EC grants Slovenia EUR 63mn for motorway towards Croatia

The European Commission has granted Slovenia EUR 63.5 million from the EU's Cohesion Fund for the construction of a 13-kilometre-long section of motorway from the village of Drazenci to the Gruskovje/Macelj border crossing with Croatia, the Slovenian Embassy in Brussels confirmed on Friday.

Construction work is to start this summer and is expected to be completed by mid-2018. The project is estimated at EUR 250 million.

This should eliminate traffic bottlenecks that form along the route from the Spielfeld/Sentilj border crossing between Austria and Slovenia to Macelj, especially during the summer tourist season.
