ZAGREB, July 27, 2019 – The state-owned road construction and maintenance company Hrvatske Ceste (HC) on Friday selected contractors for access roads to the Pelješac Bridge, awarding a contract for two subsections of the Ston bypass road to the Greek company Avax and a contract for the Duboka-Šparagovići section to the Austrian company Strabag.

Avax made an offer of 511.5 million kuna for the subsections Šparagovići-Prapratno and Prapratno-Doli, which are 18 kilometres long in total, while Strabag offered 478.3 million kuna for the 12-km-long Duboka-Šparagovići section.

The decision may be appealed within 10 days.

The agreement for the construction of the Pelješac Bridge with access roads, worth 2.08 billion kuna without VAT, was signed on 23 April 2018 by Hrvatske Ceste and China Road and Bridge Corporation. Eighty-five percent of eligible costs will be covered by the EU.

The construction of the Pelješac Bridge is the first of four phases of a project for road connectivity with southern Dalmatia. The other phases include the construction of access roads, and the construction of the Ston bypass road includes the construction of a bridge. The tentative deadline for the completion of all works is 31 January 2022.
