimir.

An extraordinary bus line Zaprudje – Vukovarska has been introduced.
