Tourism in Central Dalmatia is booming, and nowhere is busier than the Dalmatian capital of Split. In order to meet the growing demand of an increasing number of visitors, there have been several major infrastructure upgrades in recent years, with more on the way.
The new airport terminal is scheduled for opening this summer, which follows the completion of the expanded connecting road to the city. A new bus station is underway and a light rail network has been introduced.
There are changes on the city’s roads as well, with some major changes in the traffic flow starting this week, with the aim of improving the current traffic situation. The City of Split has released this video below to explain the major changes.
The biggest announcement is an entirely one-way Zvonimirova Street, completely one-way traffic through the City Port, with no turn to Zagrebacka Street from the direction of the Port.
Thus, Zvonimirova street, just like last year, will be one-way, and four lanes will continue toward the city harbour. However, exiting the port will take place in only one direction, via Bacvice bridge. The lanes at the bus station are now turned the opposite direction, considering all buses will travel to Jadranska Street.
Furthermore, there will be a big bus stop at Gat Svetog Duje instead of the current roundabout and four new disabled parking places, and a new bus stop at Bijankinijeva Street. The flow of traffic will also change below the Koteks skyscraper.
