The Croatian government plans to implement a EUR 1.2bn dam project within the next ten years, completely changing the landscape of the Sava river flow through the capital Zagreb, news agency HINA reported, quoting economy minister Radimir Cacic as saying. The project aims to build a dam near Zagreb's western section of Precko and a new canal that would ensure Savas peaceful flow and stable water levels in Zagreb. The area around the Sava river will be turned into urban spaces with business, recreational, cultural and residential facilities and government offices. The government and its institutions will move to the new buildings, which will be built in a private-public partnership. The annual benefits from the project are estimated at EUR 84.8mn. The project will be presented by the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development in mid-May.
