2.1 Improvement and development of transport services and infrastructure
The Road Maintenance Company in Brest (Brest Oblast, Belarus)
City of Biała Podlaska (Lubelskie Voivodeship, Poland)
The use of car transport is developing constantly, also in border areas, where the traffic of people and goods is more intensive. However, current roads capacities on both sides of the border are not adapted to this trend, what leads to a higher number of car accidents and environmental degradation. Brest and Biała Podlaska are facing similar problems for travellers going through Terespol–Brest or Kazlovičy–Kukuryki border crossing points.
The OurBetterStreet project is going to enhance transport infrastructure and accessibility in these cities via reconstruction of the 11.3 km road in Brest and 1.6 km in Biała Podlaska. In Brest City, seven crossroads on Warsaw–Moscow route will be rebuilt. Moreover, the Intelligent Transportation System (ITS) will be installed reducing travel time by fine-tuning the operation mode of traffic. Reconstruction will include the purchase of equipment, construction, installation and commissioning. Another two crossroads within motorway No.2 will be renovated in Biała Podlaska. Eight additional traffic lines and two roundabouts will be built, the road structure with drainage system will be refreshed, new pavements constructed, road lighting and signs installed. The partners plan also the public campaign raising the awareness on friendly transport, safe and responsible road behaviour providing master classes of “First aid” and “Safety and Cycling”. Joint publications of the articles, brochures and website news will present the benefits of the project to the residents and visitors on both sides of the border.
The OurBetterStreet project shall lead to the reduction of the accidents rate and travel time on routes in Brest and Biała Podlaska. Increased capacity of the road network will improve transit and become more gentle to the environment. Finally, the roads reconstruction in a longer perspective will boost the investment potential of both addressed locations.
