Abolishment of Krk bridge toll officially marked
An agreement was signed during the ceremony for the reconstruction of the bridge, to be conducted over the next two years.
Butkovic said the decision to abolish the bridge toll required extensive negotiations with financial institutions due to the overall debt of the road sector. The government decided to merge the ARZ and Hrvatske Ceste (HAC) road management companies, which resulted in savings and enabled the abolishment of the bridge toll, he said.
The minister also announced the construction of an arterial road on Krk to relieve some of the congestion on the island.
Minister Cappelli said that abolishing the bridge toll and keeping the winter price of road tolls and for ferry transport was exceptionally important for tourism on Kvarner islands in the northern Adriatic, particularly for domestic tourists.
