In the presence of the Prime Minister, Andrej Plenković, the contract with China Road and Bridge Corporation on the construction of the future Peljesac Bridge was signed today in Dubrovnik.
“This project is of strategic, long-term importance to the whole country. The project is meaningful not only for the long-term development of Peljesac, Korcula, Lastovo and southern Croatia. The project is also important for the supply of goods to southern Croatia which will become faster and more efficient - said the prime Minister at the signing.
The Prime Minister also added that the future bridge will also have a height of 55 metres and a range of 280 metres and therefore “allow our friends in Bosnia and Herzegovina safe passage into the port of Neum.”
Numerous ministers attended the signing ceremony, which was held in the Hotel Excelsior, as well as the Chinese Ambassador to the Republic of Croatia.
