Total Croatia News

ZAGREB, July 16, 2019 – The Croatian Roads company, the Bosnian Communications and Transport Ministry and a contractor representative signed in Zagreb on Tuesday a EUR 19.5 million contract on the construction of a bridge across the Sava river from Okučani to the Croatian-Bosnian border.

Including VAT, the contract is worth 23.5 million euro and the costs will be covered equally by Croatia and Bosnia and Herzegovina. The bridge will be built by a consortium comprising the Bosnian company Integral Inženjering and Croatian companies Đuro Đaković Montaža and Zagreb-Montaža.

Croatian Transport Minister Oleg Butković, who was present at the signing ceremony, said the contract proved that Croatia and BiH, neighbours and friends, could carry out big infrastructure projects.

The bridge across the Sava is part of a future expressway stretching from the Croatian-Hungarian border across Virovitica and Okučani to the Croatian-Bosnian border.

The bridge is expected to be built in the next 30 months. It will be 462 metres long, 22 metres wide and have four lanes. The whole project consists of three stages and envisages the construction of 8.5 km of access roads.

Butković said the Svilaj bridge, which is also being built by Croatia and BiH, would be inaugurated by the end of the year.
