The Omis bypass is a component of the multimodal platform project for the Split agglomeration and stands as one of the most significant infrastructure endeavours in the Split-Dalmatia region, involving a total investment of 90 million euro ($98 million), Institut IGH said in a press release on Monday, after the official opening of the bypass. Institut IGH has provided supervision services for the project.

Hrvatske Ceste launched the project in 2007, aiming to alleviate traffic congestion in the centre of Omis.

The bypass project included the development of new roads spanning 3.7 kilometres in total length, alongside access roads to tunnels spanning 544 metres. Additionally, it involved the construction of the 600-metre-long Komorjak North tunnel, the 1,470-metre-long Omis tunnel, a 220-metre-long Brzet tunnel, and the erection of a 225-metre bridge spanning the Cetina River.

The construction works of the bridge and the tunnels were carried out by local civil engineering company Viadukt and the local unit of Austrian builder Strabag.

Shares in Institut IGH last traded on Monday, ending 4.17% higher at 12.50 euro.
