The new traffic regulation at the Split Ferry Port came into effect at 4 am on Tuesday morning, reports Splitski Dnevnik on June 18, 2019.

The biggest announcement is an entirely one-way Zvonimirova Street, completely one-way traffic through the City Port, with no turn to Zagrebačka Street from the direction of the Port. 

Thus, Zvonimirova street, just like last year, will be one-way, and four lanes will continue toward the city harbor. However, exiting the port will take place in only one direction, via the Bačvice bridge. The lanes at the bus station are now turned the opposite direction, considering all buses will travel to Jadranska Street.

Furthermore, there will be a big bus stop at Gat Svetog Duje instead of the current roundabout and four new disabled parking places, and a new bus stop at Bijankinijeva Street. The flow of traffic will also change below the Koteks skyscraper. You can watch the video detailing it all below. 


The traffic lights at the intersection of Zvonimirova and Zagrebačka Street next to the Bishop’s Palace are being programmed for the new traffic regulation and will provide a better flow of pedestrians at this intersection with a better flow of vehicles. It is important to note the changes in traffic flow in the lower part of Tolstojeva Street, where it is no longer possible to enter Tolstojeva Street from Zagrebačka, but only from Zagrebačka to Tolstojeva to the intersection with Ul. kneza Višeslava and further to Držićeva. The traffic flow has also changed at Ul. Sv. Petra Starog where vehicles can travel from the intersection next to the police station one-way to the Bishop’s Palace.

With this solution, the Split Ferry Port is more open to public transport and has joined forces with Promet to coordinate their lines with a new timetable. Promet buses will be adapted to the new traffic regulations and will increase their number of operations from the Port from 160 to 509.

The project was carried out by a number of experts including Trivium and the Faculty of Civil Engineering, Architecture and Geodesy Split, according to the joint request of the City of Split, Croatian Roads and the Port Authority, to achieve a better flow of vehicles and thus solve the problems of congestion at the Ferry Port in the summer months.

“The traffic analyzes of this project have shown an enormous capacity with the new solution and with its implementation, we do not expect any significant traffic approaching the City Port. The City of Split, in cooperation with the relevant Ministry of the Sea, Transport and Infrastructure and the state-owned companies (Croatian Roads, Croatian Railways and the Port of Split), operates a one-way traffic regulation in the center of the city and strengthens public transport, and especially the railways,” said deputy mayor of Split Nino Vela and added:

“We have introduced one-way traffic flow through Zvonimirova Street and the City Port, which improves the flow by more than two times, and introduces three times as many public bus lines through the City Port, which will increase the number of passengers in the City Port by three times (from the current 15,000 to 45 000). We also include the metro as public transport on the line from the City Port to Kopilica, which runs every 20 minutes for the fastest and most comfortable entry and exit of passengers to the City Port.“
