Port Authority Split Removes 156 Illegal Berths
The Ministry of Maritime Affairs, Transport and Infrastructure launched an action on August 25, aiming to remove 138 mooring buoys and 16 pieces of anchoring gear that were installed without a permit at 17 locations in the area supervised by the Port Authority Split.
Based on the inspection that was carried out at the anchorage sites, it’s been established that the mooring buoys have been installed illegally, meaning that no concession contracts have been signed before they were set up. The Port Authority Split issued an order for their immediate removal.
The action is carried out by the Port Authority Split and its competent branch offices, in collaboration with a Croatian company that specialises in operations on underwater infrastructure. Buoys will be removed at the City port in Split and in 15 bays located on the islands of Brač, Biševo, Vis, Hvar, and Šćedro.
