Peljesac Bridge Map and Facts

I was going through some old press cuttings, looking for something completely unrelated, and found some old articles from the local press with a lot of info about the future Peljesac Bridge. So, below is a compilation of some facts and figures about this project:

A bridge between Croatian Mainland and Peljesac is going to be built from Komarna to Roscica Glavica (Brijesta) on Peljesac Peninsula. (see below map)

  • The total length of the bridge is 2374 m ( about 1.5 miles).
  • Bridge has 13 pillars
  • Each pillar is higher than 100 meters.
  • The distance between each pillar is 170 meters.
  • The height at the middle of the bridge is 35 meters.
  • The estimated cost of the whole project is 250-300 million Euro.
  • 70% of the total cost of building incurred by under the sea work.
  • The opening of the bridge is planned for Summer 2009. Update: Planned for late 2021

    Is it going to be part of the Split – Dubrovnik highway (A1) which is currently under construction?

    New Brunswick to Prince Edward Island in Canada has a two-lane bridge called the “Confederation Bridge.”

    Yes, it can get windy on the bridge. However, the bridge does get closed if the winds are extreme. So far, no one has been injured or killed because of the winds.
