It's been more than six months since the old bridge in Ptuj was completely closed to all traffic. Most of the work so far has taken place inside the bridge, explained Bogdan Rojs from Pomgrad. On Friday, the Minister of Infrastructure Peter Gašperšič visited the renovation site and assured that all work was going according to plans.
It is always a question whether or not the renovation could be finished sooner than planned - the deadline for completion is in late September. "If by that you mean this June, it is not possible. It might be possible to shorten it by about a month – perhaps the bridge could be open on the first school day on 1st September or something like that," says Royce.
More about the possibility of an early opening of the bridge will be known in the spring.
