Croatian Port Infrastructure Projects to Go Ahead Despite Pandemic

Lauren Simmonds

September the 4th, 2020 – The ongoing coronavirus pandemic has been a thorn in the side of many a previously planned investment and project, with many of them having been shelved to await better economic circumstances or even written off entirely. Fortunately, this isn’t always the case, and the planned Croatian port infrastructure projects on Lastovo and Korcula, as well as on the Peljesac peninsula, worth 700 million kuna in total, are still going ahead.

As Morski writes on the 3rd of September, 2020, Dubrovnik-Neretva County Prefect Nikola Dobroslavic and his associates held a web conference recently with the directors of Croatian port authorities in the area of ​​the country’s southernmost county, on the topic of port infrastructure projects which are worth the aforementioned figure of 700 million kuna.

These are projects for which, as County Prefect Nikola Dobroslavic pointed out on this occasion, funds have been provided and which are already in various stages of implementation.

”Eight Croatian port projects and the Korcula – Racisce road, which are in various stages of implementation, are worth more than 700 million kuna and are financed almost entirely by European Union (EU) funds,” explained the prefect of Croatia’s southernmost county, and pointed out that providing the funds for these large projects was preceded by extensive preparation.

It is also worth mentioning that the last in a series of projects for which a construction contract was signed was Nova luka – Polaciste on the Dalmatian island of Korcula worth almost 190 million kuna in total, and to which the project of building an access road worth more than 171 million kuna is connected.

A building permit for the new port of Perna, a decision on financing the extension of the port of Ubli on Lastovo and the completion of all of the necessary documentation for the extension of the port of Prigradica are expected soon.
