As TMN reported earlier, during the fifth session of the Bijelo Polje Municipal Assembly, the President of the Bijelo Polje Municipality, Petar Smolović, stated that the construction of the Ski Centre Cmiljača, worth 23 million EUR, should be completed by 2022. He also explained that the implementation of the Cmiljača Project consists of two phases. The first phase, which is currently being executed, includes works on the construction of road infrastructure, construction of the base station with accompanying facilities, parking space, construction of electric power network, ski lifts, hydrotechnical and telecommunication infrastructure, about 3 kilometres of ski tracks and the purchase of necessary machinery and equipment. The planned deadline for the completion of the first phase is 2020.
The construction of the electric power infrastructure to power the future cable cars within the ski resorts Cmiljača and Žarski began with the preparation for the installation of the 35/10 substation in Majstorovina in Bijelo Polje.
Preliminary works include construction work, to construct a structure for future power equipment.
The value of this investment, which will be financed by the Government of Montenegro through the capital budget, amounts to more than 1,18 million EUR, and the contractor committed to finishing the works within six months from the beginning of the work, i.e. early next year.
The project is part of the activities that the Government is continuously implementing in order to valorise the tourism potential of the north of the country. The installation of cable cars at ski resorts Cmiljača and Žarski has already been contracted and the estimated value of complete investments in the two sites is more than 52 million EUR.
