The Public Company for the Management of Marine Property of Montenegro has begun work on landscaping and paving the existing footpath behind Jaz beach in Budva.
The footpath will be 380 metres long, and between five and six metres wide, and will run from the Posejdon Hotel beach to the Kunjić house.
“The walkway will be paved with terracotta-colour prefabricated concrete blocks, with drainage and curb edges. As part of the landscaping, the existing coastal wall along the beach will be rebuilt, with seating and waste bins installed, bollards to prevent vehicle access as well as horticultural landscaping along the footpath.
Currently, earthworks and removal of the concrete surface are taking place on the walkway, alongside parallel work on installing water and telecoms connections sub-surface. This work is being carried out by ‘Vodovod i kanalizacija Budva and M:tel’,” reports JP Marine Property.
They add that towards the end of the works, lampposts and street lighting would be reinstalled, with two-power lyre lighting and led bulbs.
The contractor for the project is Incom of Podgorica, with a completion date of February 2020. The Public Company has earmarked 150,000 euros for the work.
Upon completion of the public procurement process, a contract will be signed in the coming days on a design for an extension of the walkway to the mouth of the river at the western end of the beach.
