We’ve reported on the state of affairs of the works on the large Zagreb roundabout (Remetinec roundabout) which has been closed for a long time, causing changes and indeed sometimes issues with driving in the Croatian capital city.
Recently, news appeared that the Zagreb roundabout itself had been completed after thirteen very, very long months of being closed to the public. Next came the announcement that there could be plans to introduce a new tram line in the city, which would be five or six kilometres long, be of importance to the future Blato hospital and also raise property prices in the surrounding areas.
It is expected that Zagreb Mayor Milan Bandic would readily approve such a plan and have the means provided for it quickly given the fact that it would be a major plus for the city for a multitude of practical reasons.
As Poslovni Dnevnik writes on the 22nd of January, 2020, the Zagreb roundabout is one of the capital projects of the City of Zagreb that should facilitate traffic in that part of the city, and it will also address the significant issues caused by one of the largest black traffic points in all of Zagreb.
Its value stands at an enormous 331.7 million kuna, while the grant amount is 321 million kuna, of which 272.8 million kuna is co-financed by the European Regional Development Fund and 48.1 million kuna comes from the state budget of the Republic of Croatia.
Take at the video below of the now finished works on the Zagreb roundabout, which will finally officially open for cars this coming Sunday:
