As Poslovni Dnevnik writes on the 6th of October, 2020, after dark falls, no one at the ZET tram terminal at Mihaljevac wants to spend more time there than they have to. Due to poor lighting, the terminal is full of shady, dark corners, so passengers waiting for a tram or a bus tend to be grouped under lamps to somehow feel better.

Even during the day, many will agree, this particular ZET tram terminal is a rather ugly space where it can be seen that the entire area is desperately crying out for renewal. Residents of Podsljeme were delighted when they heard back in February that the ZET tram terminal was finally set to undergo a thorough reconstruction worth a massive thirteen million kuna, but they had to wait a little more than half a year for a tender for the contractors to be announced, writes Vecernji list.

Bidders can apply until October the 12th, 2020, and their job will be to turn the run down Mihaljevac, and it isn’t a crime to refer to it as that, into something much more presentable. According to the tender documentation, this ZET tram terminal should be much more spacious, starting with the bus terminal, which will be twice as large, oval in shape, so that vehicles will be able to turn without maneuvering backwards. The terminal, as well as the taxi stand that will also be properly arranged, will be adapted for people with reduced mobility, and canopies for bicycles will be located at the northern end of it. All stops will be equipped with canopies for passengers, bins and info posts showing the arrival of vehicles on an attractive LED display, the drainage system will be restored, and the entire space will receive a horticultural “makeover”.

Prior to these works, according to the tender documentation, the existing facilities, which have been in a very bad condition for a long time now, will all have to be removed, and the building with the public toilets and ZET’s ticket office will be the first to fall. After that, two kiosks and the old canopy will be removed. Residents of Podsljeme would also like to have facilities such as a flower shop, a bakery and stalls with seasonal fruit available for purchase, but this is unfortunately not being provided for in this tender, but a special one regarding that will be announced.
