“Regarding road connectivity, this year is the year in which we have completed a strategic project of connecting the southern part of Croatia to the highway network. The fourth phase, including the access roads to the Pelješac Bridge, was completed a month and a half ago. We have discussed the plan for this decade at the government level, where we will precisely identify the regions in Croatia where we need to improve the transportation infrastructure. One of the road routes that certainly requires attention is from Ston to Dubrovnik, and we will make an effort to secure funding for the realization of that project, commented Croatian Prime Minister, Andrej Plenković.
And added “I have already mentioned four options that exist: connecting Metković to the highway, reaching Komarna, linking Pelješac, and, of course, reaching Dubrovnik from Čilipi Airport.”
The far south of Croatia may well now have a new bridge and access roads, but it still doesn’t have connection to the main highway system in Croatia. To drive from Dubrovnik to the first junction of the main A1 highway takes over an hour. And the road from the Dubrovnik Airport to the city is in desperate need of improving.
