TRANS TRITIA - Improving coordination and planning of freight transport on TRANS TRITIA Project territory

Programme priority:   4. Cooperating on transport to better connect CENTRAL EUROPE

Programme priority specific objective:   4.2 To improve coordination among freight transport stakeholders for increasing mulitmodal environmentally-friendly freight solutions

Project acronym:   TRANS TRITIA

Project title:   Improving coordination and planning of freight transport on TRANS TRITIA Project territory

Project index number: CE960

TRITIA is a ‘European Grouping of Territorial Cooperation’ in which three regions of Poland, Slovakia and Czech Republic cooperate. Important roads and corridors cross its territory and with the TRANS TRITIA project the EGTC and other partners want to make transport networks, multi-modal logistic centres, and environmentally-friendly freight transport in their border territory more effective. To this end, the project will improve information, planning and coordination among regional authorities, administrators and freight transport stakeholders. Multi-aspect screening analyses and forecast analyses of multimodal transport systems and logistic centres in area will be carried out. In addition, forecasts and recommendations will be drafted. Specific focus will be on the analysis and forecast of the intermodal water corridor ODRA as an important transport way that connects the TRITIA area to the TEN-T network. A new method for setting up economic and environmentally- friendly freight transport in the TRITIA border areas will be developed. This digital interactive platform will provide various scenarios for freight transport in the area with forecast to up to year 2030.

Officially, the project started

2018-01-26, Prerov
Last week we had the opportunity to present the assumptions and approach of Trans Tritia project to a group of stakeholders involved in works on connecting Danube Odra and Laba rivers in Poland, Czech Republic and Slovakia. We emphasized that inclusion of inland water freight transport is a great opportunity for the whole region, however - besides money - it requires commitment on all levels: local, regional and central - in all countries. The participants of the meeting will follow the progress of our Project and consult its deliverables and outputs.
The Project was represented by the Lead Partner - GAPR and Project Parnter - MSUnion.
