ZAGREB, July 3, 2020 (Hina) – The 660-metre-long Svilaj bridge across the Sava River at the border between Croatia and Bosnia and Herzegovina has been completely built and will be put into use once Bosnia and Herzegovina finish access roads from its side, the Croatia motorway operator (HAC) stated on Friday.
The construction of the bridge, worth 171.8 million kuna, started in 2016.
This is a joint investment of Croatia’s HAC and the relevant authorities in Bosnia and Herzegovina and the project was financed by Croatia and Bosnia and Herzegovina at a ratio of 50:50 with 58% of Croatia’s share part being covered by EU funds from the Connecting Europe Facility (CEF).
The 29-metre-wide bridge has six lanes.
The bridge is on the pan-European Vc corridor route between Budapest via Osijek and Sarajevo to the Croatian seaport in Ploce.
