The current course of works
Following the bankruptcy of Cestno podjetje Maribor (CPM), the works are carried on by the Austrian company Alpine Bau which was, according to the basic agreement, CPM’s partner in joint venture. Currently, the works fall behind for four months. The excavation works continue only from the western side (from Izola).
Up until now approx. one third (1/3) of the tunnel has been excavated, namely:
- From the eastern direction: - left tube: 316 m,
- right tube: 327 m.
- From the western direction: - left tube: 860 m,
- right tube: 862 m.
In accordance with the project a primary lining has been implemented in the tunnel. The excavation works are to be concluded by the end of 2011. Currently, the works are four months behind the schedule. The tunnel should open for traffic in March 2013, although according to the latest news this date is questionable. The course of works and the latest changes related to the Markovec tunnel construction are available on the website of DARS.
