One of the most complex, and also spectacular constructions of an infrastructure facility in Croatia is currently in progress in the Dalmatian town of Omiš.
The Omiš bypass road project includes the construction of the Stobreč – Dugi Rat – Omiš fast road and the building of a 216 metre bridge connecting two tunnels.
The project will help alleviate traffic issues on the busy Split-Omiš route.
One of the most complex parts of the project is the construction of a bridge over the canyon of the Cetina river which will connect the new Komorjak tunnel with the existing Omiš tunnel.
So far, 25 meters of the bridge have been built and when it is complete it will provide stunning views over the town of Omiš for commuters.
All the works on the bypass road are expected to be completed by the end of 2025.
The town of Omiš is located on a narrow belt between the mainland and the mountains, along the mouth of the Cetina river which makes this an extremely difficulty project.
This week Hrvatske Ceste released a video (below) to show how works are progressing.
