2.1 Improvement and development of transport services and infrastructure
Zamość District (Lubelskie Voivodeship, Poland)
Sokal District (Lviv Oblast, Ukraine)
Two neighbouring districts – Zamojski Poviat in Poland and Sokal Raion in Ukraine – have unspoiled nature sights (including “NATURA 2000” area near Zamość), as well as many objects of cultural heritage, such as 16th century Bernardin Monastery in Sokal, an Orthodox church in Zabuzhzhya, in Ukraine or 18th-century wooden church and cemetery in Dub in Poland. Unfortunately, insufficient road network limits accessibility and attractiveness of the region.
The ECORoads project supports transport in the Poland-Ukraine border area. In Zamojksi Poviat reconstruction of two roads is planned: Kotlice–Zubowice and Horyszów–Kotlice (11.4 km). The works will include road hardening, new asphalt surface, width enlargement (to 5.5 m) and construction of exit junctions. New pavements, bus platforms and bus bay will be also built-in Kotlice, Dub, Tuczapy, Swaryczów and Zubowice. Additionally, energy-saving barriers, photovoltaic lighting and road markings will be provided. Symmetric works are planned in Sokal Raion, where the 2.6 km roads in Zhvyrka, Zabuzhzhya and Huta will be modernized with a new bituminous surface and pavements. All works will be based on environment-friendly solutions. The partners will also organize a cycle of lessons in schools in the project area on road safety and ecology.
The good quality of the roads has strategic significance as they are connected to the Lviv–Kovel carriageway, leading to the Zosin–Ustyluh and Hrebenne–Rava-Ruska border crossings. The residents, tourists and enterprises of the Polish-Ukrainian borderland will enjoy better mobility and reduced travel time. The region will benefit from increased cultural links and tourism traffic between both countries.
