Reconstruction of Ombla Bridge near Dubrovnik Underway

Written by  Feb 07, 2024

After the preparatory work of removing the existing asphalt covering and concrete slab, which was in poor condition, the reconstruction of the Ombla Bridge continues. High-pressure washing of the bridge structure from the top and bottom sides is currently underway, along with drilling for anchoring and installation of reinforcement, as preparation for the construction of a new reinforced concrete slab.

A series of specialized works will follow, using special materials such as epoxy, which require specific conditions, longer drying times, and avoiding vibrations from traffic during that time. Additionally, the works will be carried out in two phases, lane by lane, as one lane must always remain accessible in case the Dr. Franjo Tuđman Bridge is closed due to strong winds.

The rehabilitation of the Ombla Bridge, worth 494,302.50 euros, is being carried out by the company Mar d.o.o. under the professional supervision of Graf d.o.o. According to the project of the Faculty of Civil Engineering, new reinforced concrete slabs will be constructed, a new waterproofing system for the bridge will be installed, and a new asphalt covering will be applied. The works also include the construction of a new sidewalk and pedestrian railing.
