Montenegrin prime minister Dusko Markovic visited the construction site of a tunnel through the Bjelasica mountain on the Kolasin-Jezerine-Lubnice-Berane road. He said he was satisfied with the works on this capital infrastructure project that began today. Once the road is finished, the Kolasin-Berane route will be 40km shorter.
“More than €34m has been allocated for the project and it has great economic importance not only for the two municipalities, but for the entire North. The works that started today will include construction of the 2.8km long tunnel, a 150m long bridge and 14.4km road section,” PM said in the Jezerine site.
Markovic said that the Euro-Asfalt company from Bosnia-Herzegovina was a credible contractor, which guaranteed that the project would be completed on time. He added that there was a room for engaging Montenegrin companies as subcontractors as well.
PM also said that this road would provide a new opportunity to valorise potentialities and resources in order to achieve progress both in the region and in the country. Also, the project is part of efforts to improve infrastructure as a condition of development, particularly when it comes to improving tourism capacities.
Asked about the construction of the Bar-Boljare highway priority section, Markovic said he was extremely pleased with the pace of works and spending money allocated for this project, adding that he believes the completion of works on the highway will coincide with the completion of the Jezerine-Lubnice construction works.
