A Chinese consortium has won the bid for the construction of the $340 million Peljesac bridge in Croatia, which will connect the city of Dubrovnik with the rest of the country.

The consortium is state-owned by China Road and Bridge Corporation, and the project itself is the first to be funded by the European Union and built by a Chinese company.

Contract Award

The contract was awarded in an announcement on Friday (Jan. 12), when Harvatske Ceste (Croatian Roads) announced that the bid from the consortium was the cheapest of the three, with others being offered by Austrian construction company Strabag and an Italian-Turkish consortium.

The cable-stayed span will be roughly a mile and a half long and 180 feet tall, crossing Mali Ston Bay over the Adriatic Sea, noted the GB Times.

“We believe this project will effectively promote bilateral pragmatic cooperation between China and Croatia and tripartite cooperation between the two countries and the EU,” said Chinese foreign ministry spokesperson Lu Kang.

The European Union will pay up to 85 percent of the construction costs. The bridge is slated for completion in three years.

Bidding was opened in September 2017.
