Project description

The project tackles issues that have been raised in previous co-operation projects:

  • a functional transport route
  • strategies for cross-border planning
  • future cooperation structures.

Good knowledge of the transport system, transport demand and future placement of facilities is a fundamental pillar in effective, cross-border transport planning. The project drafts central strategies and guidelines for cross-border transport planning and the routes sustainable development. The basic purpose is to compile together the infrastructural planning processes of the three countries participating in the project as well as to coordinate the planning, use and maintenance of the infrastructures. A cross-border arena where the public sector, economic life and scientific world can meet, exchange experiences and create the foundation for new forms of collaboration is needed for the channeling of the know-how and cooperation of the economic life, innovations and the transport system.
