ZAGREB, 1 February (Hina) – Work on the public water supply infrastructure of the Split-Solin urban agglomeration began in Srinjine on Monday, a project worth about HRK 1.8 billion.
The plan is to build 124 kilometres of drainage network and 64 kilometres of water supply network by the end of 2023. As part of this project, work began today on the 3.7-km-long drainage network in Srinjine, which will cost about HRK 15 million.
Economy and Sustainable Development Minister Tomislav Ćorić said that this was one of the vital infrastructure projects in Split-Dalmatia County, announcing similar works across the country.
“Works worth about HRK 25 billion are planned across the country in the time ahead,” Ćorić said, adding that this was a big challenge for the construction sector and utility companies that would be in charge of these projects.
The director general of the state-owned Hrvatske Vode water management company, Zoran Đuroković, said that a tender for a wastewater treatment plant would be advertised soon, which would serve 275,000 residents in the area.
