One of the most dangerous blackspots on the main coastal road from Dubrovnik to the airport will soon have a safer passage for pedestrians. In the village of Mlini, in the borough of Zupa, a section of road with bus stops on either side is the main route for pedestrians to get to the beach.
Over the last few years this region has been becoming more and more popular with foreign guests and the number of private apartments has grown. This has meant this small section of road has hundreds of tourists, often with young children, taking their lives in their hands trying to run across this busy road.
The Municipality of Zupa have announced that a subway will now be built under main road in Mlini and that this should be finished by 2019. The Municipality has apparently reacted to a public demand as well as pressure from the Traffic Safety Association. The association reacted that they are “extremely satisfied with the cooperation with the municipality.”
After making all the necessary documentation the subway is expected to be constructed in 2019.
