After the completion of the works, the tunnel will become a tourist attraction where various cultural, entertainment, educational and other programs will be held. For all older generations to whom the stairs from Mesnička, Duga ulica and Tkalčićeva have become an obstacle, an elevator will be dug to reach Vranicani’s meadow, which, as the mayor emphasized, will be good for caterers from Gornji grad.”The second phase is the search for a vertical exit to the Upper Town. One solution is Gradec, the other Vranicani’s meadow, we still have to agree. The third phase is to ‘iron’ Radićeva Street “Concluded the first man of the city of Zagreb, Milan Bandić at the opening of the works. The Grič tunnel, which connects Mesnička Street with Radićeva Street in Zagreb’s Upper Town, will open in two months for tourists and citizens. The 350-meter-long tunnel connects Mesnička and Radićeva streets, was built in the 40s and is parallel to Ilica, which has four exits, which are also planned to open to the public as a new tourist attraction.”The works on the Grič Tunnel will take place in three phases. The first is to do what is needed for security reasons, so that people can pass from Radićeva 19 to Mesnička, ie Streljačka. We have four side exits to Ilica. Three are now able to open, and for the fourth we will negotiate with the tenants, as it exits into their backyard. We will slowly talk humanely, negotiate, until we agree. We won’t do anything by force. This will take two months. If we do not agree, then we will go to legal means to resolve it, but again in a nice way. ” Milan Bandić, the mayor of the city of Zagreb, points out and adds thatTunnel rehabilitation project manager Ivica Blažun explained that the works will last 60 days and that the tunnel lining will be repaired, the floor will be repaired, the drainage system will be renovated, drainage will be repaired, new electricity and public address installations will be installed, the exits to Ilica will be repaired. entrance to the tunnel, according to historical matrices Photo: Zagreb.hrAs part of the new tourist attraction, there will also be a “Museum of Sense”, which is applied for EU funds, in which, using screens, projections and holograms, spaces will be created for the presentation of content from Zagreb’s history.
