Peljesac Bridge Construction Works Started

It seems things are moving on with that long promised Bridge from Croatian Mainland (Komarna near Klek) to Peljesac Peninsula. I’m looking forward for that one..


” Prime Minister Ivo Sanader formally opened construction work on what will be the longest bridge in Croatia, one that will connect the southern Peljesac peninsula to the mainland. He said that the Peljesac project would bring benefits to the entire country as citizens of Croatia would no longer need a passport to reach the southernmost part of the country. The southernmost part of Croatia is cut off from the rest of the country at Neum, where neighbouring Bosnia-Herzegovina has a narrow outlet to the Adriatic Sea. The Peljesac bridge will be 2,300 metres long and the cost of construction is estimated at between 250 and 300 million euros along with access roads. The project is scheduled to be completed by 2008.”
