On 7th July 2023, a meeting of the heads and mayors of the municipalities and the City of Krk with the Minister of the Sea, Transport and Infrastructure, Oleg Butković, was held in the town hall of the City of Krk, which was also attended by representatives of Hrvatske Ceste and representatives of the Institute for Physical Planning of PGC.

There was a presentation of the conceptual design of the planned road that will pass along the eastern side of the island of Krk, from the turning to Čižići near Omišalj to the junction above Punat, where the state road and the county road from the direction of Vrbnik now join.

The production of the presented conceptual design was preceded by many years of activities, in which the Institute participated. Namely, in 2022 the Institute produced an expert document that analysed in detail the wider coverage of the future road corridor and, with the aim of integrating the road into the space as well as possible, valuable natural areas as well as areas of valuable cultural heritage were recognised with suggestions for better integrating the future road into the network of local roads. 

On the basis of the prepared expert document, a conceptual design for the planned road was developed, followed by the production of changes to the spatial plans of the local self-government units in which the corridor of the future road will be planned.
