By 26 March 2019

ZAGREB, March 26, 2019 - Prime Minister Andrej Plenković visited the northern coastal city of Rijeka and the Brajdica terminal which is currently under reconstruction, an investment that is valued at some 30 million euro, and there he expressed his satisfaction with investments in key infrastructure for the Rijeka area.

Plenković visited the construction site of the Rijeka - Brajdica railway station and the construction of an intermodal terminal, a project that is being jointly implemented by the Rijeka Port Administration and the HŽ Infrastruktura railway operator and 85% of the project or 30.2 million euro is being financed from the Connecting Europe Facility.

"We also visited the Brajdica terminal, one of the projects valued at some 30 million euro of all the current investments in port, railway and road infrastructure in Rijeka that are worth as much as 200 million euro," Plenković told reporters.

The intermodal terminal being reconstructed at Brajdica is valued at 36 million euro.

Plenković added that in about three years' time Rijeka would have new capacities and that it would resolve one of its more expensive road problems which will connect the terminal with the motorway in a much faster and simpler way than now, he underscored.

The connecting road should be completed in about 30 months' time and is valued at about 70 million euro and a call for bids will be advertised in April, Minister of the Sea, Transport and Infrastructure Oleg Butković announced recently.

"We are satisfied with these investments that will make Rijeka not just the European capital of culture next year and will put Croatia on the cultural map of Europe but also it will significantly strengthen all key infrastructure facilities and services that strengthen the economy and quality of life for Rijeka residents and everyone who lives in Primorje-Gorski Kotar County and from two other counties who come here frequently," Plenković said.
