Transport and accessibility

Effective transport infrastructure is a key factor for a strong and competitive Baltic Sea Region. BSSSC has focused on transport and infrastructure to identify common interests as well as possible conflicts, gaps and missing links in transport system in the BSR. Sub-regions can play an important role in the planning and development of infrastructure crossing national boarders.

 

BSSSC will:

  • Cooperate with the Transport WG of the CPMR Baltic Sea Commission to join forces on issues of common interests (e.g. TEN-T revision, new CEF programme from 2021)

  • Capitalise on the results of the Interreg BSR transport corridor projects Scandria2Act, TENTacle and NSB CoRe.

  • Follow the work of the transport platform BSR Access as an associated partner

  • Link up with EUSBSR Policy Area Transport and the Northern Dimension Partnership in Transport and Logistics.

  • Follow the work in the relevant TEN-T (Trans European Network - Transport) core corridors and take actions when relevant (policy paper and lobby work). Keep the regions updated.

  • Support the project Interreg BSR project MAMBA (“MAximised MoBility and Accessibility of Services in Regions Affected by Demographic Change”) as an associated partner

  • Work to have Policy Objective no.3 – A more connected Europe – included as a priority in the Interreg programme for the BSR 2021 – 2027
