How do you know when something in Croatia definitely won’t happen? Usually when you’re told that it definitely will. Some Zagreb traffic news as the much anticipated and highly problematic issue of closing the city’s large roundabout, which was initially scheduled for much earlier on has been delayed yet again.
As Poslovni Dnevnik writes on the 29th of October, 2018, Zagreb traffic is set for some considerable disruption as the date is pushed back once again. As far as crossroads, temporary roads consisting of as many as four lanes will be constructed during the roundabout’s closure.
The newly planned date for the start of for the closure of the capital city’s large Remetinec roundabout is now December the 15th, 2018, and works on the area are expected to continue until January the 30th, 2020, according to a report from Dnevnik.hr, who obtained this new information from the competent City Office.
To briefly recall, the information which was being circulated before now stated that the rotor should have been closed from November the 30th this year.
“As far as the bypasses are concerned, there will be a temporary road with four lanes (two in the east-west direction) and the harmonisation of all of the traffic lights in the vicinity of the works will be carried out.
There will be temporary traffic regulation signs placed near the bypass near Lučko and at the Jankomir bridge, and a large part of the traffic that is now using the roundabout is being planned to be shifted towards other traffic directions. ZET Zagreb Holding ltd will organise substitute transport for passengers [using public transport] by introducing new bus lines, and ZET will arrange for all of its existing bus lines to continue but on the new temporary roads,” read a statement from the City of Zagreb.
