Govt supports 3 infrastructure projects for Split, worth EUR 405 mn

ZAGREB, 04.05.2018.
The government on Friday decided to support three large-scale infrastructure projects with an estimated value of almost HRK 3 billion that would be implemented in Split and Transport and Infrastructure Minister Oleg Butkovic said that activities would be taken to include the projects in the list of strategic investment projects.

One of those projects is a fast speed railway between the railway station and ferry port to Split airport as well as the construction of a new central railway station with an estimated value of HRK 1.1 billion, Butkovic said.

An additional HRK 2 billion is estimated to be needed for a new multimodal platform for the Solin-Stobrec-Dugi Rat-Omis, Split agglomeration, which would resolve the problem of the lack of a bypass road in the Split area.

The government also gave the thumbs up for a project for the construction of a new access and exit road from the ferry port and a new exit on the A1 motorway leading to the ferry port. This project is estimated to cost HRK 81 million.

Several other projects were endorsed with the government's conclusions including a project for the Dracevac barracks to be transformed into a technology park with part of the property being returned to Split-Makarska Catholic Diocese, State Assets Minister Goran Maric explained.

The government also decided to grant about 196,000 square meters on the slopes of Mt Mosor for the construction of apartments for veterans and members of the academic community. Maric estimates that the value of that land amounts to about HRK 49 million.

Environment Protection Minister Tomislav Coric explained that the project to rehabilitate the Karepovac landfill would cost HRK 187 million, while the first phase which is currently underway is estimated at HRK 68 million.

Coric added that the government supported the construction of the Lecevica waste management plant with a value of HRK 592 million.
