The beauty of local towns, common folk culture and historical values stand for enormous tourism potential of the Polish- Belarusian borderland. Unfortunately poor condition of the road network limits the attractiveness of the area. Nowy Dwór Commune and Hrodna Oblast are examples of regions using their natural opportunities on not enough level.
The NODGRO project is going to improve the accessibility of the Poland and Belarus border regions through the roads' renovation. Three routes in Nowy Dwór Commune, on section Nowy Dwór–Chworościany (ca. 6 km) will be reconstructed and extended (road No.103584B and two sections of internal municipal roads). Within planned works a roadway will be constructed with the new asphalt foundation, road intersections, exits and ditches, culverts and dehydration system. Moreover, new equipment for future road maintenance will be purchased. The Belarusian partner is going to repair the 5.5 km long section of road No.H-6044 (Sviack–Vasilievičy–Astaša–Kadyš). The route width will be expanded to 7 m, new asphalt pavement will be laid, intersections with other roads and drainage system will be constructed. Furthermore, a bicycle path will be built (ca. 5 km). To improve the quality of their service the partners will also exchange experiences and knowledge on low-emission transport based on environmentally-friendly solutions during work meetings and conferences.
The NODGRO investments will result in shorter travel time on local and regional roads, what shall lead to the better accessibility of the border area for visitors. New transport routes will create better conditions for tourism growth, boost local entrepreneurship and ultimately improve the living standards of residents of the Polish-Belarusian borderland.
