The construction of the international Adriatic-Ionian highway, which will connect Montenegro, Croatia, Bosnia and Herzegovina and Albania, will attract significant transit flows.
The priority section of this highway will be a detour around the popular resort town of Budva, which, if everything goes according to plan, will be open during 2021, according to the Ministry of Transport of Montenegro.
Significant financial assistance was received from the European Union for the construction of the Adriatic-Ionian Highway. Thanks to the mechanism of Investment structures for the Western Balkans, Montenegro has already received about 9.5 million euros.
First of all, it is a feasibility study for the construction of the Adriatic-Ionian Highway through Montenegro and Albania. This study should be completed in the first quarter of next year. Thus, we will have those economic indicators that are important for us and for the further implementation of this highway, said Angelina Zivkovich from the Montenegro Ministry of Transport.
The expressway in Montenegro will have four bypass routes around Herceg Novi, Tivat, Budva and Bar. At the moment, priority is given to the construction of a bypass road in the Budva area, because now there is already a serious amount of automobile traffic, namely, the average annual daily traffic on the road reaches 12,000 vehicles, which fully justifies the priority construction of a bypass highway.
The Ministry of Transport of Montenegro expects that if everything goes according to plan, the construction of a bypass road around Budva can begin as early as 2021.
