Crikvenica Port Authority Continues Works on Port

Total Croatia News

As we’ve already gotten used to, the end of the high tourist season usually means the start of construction works – and the Crikvenica Port Authority plans to improve Crikvenica’s port in order to improve the connection between Crikvenica and the island of Krk just across the channel, writes. 

Crikvenica is one of the biggest tourist hubs in Kvarner, a region located in the northern part of the Croatian coast, very popular with people from Zagreb, because of its proximity to the Croatian capital.

The planned construction includes the building of the breakwater on the west side of the port, 130 metres long, as well as the 60-metre-long “small pier”, and will be continued in the next week, as it had to be suspended during the tourist season.

It’s the biggest investment into the infrastructure since the Crikvenica Port Authority has been established, and up until recently, it was the biggest investment into the maritime domain within Primorje-Gorski Kotar County. 

Mario Kružić, Head of the Crikvenica Port Authority explains that, with the tourist season now behind them, the works will pick up so that the deadlines can be met.

A lot of the work has already been completed, mostly the parts that needed to be done underwater, and some of the concrete has already been poured. Once the entire project is completed, it will take the tourist and nautical offer of Crikvenica to a new level.

Additionally, all of the security requirements for the introduction and non-stop operation of the boat line Crikvenica – Šilo on Krk island will be met. That boat line holds great importance to those living on Krk island, as it will improve transport throughout the year, and help integrate Croatian islands into a wider traffic network. That will improve the employment level, the level of education, and access to medical care for all of the inhabitants of Krk.
