As Morski writes on the 17th of June, 2020, on Thursday, June the 1th, the Minister of Maritime Affairs, Transport and Infrastructure, Oleg Butković, will participate in the signing of two extremely important contracts worth a massive 554 million kuna in total, which are co-financed by European Union (EU) grants, and which are extremely important for the development of the busy Rijeka Port.

These are contracts for the execution of works on the DC403 state road from the Škurinje junction to Rijeka Port and contracts for the execution of the works on deepening the seabed at the Jadranska vrata (Adriatic gate) terminal.

The first contract will be signed by the President of the Management Board of Croatian roads (Hrvatske ceste), as a representative of the investor, together with the selected Association of Bidders consisting of the companies Kolektor CPG, GP Krk and Euro-asfalt. The value of this contract stands at 456.36 million kuna in total.

The DC403 state road, which will run from the Škurinje junction on the Rijeka bypass to the new container terminal along the coast to Rijeka Port is 2977 metres long, with 380 metres of access roads accompanying it. On that road lie the Podmurvice tunnel (1.2 kilometres long), the Piopi viaduct (316 metres long), the Mlaka viaduct (144 metres long) and the underpass, which is 56 metres in length.

After the signing of this contract, the ceremony will continue with the signing of the contract for the works within a project entitled “The improvement of infrastructure of Rijeka Port – the deepening of the southern connection AGCT (POR2CORE-AGCT Dredging)”, which is also co-financed through European Union funds. This contract, worth a total of 97.7 million kuna, will be signed by the Rijeka Port Authority’s director and a member of the Management Board of NUOVA CO.ED.MAR S.r.l.
