October 2023 marked a significant milestone for Croatia’s strategic infrastructure. The state road DC403, stretching from the Škurinje junction to the Port of Rijeka, has officially opened to traffic! This project is more than just a road; it’s a vital artery connecting Croatia’s future Zagreb Deep Sea container terminal with the national highway network. The impact of this endeavour cannot be understated. Not only does it enhance the competitiveness of the Port of Rijeka, but it also paves the way for the flourishing development of Rijeka and the Primorje Gorski Kotar County.
The project value is approximately 67 million euros, while 85% of it was co-financed by European funds. The project’s highlights include the construction of the impressive Podmurvice tunnel, extending 1263 meters beneath urban settlements, the Mlaka viaduct spanning 144 meters, the Piopi viaduct at 316 meters in length, two innovative roundabouts, and the intersection of Zvonimirova Street.

Our experts tackled technical, legal, and economic challenges with precision and determination, ensuring the project’s success and its far-reaching benefits to the community.
