As Glas Slavonije writes, when the construction of the car park begins, the work will certainly not be slowed down by the archaeological investigations to be carried out before the earthwork and construction work, and the frequent complaints from builders that deadlines need to be pushed through will be avoided. Archaeological research is mandatory in all areas where the profession assumes there could be important and interesting archaeological discoveries.

Lipovac Autopark, a protected and safe parking lot for goods vehicles, is one of the strategic projects of the Vukovar-Srijem County, the owner of which is the Municipality of Nijemci. Economic development will be stimulated by taking advantage of the geographical and traffic location in the southeast of the county. The project is still far from the beginning of the works, but it is known that it will be built as part of the Lipovac Business Zone and is included in the spatial plan of the Municipality on approximately 54 hectares of land owned by the Republic of Croatia.

As GS reminds, the main purpose of the project is to solve the problem of heavy traffic caused by truck traffic at the border crossings to Serbia and, at the same time, to increase the safety of road traffic.

“Works on the strategic project of Lipovac Autopark are carried out continuously. The creation of project-technical documentation is a thorough and long process, but this project is of strategic importance for us and our county, and we expect the rest of the documentation to be resolved soon and help the further implementation of the works. In cooperation with the competent ministry, we continue to work on acquiring donations of the land needed for construction. The support of Prefect Damir Dekanić, the entire county and the Vukovar-Srijem Development Agency is present in all the steps necessary for the realisation of this project”, says Vjekoslav Belajević, Mayor of Nijemci Municipality. He adds that Lipovac Autopark will be a modern built and equipped, safe, and protected parking lot for trucks on the A3 Bregana – Zagreb – Lipovac motorway, with all accompanying facilities: sanitary facilities, motel, service workshop, café, administration building, inspection service, and customs control.

The implementation of this strategic project, whose value today is much higher than the initially planned HRK 53 million, will enable economic development and raise the standard of living of the population in eastern Croatia, especially the Vukovar-Srijem County and the Nijemci Municipality.

The Vukovar-Srijem Development Agency says that the car park could be completed within two to three years.
