ZAGREB (Croatia), July 15 (SeeNews) - Croatia's transport ministry said on Monday it will sign a 19.5 million euro ($22 million) deal for the construction of a bridge on the Sava river with a consortium comprising Bosnia's Integral Inzenjering and Croatia's Djuro Djakovic Montaza and Zagreb Montaza.

The deal for the bridge, connecting the two countries over the Sava river near Gradiska in Bosnia, is being awarded by the ministry and Croatian motorways operator Hrvatske Ceste, the ministry said on its website, adding that the contract will be signed on July 16.

The construction of the Sava river bridge represents the first stage of a project to build a 20 km motorway section between the Croatian village of Okucani and the border with Bosnia. The section will be part of a high-speed motorway connecting Croatia's border with Hungary in the north with the Bosnian border in the south.

Bosnia and Croatia have launched two separate tenders under the project, with Croatia in charge of hiring a contractor for the Sava bridge and Bosnia heading the search for a construction works supervisor. 

The project is part of the Indicative Extension of the TEN-T (Trans-European Transport) Core Network in the Western Balkans.
