The excavation of the last tunnel on the access roads of the Pelješac Bridge has been completed
The 1290 meter long Supava Tunnel was successfully breakthrough at the beginning of November this year.
The tunnel is part of the Ston bypass, part of the access road to the Peljesac Bridge, which is expected to open in June 2022. The tunnel is a part of the construction of the 2nd section of the access roads to the Pelješac Bridge.
Its southern entrance facing the Ston Channel is now overlooking its twin, the Polakovica tunnel, which was breakthrough in July this year. The Ston bypass route leads from the tunnel to the Ston bridge, and then straight to another tunnel.
Both tunnels are part of the bypass of the town of Ston which is part of the access road to the Peljesac Bridge, currently under construction for more than a year.
The excavation of the Supava tunnel, the last tunnel on the access roads, took 13 months. The works started in October last year.
The works continue, after the excavation, on the main and service tunnel pipes, construction of cross-connections, and construction of the sewer system.
The contract for the construction of the Ston bypass was signed In October 2019 and work began in December of the same year. The contractors are Greece-based AVAX S.A.
The construction works on this bypass are expected to be completed by mid-2022.
