By the summer season at least 37,4 million euro will be allocated, and by the end of the year a total of 117,19 million euro

To construct and repair roads in Montenegro by the beginning of the tourist season, June 15, at least 37,4 million euro will be allocated, and by the end of the year a total of 117,19 million euro, as cited in the proposal for the preparation of the summer tourist season adopted by the government.

The document, prepared by the Transportation Directorate of the Transportation and Administration Ministry, states most works will be complete by the beginning of the season, and those which are not will be put on hold. Exceptions are sections whose completion does not affect the period when most tourists arrive to Montenegro.

“The analysis of provided information concludes that certain districts did not define deadlines or budgets to complete activities,” states the plan prepared by the Ministry for Sustainable Development and Tourism.

By mid-June, a is announced, reconstruction will be complete on eight highways and regional roads in Montenegro, worth 31,88 million euro. This primarily means the Cetinje-Njeguši road, with works valued at 9,55 million euro.

The highway between Cetinje and Budva will see works continue at two sections, Košljun-Zavala worth 1,1 million euro and Brjaići-Lapčići, worth 7,6 million euro, as well as the repair of the slide in Brajići, costing 950,256 euro.

From Slijepač bridge two sections will also be under repair, Crkvice Vrulja towards Trlica for 4,77 million euro and to Pavino Polje for just under a million euro. The Directorate feels that, despite poor weather which has slowed works, these border roads will be ready for the season.
