The Repair of Gosposvetska Road Starts In Ljubljana

The traffic along one of the capital’s central streets will be partially limited until 18 August.

The preliminary repair works on the Gosposvetska Road have already begun. Prior to start the complex construction works, the archaeological excavations will also take place. Particular attention will be paid to the intersection of the Gosposvetska and Slovenska roads, where, according to scientists, the graves of the Ancient Roman era are located. It is known that the excavation should not be carried out at the same time with the construction works and will last for 4 months.

“Water supply, sewage, gas pipeline, heating system and street lighting will be repaired. The new appearance of the road after the asphalt laying will resemble the Slovenska road,” the municipality representatives note.

Despite the start of the preparatory works, the contractor for the construction works has not yet been determined. An open tender will be held in the municipality. A construction company winning the tender will carry out all the works planned by the city authorities and the state-owned enterprises Vodovod-Kanalizacija and Energetika Ljubljana.

At the time of repair, the public transport stop Gosposvetska in the direction of the city centre is transferred to the location of the former Kolizej stop.

Earlier it was reported that in the summer, it was planned to start working on the improvement of two central roads of Ljubljana — Slovenska Road and Gosposvetska Road. The Dalmatinova, Kersnikova and Dvoržakova streets will be also put in order. The budget of all works is 5.7 million euros.

Gosposvetska Road is located on the territory, which once was part of the largest Roman cemetery Emona. The northern main highway to the city once ran along the route of the present Slovenska Road. Residents of Emona buried the departed at the beginning of the road, behind the city wall.
