Federal Minister of Transport and Communications Denis Lasic announced that the new road Stolac – Neum will be fully built and opened in the spring of next year.
“The construction of this section has been promised many times and the residents of Stolac and Neum have watched in disbelief if it will ever be completed. And here, we will finally bring it to an end in about half a year “, said Minister Lasic during the visit of the delegation of the Government of FBiH to the construction site of that road.
According to the director of the Roads of the Federation of BiH, Ljubo Pravdic, out of the total length of 36.5 kilometers, that section is still 10 kilometers away.
“Stolac and Neum will also benefit from the construction of this road. The road will be shortened, it will not go through the Republic of Croatia and there will be benefits for this whole area. Many said in disbelief at the beginning that it was promised for 40 years, but here we are all finished,” said Pravdic.
After the construction of the road Neum – Stolac, the construction of a bypass near Stolac will begin.
“It is a mini bypass that will be 1.3 kilometers long and the deadline for the completion of works after the completion of property-legal relations is about ten months, so we expect that it will be completed by October next year. So, the total length of the section is about 38 kilometers and the total value of the investment is 88 million marks “, said the director of Roads of the Federation of BiH.
