The Construction of the ferry port in Tkon is proceeding according to the plan, not deviating from the set deadlines, despite the coronavirus pandemic. The first port infrastructure project in Croatia co-funded by the European Union through the Operational Programme “Competitiveness and Cohesion” has been moving forward, in accordance with the obligatory epidemiological measures currently in place due to the extraordinary circumstances.
The existing ferry port in Tkon on the island of Pašman is being reconstructed, with the port plateau for loading and unloading vehicles being built to include three waiting lanes, as well as an additional lane for emergency vehicles. An undersea passage is being built to enable the free circulation of seawater between the inner and outer port waters, as well as a waiting zone, parking plateau and a bus stop. Once the project is completed, by the end of 2021 at the latest, the safety, capacity, and quality of transportation on the state ferry line Biograd-Tkon will increase for both local inhabitants, and their guests. It is expected that this project will lead to a significant decrease in traffic jams and waiting times during peak periods, as well as an increase in the quality of life and availability of different facilities for islanders.
