Minister Butković: The construction of the Pelješac Bridge is expected to begin in the fall

first_imgThe total value of the works is estimated at more than 420 million Euros, and the ministry expects that around 360 million Euros will be non-refundable funds. “That decision is up to the European Commission. If this is not the case, the Republic of Croatia will participate in the missing gap”, Said Butković and removed the connection between the construction of the bridge and the elections, and added that the Pelješac Bridge is a priority of this Government, that previous governments worked on it and that there is a consensus of all political parties on its construction.Photo: Vlada.hrAs for the works so far, all contracts with previous contractors have been terminated as well as the supervision contract. What still needed to be clarified this year was the issue of safe passage, a right that neighboring Bosnia and Herzegovina has. This was discussed at a meeting held by Minister Butković in June last year with the Minister of Transport from Bosnia and Herzegovina. He submitted documentation to him, which shows that a joint commission was formed in 2007 and that all the technical characteristics that needed to be met by BiH were implemented in this project. “There are no more doubts and the project can go further,” he said. The Minister stressed that the entire project, which consists of three phases, should be completed by 2021, and if there will be no complaints, the start of construction of the bridge should be in autumn 2017. After the 21st session of the Government of the Republic of Croatia, the press conference was held by the Minister of the Sea, Transport and Infrastructure Oleg Butković and the Minister of Construction and Physical Planning Lovro Kuščević.After the Government of the Republic of Croatia made a decision on financing the project “Road connection with southern Dalmatia”, Which includes the construction of the Peljesac Bridge, Minister Butković explained the details related to the project. This is a project that includes three phases, and one of those phases is the construction of the Peljesac Bridge, one of the most important infrastructure projects in the Republic of Croatia, said the Minister, and added “Now we have reached a serious stage to start the construction of this large infrastructure project this year, so the Government has made a decision to finance the Peljesac Bridge.“. The total value of all three phases is 420.334.596,00 Euros and these funds, by the decision of the Government, will be provided by the Ministry through 5 budget years. The mentioned phases are: construction of the bridge, construction of access roads and the third phase of the Ston bypass.At the moment, two processes are underway for the Pelješac Bridge; the first process – the tender for the selection of contractors, (two stages of the tender: first stage; legal, financial and technological capabilities of bidders, the second stage; determining the price of the Peljesac Bridge.) and the second process, which involves the application of so-called. major project according to the EC. We remind you that at the end of December last year, the Ministry of the Sea, Transport and Infrastructure received a JASPERS certificate, that the project was well prepared and that the application was in order.Construction of the Peljesac Bridge is expected to begin in the fallRegarding the start of works, Minister Butković announced that they expect the start of construction of the Pelješac Bridge in the fall, after the selection of the contractor, and stressed that the tenders are in two stages. “We are now at the end of the first, if there are no complaints, by June we will have a contractor for the Peljesac BridgeHe said. When asked by a journalist about a case in which investors want to invest in maritime property or port infrastructure and cannot get money from banks because they cannot register as owners, Minister Kuščević answered that the position is clear: “Maritime property is a common good and inalienable owned by the Republic of Croatia. There is no talk of it being privatized or sold. Concession approvals, short-term and multi-year, – yes. Because we have to start using our resources, and so the maritime good. But in accordance with the plan and the law. So it’s a concession, not ownership. “last_img read more

Shocker: Referees ask NFF to hire foreign coach for Super Eagles

first_imgThe President of the Nigeria Referees Association, Tade Azeez, on Friday, urged the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF), to hire a foreign coach to re-position the Super Eagles.He said that hiring a foreign coach was the only way for the NFF “since indigenous coaches cannot separate coaching from business’’.Azeez said that indigenous coaches usually had their biases for some players, making such players to feature in tournaments, not minding the implication for the team.“If the board believes they can get a foreigner that will work very well and they know that they have a way of paying the salaries without affecting them, I support the agitation for a foreign coach.“This is because our indigenous coaches cannot separate their coaching abilities from business.“They are all businessmen, who have interest in one player or the other and because they want to make money, they force such players on Nigerians.“That has been the problem with them. “ They are not after the best players representing us and I think as professionals, they should be able to differentiate between coaching and business. I doubt if any of them can do that,’’Azeez said. The Super Eagles have been without a substantive coach since the sudden resignation of Sunday Oliseh.On April 20, the NFF named a Technical Director, Shaibu Amodu, and Salisu Yusuf to take charge of the Super Eagles on interim basis.The duo are expected to lead the Eagles to two international friendly matches against Mali and Luxembourg’s national teams on May 27 and June 1, respectively.Yusuf is to take charge of the team, while Amodu is to supervise.To assist the duo are the coach of Rangers International FC of Enugu, Imama Amapakabo, and Kennedy Boboye, the coach of Abia Warriors FC of Umuahia.Aloy Agu remains the goalkeeper trainer.The match against Mali is to take place at Stade Robert Diochon in Rouen, France, while Luxembourg will host the Eagles in Luxembourg.last_img read more
