Zagreb - A consortium of the Slovenian company Kolektor CPG and Italy's ICM has won the public tender in Croatia to construct a by-pass road in the coastal town of Novi Vinodolski, the national motorway company Hrvatske Autoceste (HAC) confirmed for the STA on Monday.

The by-pass road that is expected to relieve the local road during the summer season is part of the future Kvarner Bay section of the Zagreb-Split motorway between Rijeka and ┼Żuta Lokva.

The HAC said that the bid by Kolektor CPG and ICM, worth around EUR 63 million, had been the most favourable among the six bids.

The by-pass road will be 9.8 kilometres long, 6.5 kilometres of which is part of the future motorway and the remaining 3.3 kilometres a connection with the Adriatic road near Novi Vinodolski, south east of Rijeka.

The work on the project includes a 834-metre tunnel and a 1,062-metre viaduct, which will be 40 metres high at certain points. The deadline for the completion is 36 months.

A consortium featuring Kolektor CPG, Croatia's GP Krk and Bosnia's Euroasfalt is also building a EUR 61 million road connecting the container terminal of the port of Rijeka with the western part of the local by-pass road.
