Heads Up, Split! New Traffic Regulations from June, 28 Buses Changing Routes

In the blink of an eye and we are already right around the corner from June 1, the date when the temporary traffic regulation through the Split City Port begins, which will try to solve the problem of crowds on Kralja Zvonimira street and Zagrebačka street during the tourist season, reports Slobodna Dalmacija on May 21, 2019. 

The new one-way traffic along the Split City Port,  and further through Jadranksa street, Bijankinijeva street, and Pojišanska street, which all drivers but also many pedestrians can expect in less than 10 days, will also be reflected on the routes of public bus lines.

How this should look, in practice, was explained by Miroslav Delić, director of “Promet”. 

“According to the new organization, it is agreed that all bus lines that come to Zvonimirova street to the city turn right to Zagrebačka street (near the old “Slobodna” office) and then proceed to the usual route.

However, it is a key change on the routes that return from the city center, because after the start of the new traffic regulation, the buses from Zagrebačka street will turn right to the port, or to the new, bigger junction to be made at the current roundabout at the central bus station.

The buses will continue driving through the bridge at Bačvice to Bijankinijeva and Pojišanska streets, and further to the usual routes and destinations.

There are some 28 city and suburban lines in Split, and this way we can have 509 buses pass per day, instead of the current 160,” said the first man of public transport in Split.

Thus, apart from the bus lines 9, 10 and 15, the Promet lines 2, 3, 5, 5a, 8, 9, 11, 14, 15, 17, 18, 26, 27, 28, 29, 30, 60 and 68 will pass by the port. 

As for lines 9, 10 and 15, after they cross Bijankinijeva, they will turn left at Pojišanska, at the second Police Station building, which will be enabled from the beginning of June and will connect with Zvonimirova and continue to Zagrebačka by Domovinskog rata street.

Due to the changed routes in public transport, apart from the station at the port, there will be another at Bijankinijeva street, at the Feniks store, at the site of the current street parking lot.

Last year, the biggest problem was traffic on Zagrebačka street, which caused the buses to be delayed more than an hour, disturbing the overall timetable.

“If everything goes according to plan, there will certainly be a better flow of traffic, which means that we can move between 40,000 and 45,000 passengers in the port,” said Delić and added that the Promet timetable should remain the same.
