Croatia picks consortium of Chinese companies to build 2.1 bln kuna (281.7 mln euro) bridge Aradic-es/CC by SA 3.0

ZAGREB (Croatia), January 12 (SeeNews) - Croatia's state-owned motorway operator Hrvatske Ceste said on Friday it has picked a consortium of companies led by China Road and Bridge Corporation for the construction of Peljesac bridge at a price of 2.1 billion kuna ($341.3 million/281.7 million euro).

The consortium consists also of CCCC Highway Consultants Co. Ltd., CCCC Second Highway Engineering Co. Ltd. and CCCC Second Harbour Engineering Co. Ltd., Hrvatske Ceste said in a statement.

"The offer was evaluated according to the criteria as the most economically advantageous, and amounts to 2,081,608,270.72 kuna (excluding VAT)," the company noted.

The deadline for the completion of works is 36 months.

Croatia received a total of three bids under the tender.

Peljesac bridge will connect the peninsula by the same name and the rest of mainland Croatia over the Adriatic, providing an alternative route to crossing the Neum Corridor - a strip of the Adriatic coastline in Bosnia and Herzegovina between these two parts of Croatia.

The Peljesac bridge will be 55 m high and 2.4 km long, with four lanes.
