Tunnel Hranjen, which is located on the road communication between Gorazde and Sarajevo, should be put into operation at the end of the summer of 2021, if everything goes according to the planned dynamics.

The tender for the selection of the best bidder for the construction of this tunnel, which will be six kilometers long, was announced yesterday. Tender will be open until May 21, after which will follow the process of evaluation and decision-making, which will last for about a month.

After that will be conducted preparations for the introduction of contractors on the locality, and the first construction works should start at the end of the summer.

“The total value of the construction of the tunnel amounts to 190 million BAM and the planned deadline for its construction is 36 months. The announced tender refers to the first phase of the construction, i.e. the breakthrough of the tunnel and installation of the supporting facilities, which represents the most important and demanding part of the construction of this type of object. The cost of the construction in the first phase of works amounts to a total of 70 million BAM.”

Specificity of this tunnel is that it will have two tubes, despite containing two lanes for the traffic.

The first conversations about the construction of this tunnel were started in 1968, when the idea of connecting Sarajevo and Gorazde with modern road communication emerged. This story was reactivated again at the beginning of 1980’s, when the railroad was abolished.
