Contract signed for the Žabica project
27. March 2008
Mayor of Rijeka Vojko Obersnel and Silvije Novak from Studio 3LHD signed a contract for delivery of project documentation for the area of the bus terminal Zapadna Žabica. The project plan will be delivered by November 2008 and works will begin in the first quarter of 2009 upon delivery of the complete project documentation.
The project for the new bus station Zapadna Žabica in Rijeka was chosen through a public tender at the end of 2005 and Studio 3LHD won the first prize. The new bus station will consist of three parts: a bus terminal with 18 platforms, a garage for buses and facilities for travelers, above-ground several stories high and a 25,000 m2 garage with 900 parking spaces and a 10,000 m2 business-commercial area. This project provides a central "pedestrian island" that allows easy access to the platforms without interfering with traffic. In addition, the project enables removal of all parking spaces from the waterfront and thus completely surrenders it to the pedestrians.
