Having carried out the design and construction of phases 1A, 1B and 2A of the Istrie motorway between 1997 and 2011, Bouygues Travaux Publics, an affiliate of Bouygues Construction, was selected to deliver phase 2B1 of the project, including the widening of the lanes to a 2x2 format in the toll road section between Rogovići in the west of the peninsula and Vranja in the east.

A situation that contributes to threatening certain resources with scarcity, or even shortage, in the medium to long term.
