Svilaj Bridge, a new connection in the Western Balkans

Maeg is taking part in the realization of the Svilaj Bridge crossing the Sava River, on the border between Croatia and Bosnia and Herzegovina.

This two-lanes Bridge is composed of seven spans (70+85+100+130+100+85+70) for a total length of 660 meters. Overall, the weight of the steel structure is more than 5.000 tons, and rests on six concrete pillars, four of which installed in the water.

The realization is part of a global project covering a 10.7 km long cross-border section of motorway A5 (from Sredanci Interchange in Croatia to Odžak, in Bosnia and Herzegovina), part of the European’s connectivity agenda in the Western Balkans. The European Union co-finances the project.

The symbolic first stone of the project has been placed during a ceremony on the 12th of April 2017, attended by the Commissioner for European Neighbourhood Policy and Enlargement Negotiations, Johannes Hahn, and the Chairman of the Council of Ministers of Bosnia and Herzegovina Denis Zvizdic.

Here follows some pictures of the inauguration and of the current status of the work site:
