“Minister of Sea, Transport and Infrastructure Oleg Butković said on Monday that the rejection of the appeal to the works contractor for the construction of the Peljesac Bridge was positive news and step forward and announced that he would expect to sign a bridge construction contract in 15 days, which will take about three years to build.

This decision is a positive news. We are definitely a step ahead of the construction of the Peljesac Bridge, because the last obstacle after which a construction contract can be signed is overcome, which will take place in about 15 days, Butković said.

He said that the decision confirmed that the tender for bridge construction was legitimate and transparent and that merging the Croatian territories with the Peljesac Bridge would not be questioned.” (translated from N1)
