A HISTORIC MOMENT FOR CROATIA

Last week, the long-lasting Croatian dream finally became reality: the country’s territory got connected once again.

Because the Croatian mainland is intersected by a small strip of the coast around the town of Neum (Bosnia and Herzegovina), the physical connection of the southernmost part of Dalmatia with the rest of Croatia was limited to Croatian territorial waters.

The construction of the bridge was firstly proposed in 1997, and the construction works even officially commenced in November 2005. However, in the next five years, only 3% of the required work was completed. In 2013 when Croatia joined the European Union, the possibility of a co-financed construction finally opened.

In 2015, EUR 330 million was approved from the Croatian Union Fund to finance 85% of construction costs. The tender was announced in 2017 and the Chinese company China Road and Bridge Corporation won it in April 2018 with a bid of 2 billion Kuna with the construction period of 36 months.
