2.1 Improvement and development of transport services and infrastructure
Przemyski Poviat (Podkarpackie Voivodeship, Poland)
Nyzhankovychi Village Council Lviv Region (Lviv Oblast, Ukraine)
Association of local government “Euroregion of the Carpathians – Ukraine” (Lviv Oblast, Ukraine)
One of the common challenges of the Przemyski Poviat and Staryi Sambir Raion is how to shorten the distance between the two areas without the necessity to use border crossings in Medyka–Shehyni or Krościenko–Smilnytsia. Current situation limits the connections between towns, villages and nearest larger municipal centers located on both sides of the border. This “border bridge” has a great value for local communities, as they have joint roots and cultural heritage objects, like Kalwaria Pacławska (called Jerusalem of the East) in Poland or the St. Onuphrius Monastery from XII c. in Lavriv in Ukraine.
The PaNTHer project is going to improve communication access to these peripheral border areas. In the context of building a new Polish-Ukrainian border crossing Malhowice–Nyzhankovychi, the redevelopment of 12.5 km roads is planned. The renovation will include poviat routes: Hurko–Jaksmanice, Krówniki–Jaksmanice and Przemyśl–Łuczyce-Rożubowice in Przemyski Poviat and the local road, Gagarin Street and Lesya Ukrainka Street with adjacent streets in the Nyzhankovychi village. Within provided works, there will be a development of road topping and profiles, a new drainage system, fresh pavements and bus bays, together with the organization of pedestrian traffic. The partners are going to apply modern technological solutions, like effective architectural design, energy and resource-saving technologies. The investment will be summed up by joint promotion of project achievements (e.g. publication of a brochure, memory boards, articles in the local press, radio and local TV).
Improving safety and comfort of travelling will strengthen mutual contacts and cooperation among residents and organizations of both involved districts. They will also benefit from easier access to natural sites, historic and religious heritage and joint cultural achievements and shorter travel time. In a longer perspective, the PaNTHer project will also bring new conditions for economic collaboration, investments and tourism in the Polish-Ukrainian borderland.
