The Pelješac Bridge is slowly but surely surfacing on these hot summer days, with the Chinese builders constructing the bridge faster than expected.
Already above the sea surface, one can see the constructions that will carry the future pillars of the bridge. The new Pelješac Bridge is the largest investment in recent Croatian history, worth 2.08 billion Kuna, and it is on course to be completed in the next two years. In the first year, the Chinese company China Road and Bridge Corporation (CRBC) were able to complete 25 percent of the bridge work.
Nearly 400 Chinese workers are involved in the project and according to some local reports they are even working at night in order to finish the bridge ahead of schedule. Already 148 pilots for the bridge have been completed.
