Croatia to restructure two motorway operators.

By bne IntelliNews August 6, 2012
Croatias transport minister Sinisa Hajdas Doncic plans to spin off the toll collection and motorway maintenance business from motorway operators Hrvatske Ceste (HAC) and Autocesta Rijeka-Zagreb (ARZ) by end-2012 and then merge the units into one company in early 2013, HINA news agency reported. The new company will manage about 1,050km motorways and will employ some 3,000 workers. The restructuring plan envisages a decrease in the number of employees of the new company, which will reach to 2,912 by end-2013, 2,823 by end-2014 and 2,711 by end-2015. The decrease in the number of workers will contribute to the reduction of the ratio of 2.86 employees per kilometre of motorway in 2012 to the average 2.58 employees per kilometre in 2015, which is near the European average. HAC will retain 200 employees, while ARZ will retain 170 workers. The motorway operators may be merged in one company, which is to work on the development of new projects in road and railway infrastructure and infrastructure for air and sea traffic.
