Motorway access to Neum within 18 months
Neum, Bosnia's only town on the Adriatic coast, will be connected with the other parts via expressway within 18 months, thanks in part to a €173m loan provided by the World Bank, the EIB and the EBRD. The portion of the road connecting Stari Neum and Babin dol was completed recently, from where a new tunnel is to be built near the town of Ostrovac. Work is already underway on additional tunnels needed to complete the route, including a 975 meter one under the Zaba mountain in southern Bosnia. Work is also set to start soon on a section from Drenovac to Stolovo.
