Supetar has been asking for the introduction of an additional ferry line for years due to traffic jams, Jadrolinija has not responded

November 18, 2020 0 Comments

first_imgThe island of Brac is an island and the only connection between the island and the mainland is the ferry line. Accordingly, in order for tourists to be able to come to the island of Brac, they must use the ferry from Split to Supetar.I know a stupid statement, but unfortunately it’s important to point that out once again, no matter how funny it may be. However, as the number of tourist arrivals on the island of Brač grew, so did the infrastructure, so the capacity of the ferry that regularly transports guests from the mainland to the island of Brač did not increase.In the combination of poorer infrastructure and too small regular lines that connect Split and the island of Brač, big crowds have been created towards the island and Split for years. Sometimes even tourists in cars have to wait for more than three ferry arrivals to board a ferry to Split, which is frustrating to say the least and has a bad effect on tourism. However, the city of Supetar is aware of the problem, and through the Municipal Company GRAD doo, which is owned by the city of Supetar, they have been increasing the number of employees in the port and traffic wardens for years, and investing in traffic infrastructure as much as possible.However, as they care about solving the problem and the nervousness and frustration of the guests, since 2016 they have been writing to Jadrolinija to try to solve the problem together, but without the right answer and obvious will to try to alleviate the problem. So recently, they again sent a request to Jadrolinija to try to solve the problem together. “I don’t know how many times we want to inform you about the growing problem of traffic jams in the port of Supetar, caused by the impossibility of all vehicles to board the ferry to Split in adequate time. Namely, as you should know best, in recent years there has been a constant increase in the number of vehicles and passengers in the ferry port Supetar and they are “former” exclusively weekend crowds and for the whole week in the period from July 15 to August 31 and even and by mid-September.”Points out Marijana Šemanović in a statement and request to Jadrolinija, director of the Utility Company GRAD doo and adds that congestion leads to total traffic collapse, resentment and nervousness of tourists as well as negative images for the island of Brac, Supetar and the entire Croatian tourism.As their proposal, they propose the introduction of an additional sailing date for the ferry line 631 Split – Supetar in the period from 15.07 to 31.08. As well as the introduction of emergency lines as needed when crowds are created, and in the whole story due to crowds the regular line is delayed by half an hour or more which further complicates the whole situation because people are late for work and tourists on flights. Also, in Supetar, they have been appealing for years to extend the summer timetable, so that they can extend the tourist season. However, as they point out in the Jadrolinija press release, they do not listen to problems or answer inquiries, except for oral ones.How to develop tourism or extend the season if there are not enough regular ferry lines? Who would want to go back to the island of Brač more crazy and lose half a day waiting on the road just to get to the mainland (where a new crowd is waiting for him again)?All this is another proof of our spontaneous development of tourism, and Jadrolinija, as a state-owned company and a monopolist, must react. Ultimately, the introduction of an additional ferry or emergency line is cost-effective because at least one more ferry would be full. There is management and organization, just for things like this, and on the other hand I wonder how it was invested and invested in Jadrolinija when today after many years of tourism and ferry transport we are not able to optimally connect the islands to avoid such situations.On the other hand, if Jadrolinija does not want, does not know, cannot… then a concession should be announced for another carrier. This is a banal problem, and the solution is the introduction of new lines, which are, among other things, cost-effective. Put this problem on the table of any private entrepreneur and he will immediately find a solution, but obviously not the Jadrolinija Management.Again, we fall on the first and basic step, how can we develop tourism or extend the tourist season, if we can not ensure the basic – traffic accessibility. We can’t move forward like this, especially if we don’t communicate, especially Jadrolinija, which is owned by the state and so important for connecting the islands. Crazy, funny, tragic….This has nothing or at least should not have to do with politics, but exclusively with market and market development. We have to provide transportation from the island to the mainland if we want to engage in tourism. Without strategic and sustainable development there is no success.Read the full press release here: The problem of traffic jams at the entrance to the port of Supetarlast_img read more

Cairns apartment buyers need to consider strata dynamics

September 28, 2020 0 Comments

first_imgAPARTMENTS are a key part of the Cairns property scene, either for holiday investors or residents keen for a no-frills home close to the city’s amenities.But Archers the Strata Professionals, which has a presence in Cairns, has urged new buyers to do plenty of research on the strata or body corporate scheme and its management when buying an apartment.Partner Grant Mifsud said it was not just the property being purchased but also common areas and relationships with other owners.Mr Mifsud said while most strata schemes were well-managed and maintained communities, there could also be financial, legal, administrative and emotional challenges for buyers whether they be owner-occupiers or investors.Buyers should check out records to determine whether they are financially and emotionally stable and well managed.There are also professional body corporate record search agents trained to spot potential problems.Mr Mifsud said the five key areas where bodies corporate experience problems include their finances, common property defects, legislative compliance, body corporate management and disputes.“A solid program of maintenance, good recordkeeping, reporting and a healthy sinking fund are all important tools for maintaining common property,” he said.“A body corporate also needs good leadership to avoid stagnation and disputes. It is possible for a building to become derelict or invaded by toxic personalities and shockingly quickly. Since apathy usually goes hand-in-hand with stagnation of action, the longer it continues the larger the cost both financially and emotionally to eventually get the building back on track.”More from newsCairns home ticks popular internet search terms3 days agoTen auction results from ‘active’ weekend in Cairns3 days agoMr Mifsud said “dealing with difficult people” was the most daunting aspect of the job for all strata managers.He advised members to keep to the following:• Stay impartial and calm. The complainant is usually frustrated with the situation.• Listen and take notes. This is a necessary step not only to demonstrate your concern but to keep a record in case of formal dispute.• Empathise. If the complainant sees you are paying attention and empathising with them, their emotion will tend to diffuse.• Set boundaries. Let them know what your role is in the situation and the limit of your assistance.• Solve the problem. Educate the complainant of a step forward in the dispute resolution process.last_img read more
