You are right. To many pics for just one page. I edited some of my posts from the last page. Maybe it helps a bit.



Krk Bridge is a 1430 m long reinforced concrete arch bridge connecting the Croatian island of Krk to the mainland and carrying over a million vehicles per year. The longer of the bridge's two arches is the second longest concrete arch in the world and among the longest arches of any construction. The bridge was completed and opened in 1980.

This bridge is almost Bosnian. (ok, Herzegovinian :P) Just kidding, it will be good to have sth like that in this region, now all we have to wait is 4 years. Congratulations on the masterpiece bridge!

I never really thought construction would begin so soon! I was expecting for construction to start in 5-10 years from now. Then again, I'm accustomed to the Romanian way of doing things, not the Croatian one Your government(s) are really serious about building modern infrastructure for your country.

Is that bridge neccesary due to large amounts of traffic to that peninsula? or is it bc the E65 crosses borders (may be a fproblem when Croatia enters the EU) ?

there is not that much traffic and the bridge is not refundable. but it's the only way to revitalize that part of country and we are all allready sick of passing that stupid border while traveling to Dubrovnik. and especially people from that region - they often travel to Split (which is regional centre). and we cannot expect to enter Schengen zone so soon, and especially we cannot expect BIH to do that

Though I still don't get it: why don't they change the route of the future section of A1 Split - Dubrovnik, so that it crosses the bridge?

The bridge will be 2x1? Or a motorway?

2x1 or 2x2, we still don't know. i heard some stories about 2x1 in the beginning, and later if traffic becomes more intense, there is enough space to make it 2x2. why not from the beginning - i don't know. i guess it depends about rest of that road - we still don't know profile of it. if it is gonna be 2x1, there is no reason for bridge to be wider

But the motorway from Split to Dubrovnik will go through Bosnian territory then? Not going to use that bridge to bypass Bosnia, right?

When is that part (Split-dubrovnik) of the A1 going to be built? And what are they going to do regarding the Bosnian part of it?

there are yet not detailed plans about A1 after Ploce, it will be announced when croatian plan of building motorways in period 2009-2012 comes out (we should gte it in few weeks).
motorway will go threw Neum (BIH), but expressway will go around Neum accross the bridge, so i guess it will hold majority of transit traffic to avoid that unneccessary border

You can also build a motorway through Bosnia without exists in that short Bosnian strip. We used to have the Dutch N274 through German territory. Exiting was impossible in the pre-schengen era.

That way, you'll avoid high costs because of a reroute around the strip, and the Bosnian can use your ports for trade as a deal.

Ofcourse, Bosnian might want to enter the A1 too, but you can let them cross a normal border before entering the A1. It looks to me, the major flows (Croatian traffic) can go uninterrupted, and the smaller flows (Bosnia to A1) has to cross a border checkpoint.

Or they can also make an exit in B&H and put border crossing on it. But Croats don't want that.

Yes, putting the border crossin just on the exit (just like a toll barrier, just for those exiting and entering the motorway) would be a good idea.
