Dynamic load testing began on the Pelješac bridge last Thursday. 20 trucks weighing 40 tons were used to conduct the load test.

The objective was to show whether the behavior of the bridge structure under moving and stationary load is in accordance with the designed values.

Upon completion of the load testing, a technical inspection of the bridge follows. The extension is intended to open to deal starting June onwards, after completion of access roads.
