As we recently reported, works on the Zagreb roundabout are now finally drawing to a close. After a long 385 days of the roundabout being intensively worked on, causing issues with traffic at one of the Croatian capital’s main hubs, the road is now ready to take cars.

As Poslovni Dnevnik writes on the 9th of January, 2020, the whole project has been under construction for a gruelling 385 days in total, and after the news came that everything was finally completed, more good news comes about how traffic will run along the new Zagreb (Remetinec) roundabout.

”We’re currently installing traffic lights and traffic signs and finishing off the final details. In addition, the Road Transport Commission must review everything and only then will we be able to put the Zagreb roundabout into circulation for all types of road traffic,” said project manager Goran Radić in conversation with journalists from 24sata.

After 385 days and with a massive construction price of 331.6 million kuna, of which 273 million kuna was co-financed by European Union funds and 48 million kuna from Croatia’s state budget, the completion of the Zagreb roundabout equals a bold ”tick” next to one of the country’s most demanding and significant strategic projects.

”We built the east-west tunnels at 280 metres in length. Drivers from the direction of Lučko and Novi Zagreb don’t have to enter the Zagreb roundabout at all, but they can pass under it. The roadways on the north side of the roundabout, Adriatic Bridge (Jadranski most) – Adriatic Avenue (Jadranska avenija) and Dubrovnik Avenue (Avenija Dubrovnik) – Adriatic Bridge (Jadranski most), have been extended by one lane and now have four lanes, of which two lanes enter the Zagreb roundabout and two lanes act as right turners which don’t enter it,” explained Radić.

”Projections show that 40 percent of the traffic will go through tunnels, and it will be more than 30 percent less crowded on the new Zagreb roundabout,” he concluded.
