Project description

The Bialski Poviat in Poland and the Brest Raion in Belarus are struggling with the issues of marginalization and poor in- vestment attractiveness. A bad condition of road infrastructure and overused road network directly affects the quality of residents’ lives, which can be observed in the high number of road accidents, vehicles malfunctioning – built several decades ago, the roads are not adapted to sustain the current volume of traffic.

The Accessibility project is going to improve the transit in both regions through the modernization of road infrastructure leading to new Sławatycze–Damačava border crossing. On the Polish side of the border the reconstruction of the poviat road No.1051L will be provided on section Tuczna–Sławatycze (4.4 km). On Belarusian side the local road No.N-424 on section Malaryta–Miedna–Znamienka will be renovated as well (5.1 km). The works will include laying a new road surface and building a full-size bus bays marked with signs, repair of existing culverts, drainage system, strengthening of the roadsides and building sidewalks. Furthermore, to keep the reconstructed road in a good condition, both partners will also buy the equipment for winter and summer road maintenance. Common promotion in press and internet and mobile application for drivers, will present the inhabitants and visitors the new investment in the area.

Overall, the project will increase the safety and quality of travelling in Bialski Poviat and Brest Raion. Via constant exchange of experiences, good practices, knowledge and know-how also the competences of the road infrastructure managers will be strengthened. All the project activities should lead to better communication between Polish and Belarusian border areas.
