May 26, 2023 – With many recreation spots and sports events regularly taking place in the city on the Danube, Vukovar is indeed full of fit life. To add to the picture, a new adrenaline park and walking trail are in the works at the famous Adica forest park.
As Glas Slavonije writes, the mayor of Vukovar signed contracts on the execution of works within the framework of the Adica project with the contractors, the companies Planum Građenje d. o. o. and Vodoprivreda Vinkovci d. d. Director Emil Tuša attended the signing on behalf of Planum Građenje, and director Željko Šarčević on behalf of Vodoprivreda. Along with mayor Penava, project manager Igor Antolović, head of the Administrative Department for Economy Kristina Bilić, as well as director of the Vukovar Development Agency Darijan Zeko and director of Vukovar Sports Facilities Ivan Szabo, who are partners in the project, were also present at the signing of the contract.
The first man of Vukovar reminded that the Adica development project is part of the Intervention Plan of Vukovar and one of the capital projects.
“I am happy that, after we found ourselves in a situation where the previously selected contractor ran into problems, we are continuing the project and that we managed to overcome the previously created problems and call for a new public tender, so today we are witnessing the act of signing contracts with the companies with whom we have cooperated well so far,” he said, adding that the works will start soon, and the deadline for their completion is nine months from the day of introduction to work.
Project manager Igor Antolović explained that a one-kilometer wooden walking trail would be built along the Vuka River. It will stretch from the beginning of the Adica forest park to the bridge near the St. Petka church and have branches towards the left and right banks of the Vuka River. Along the promenade, Adica will receive a sports and entertainment adrenaline park consisting of high-altitude and low-lying static polygons, a 20-meter-high climbing wall, and a 470-meter-long zip line that will cross the Vuka River.
