2.1 Improvement and development of transport services and infrastructure
Bielany Commune (Mazowieckie Voivodeship, Poland)
Manevychi District Administration (Volyn Oblast, Ukraine)
Common history is a hallmark of the Polish-Ukrainian borderland. Existing objects of cultural, historical and natural heritage are popular tourist destinations for inhabitants and visitors of the region. One of them is Kostyukhnivka village in Manevychi District (Ukraine), where the battle of the Polish Legions under the command of J. Piłsudski had place in 1916. Unfortunately, the goods and people traffic in this area is limited by the low standard of local roads. Routes in the Municipalities of Bielany and Manevychi are examples of insufficient technical conditions and both need improvement.
The FasterSafer project is going to face the challenge of developing transport accessibility of these areas addressed through the modernization of local roads. In the scope of the project, seven road sections of 23.6 km total length will be modernized – five sections of 7.6 km in Poland (Kowiesy–Ruciany, Ruciany–Bielany-Jarosławy, Wojewódki Dolne–Wojewódki Górne) and two sections of 16.0 km in Ukraine (Sobishchytsi–Kolodii–Vovchytsk–Komarove–Roznychi, from Kostiukhnivka village to the M-07 road). Complete reconstruction of the damaged roads will include making foundation and asphalt layers, drainage system, road vertical marking, construction of pavements, energy-saving LED street lighting.
Better quality of road infrastructure will have a positive impact on the living standard of residents and the accessibility of the area for visitors and entrepreneurs from both sides of the border. They all will benefit from the increased travel safety of car and pedestrian traffic as well as reduced travel time and fuel emissions to the environment. Moreover, an ongoing partnership via the exchange of experiences between the partners will bring together entities with similar location, history and challenges. Joint promotion of the economic potential and touristic attractiveness of Polish-Ukrainian cross-border area will allow closer cooperation between both regions and countries.
