About Bridges and Viaducts

Third Guards Brigade 'Kune' Bridge
The A5 Highway on the Beli Manastir - Osijek - Svilaj (r. Sava) route, a component of the C5 branch of the European network carrying the following mark: E73, which is located on the west side of the city of Osijek, near Petrijevci, was supposed to bridge the Drava River and its inundation area. So as not to create a barrier to the future expansion of Osijek, as well as to the possibility of building a hydroelectric power plant on the r. Drava, as a result of a process of choosing a crossing project solution, a bridge with a total length of 2,485 (2,507) m and access viaducts was created. What is interesting is that the Drežnik viaduct near Karlovac is the same length as the "Kune" Bridge, so these two objects share the first place in Croatia with regards to their size. By comparison, the Pelješac Bridge is 2,440 m long.
