The main project objective: to create a sustainable platform for effective cross-border mobility of people and goods by improving transport and border infrastructure and public lines connection, strengthening cooperation between self-governments and professional organizations aimed at transport and border infrastructure development. The main challenge: due to the associated EU membership of Ukraine and non-visa regime provided for Ukraine, the level of mobility of people and goods has increased and border infrastructure and connection between EU target regions and Ukraine need to be improved. There are great needs to develop the effective Mobility Strategy based on sustainable development and planning, synchronization of activities on the different sides of the border, because of the weak connection and infrastructure inequalities, low infrastructure network quality, poorly developed public transport services and lack of public lines connections in border regions.
The expected achievements: within the project the strategic approach to the sustainable and effective development of transport and border infrastructure are planned to be provided by developing the feasibility studies and pilot infrastructure project implementation in Ukraine, namely: 4,350 km of the bicycles roads. As a result of the project, the mobility of goods will be increased, the business will become more mobile and due to economic development and improved infrastructure, increase of the number of tourists and visitors in border regions is expected.
Expected results: increased number of vehicles using the built modernized transport and border management infrastructure (number of vehicles per day); 4,350 km of the bicycle roads will be reconstructed.
Created innovative approach of the project related to providing the connection of 8 target regions the population of which will benefit using the improved services.
