07 May 2019 - The Government of Montenegro, through the Capital Budget, allocated around 700.000 EUR for the construction of a primary electricity infrastructure for the needs of supplying the Đalovića cave complex in the municipality of Bijelo Polje. The contract was signed by the Public Works Administration and the Danilovgrad-based company "Eurozoks".
The deadline for the completion of works is five months from the date of the contractor's introduction into the work.
The route consists of about 6,100 meters of 35 kV air-line and about 360 meters of underground cable.
The planned transmission line connects the electricity infrastructure of the existing electricity substation 35/10 Nedakusi and planned electricity substation 35/10 Bistrica. In addition to providing infrastructure for the future complex of the Podvrh Monastery, the cable car and the Đalovića cave, this investment will also contribute to a significantly more reliable and better quality of electricity supply for households in this area.
In this way, the investment in valorizing the tourist capacities of the Đalovića cave will directly affect the quality of life of the citizens of that part of the municipality of Bijelo Polje.
The Đalovića cave was included in the local programme of the Bijelo Polje municipality in 2019, which includes spatial planning in Bijelo Polje and which is estimated at 22.030.181 EUR, mostly for the continuation of works on the valorization of the mountain Bjelasica (4.120.000 EUR) and Đalovića cave (3.450.000 EUR), as well as the construction of a waste treatment plant, (1.169.834 EUR).
