September 13 (SeeNews) - The Croatian government said it has agreed with the government of neighbouring Bosnia and Herzegovina on the reconstruction of the Brcko-Gunja bridge which connects the two countries across the Sava river.
Following this agreement, Croatian state road management company Hrvatske Ceste will soon call a tender for the preparation of the project with view of starting the actual works next year, Croatian transport minister Oleg Butkovic said in a press release on Tuesday.
According to another press release published on the Croatian government’s website, the value of the works is estimated at some 4 million euro ($4.3 million).
The bridge, which was was built in 1894, was closed for cargo traffic four years ago due to its its poor state, raising the cost of transport of goods to and from Bosnia’s Brcko district and the Serb Republic to European Union member Croatia.
In 2022, Butkovic said that that the two countries will cover in equal shares the costs to repair the bridge and will build a new one near it.
Bosnia’s transport minister Edin Forto also discussed with Butkovic an option to restore railway service between Zagreb and Bosnia’s capital Sarajevo, he said as seen in a video by Bosnian broadcaster BHRT.
