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 main challenges of the Przemyski Poviat and Staryi Sambir District, the Polish-Ukrainian borderland, is a mutual access to these areas
and necessity of use distant border crossings in Medyka-Shegini or Krościenko–Smilnytsia. Such situation limits the connections between towns, villages and nearest larger municipal centres located on both sides of the border, what negatively influence their economic, cultural and social development. 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 (Ukraine).
The PaNTHer project is going to improve the 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 (Poland) and the local road, Gagarin Street and L. Ukrajinky Street with adjacent streets
in the Nyzhankovychi Village (Ukraine). Within provided works there will be a development of road topping and profiles, 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 (publication of a brochure, memory boards, articles in the local press, radio and local TV etc.).
In the consequence the residents and organisations of both involved districts will strengthen mutual contacts and cooperation improving the safety and comfort of travelling. They will also benefit from easier access to natural sites, historic and religious heritage as well as joint cultural achievements and shorter travel time. In a longer perspective the PaNTHer project will also bring new conditions for economic cooperation, investments and tourism of Polish-Ukrainian borderland.
