Although the start of construction of the tunnel under Kadinjača has been announced several times, the work has not yet started. Roads of Serbia submitted to the Ministry of Environmental Protection at the end of July request for approval of the Environmental Impact Assessment Study of the Kadinjača pass tunnel construction project, on state road IB row number 28, section Dub – Dubci.

Inspection of this document can be carried out within 20 days from the date of publication, after which it follows public hearing scheduled for September 29the portal eKapija states.

In the Study, among other things, some of the previously announced details about the tunnel itself are mentioned. The tunnel under the Kadinjača mountain will allow the state road 28 to be connected to corridor X, as well as the international road E – 761, and in addition to the function in long-distance traffic, this road communication has an important role in connecting urban centers such as Mali Zvornik, Ljubovija, Bajina Bašta, Užiceas well as in connecting other regional industrial-agricultural centers in Zlatibor and surrounding districts.

The route of the future expressway includes the administrative municipality of Bajina Bašta and the city of Užice. The projected speed of the road is 80 km/h, a the length of the entire section is 6.28 km. The plan is to build 6 bridges in the trunk of the road, reminds eKapija.

The future tunnel section will pass under the Kadinjača pass in a total length of 1,260m, of which about 620m is in the territory of the municipality of Bajina Bašta. From a morphological point of view, the Kadinjača Pass belongs to the range of medium-high peaks, with its highest height of 836m above sea level (Gajin breg).

One tunnel tube will be built for two-way vehicle traffic. The width of the carriageway in the tunnel is Lk = 7.20m.

– Since it is not possible to plan lateral evacuation exits to the open space due to difficult terrain conditions, one evacuation tunnel is planned, parallel to the main tunnel tube for trafficat an axial distance of 30m into which the transverse evacuation passages flow, it is stated in the conceptual project prepared by the Institute for Roads.

In terms of technology, the construction of the tunnel and the evacuation tunnel are carried out partly in open excavation, and partly by tunneling, writes eKapija.

When the works are finished, it is planned to keep the existing route in the function of serving the surrounding settlements, Kadinjača memorial complex and Ponikve airport. The existing route will be connected to the newly designed one in the form of three-way intersections, with possible reconstruction of the existing road in the connection zone, according to the preliminary project.

The beginning of the construction of the tunnel was announced for the spring of 2022, and the value of the investment is around EUR 60 million.
