BBC Writes About Croatian ''Tunnel to Nowhere'' Absurdity

Even the BBC has picked up on our brilliant tunnel that leads... absolutely nowhere.

The BBC writes that Croats are furious because of the expensive tunnel which leads to nowhere, the same 280 million kuna project we wrote about recently.

As Poslovni Dnevnik writes on the 28th of July, 2018, this ominous tunnel, the construction of which began a full six years ago, was talked up as a ''bombastic'' project worth a massive 280 million kuna, but where exactly does this mysterious tunnel lead? Perhaps another dimension? Or is it a back entrance to the wardrobe Alice from Alice in Wonderland decided to venture into? It seems this enormous amount of cash has been frittered away to a tunnel that leads to the abyss.

This completely and utterely senseless tunnel located above the picturesque Dalmatian town of Omiš, has caught the interest of international media. The BBC has published an article about just one little part of the general absurdity we have to live with on a daily basis. Citing RTL, who published this story just two days ago, the BBC writes that "Croatian taxpayers are angry about the 44 million dollar tunnel that doesn't go anywhere.''

The BBC's text adds that the 1,471-metre tunnel crosses through the mountain above the city and runs above the Cetina canyon. Despite the fact, as the BBC itself writes, that the idea of such a tunnel was initially conceived as a solution to large crowds, it hasn't yet been completed.

The BBC also mentions the words of Omiš's mayor, Ivo Tomasović, who announced an upcoming tender for the construction of a bridge which will connect to the currently totally useless tunnel, and then to the D70 road that leads to Split.

This bypass solution was supposed to be a realistic solution to avoiding overcrowding during the summer months. The 1,471 metre long hole was created, then came the wait for a bridge and a connecting tunnel, and then, just like with most classic Croatian tales of permits and building - the entire thing went stagnant, and has remained so to this very day.

Miraculously, the money disappeared and Omiš locals have now long since had more than a gut full of the ''project''. 

Will the BBC's article be enough to raise the hairs on the necks of any responsible persons? It's unlikely.
