If you are driving from Zagreb to Dubrovnik, or indeed vice versa, don’t turn to Google Maps to get the fastest route, it won’t be the fastest and will lead you on a magical mystery tour through construction sites.
The Peljesac Bridge is nearing completion, with the actual bridge expected to be fully completed and issued with permits by the end of the month, however the two access roads are still in the “under construction” phase. Google however has a different view and have already connected Dubrovnik to the rest of Croatia on their Google Maps service.
If you choose the fastest route then Google will try to send you over a bridge that is still waiting completion, reports Dubrovacki Vjesnik. It seems like the tech giant has somewhat jumped the gun, with even the Croatian Prime Minister stating that the bridge project won’t be open until the tourist season this year. And this promise is also relatively optimistic.
