20 February, 2013: Dr Andro Vlahušić, Mayor of the Mediterranean city Dubrovnik, Croatia, describes continuing development of a city road project to help ease traffic congestion between the port and the historic walled centre of the city during the height of the cruise ship tourist season. A grant from the French Government is supporting feasibility studies and promoting the application for EU funding of the project ahead of Croatia's accession to the European Union as a new member nation in July of this year (2013).
