long foot said:Hm, I am just reading in Jutarnji that, according to information from Zagreb police department, 80.000 people from other parts of Croatia moved into Zagreb in 2004. This city is going to be like hell in next new years.
long foot said:People move to Zagreb because it is easier to find a job here. Unemployment rate in Zagreb is under 10 %, lower even than in EU, while in Croatia is 17 %. Some statistics say that Zagreb GDP per capita is 19.000 $, while in whole Croatia is about 10.000 %. I mean there is a big difference between Zagreb and rest of Croatia.
I have nothing against pople who move to Zagreb because I wasn't born in Zagreb too. It is good to see city is growing, but we don't have infrastructure for so many people. We need metro, new avenues, highways, rails, residental districts, schools… You know what I mean.
Zagreb has infrastructure for some 600.000 people, but almost 1 million live here. That is the problem.
BTW, it is interesting that, according to informations from Zagreb police depatment, in Zagreb live 30.000 strangers
long foot said:Something like that. Zagreb is developing spontaneously, without any help from Government, while other cities are not so progressive. That is why Government constructed motorways Zagreb – Split, Zagreb – Rijeka and Zagreb – Varaždin in last 4 years. It was the effort of giving a chance to other cities.
I am not sure about Zagreb debt. I know that Croatia's debt is some 25 billion $ :no:
But considering that we had 40 billion $ of direct war demages in Croatia and at least 3 times more undirect damage, our debt is peace of shit.
long foot said:I don't know exact number, but I mentioned some of the most important projects above:
Reconstruction of crossroad Slavonska/Heinzelova
Metro – going thru planning proces
long foot said:No I don't but I will have it very soon. I finally got digital camera and after Christmas and New Year's Day I will take photos of them and post them here.
long foot said:I alredy posted in Sarajevo thread: 1,5 million pasangers in 2003. Rate of growing is some 7-8 % every year. There is a plan of construction of new airport. It will cost some 160 million euros, I am not sure when construction shoud start, maybe in 2005. or 2006.
