Sustainable modes of transport in the Baltic Sea region
The Kvarken Council is one of the partners in the BSR Access project, which aims at fostering access to clean, efficient, and multimodal transport corridors in the Baltic Sea region. It also strives to contribute to the region’s sustainable growth. The project fosters the active transnational planning of the TEN-T core network corridor, with clean fuel solutions and connections to the transport network.
The Helsinki-Uusimaa Regional Council functions as the project’s lead part, joined by six other organizations in the Baltic Sea region. They share with each other e.g. the knowledge and experiences acquired through various projects (these projects in parentheses): The Helsinki-Uusimaa Regional Council (lead part in BSR Access, NSB CoRe), Region Blekinge in Sweden (TENTacle), the Kvarken Council (E12 Atlantica Transport, Midway Alignment of the Bothnian Corridor and MABA II), Port of Hamburg Marketing (EMMA), Joint Spatial Planning Department Berlin-Brandenburg (Scandria2Act), and the Capital Region of Denmark (STRING Network).
The project is financed by the EU programme Interreg Baltic Sea Region, with a total budget of EUR 1 million. The three-year project is carried out during 2018–2021.
Optimization of cross-border cooperation
The Kvarken Council answers for the activity that focuses on various cross-border cooperation forms regarding transport corridors. A webinar and a preliminary survey and mapping will be compiled into a statement, which will present functional and recommended cooperation models with a focus on cross-border collaboration between the countries.
