Project description

Common history of borderland is what Poland and Ukraine share. 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 (Volyn Oblast, Ukraine), where the battle of the Polish Legions under the command of J. Piłsudski had place in 1916. Unfortunately the goods and people traffic on this area is limited by the low standard of local roads. Routes in the Municipalities of Bielany (Poland) and Manevychi (Ukraine) are the examples of insufficient technical condition and both need improvement.

The FasterSafer project is going to face the challenge developing transport accessibility of these addressed areas through the modernisation of local roads.
In the scope of the project, seven road sections of 23.6 km total length will be modernised – 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–Kolodiyi–Vovchytsk–Komarove–Roznychi,
from Kostyukhnivka 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 a pavements, energy-saving LED street lighting as well as needed elimination of trees and shrubs.

Better quality of road infrastructure will have positive influence on 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 increased travel safety of vehicular and pedestrian traffic as well as reduced travel time and fuel emissions to the environment. Moreover an ongoing partnership via exchange of experiences between the partners will bring together entities with similar location, history and challenges. Joint promotion the economic potential and touristic attractiveness of Polish-Ukrainian cross-border area allowing closer cooperation between both regions and countries.
