The wide range of possibilities of good business relations or spending holidays abroad became easily available nowadays for the citizens of Polish-Belarusian-Ukrainian border area. People and borders are more “open” for travellers gaining knowledge and visiting unknown corners of the borderland. Besides, common history and heritage objects, the countries share the same challenges on communication and tourism development. Poor quality of roads seems to be one of the most important.
A partnership of institutions from Poland, Belarus and Ukraine was established to address this challenge. The ImTraPBU project aims at modernization of road sections in Poland located in the communes of Jabłoń, Milanów, Rossosz, Sosnówka, Wisznice and Parczewski Poviat, Belarus (Znamienka) and Ukraine (Zabrody). Within the project almost 8 km of new roads will be built and about 12 km of road sections will be reconstructed or upgraded. Additionally, the new pavements, traffic signs and road marking are also planned. Joint partner meetings on the investment will be an excellent opportunity to transfer the best practices, exchange experiences, manage risks or solve possible problems. The common strategy of the transport network developed there will be the basis for further joint ventures on that matter. Promotional activities carried out in all three countries will include publications of articles in the local press and regional media, posts on the websites spreading the project effects to the public.
Overall, a better quality of transport infrastructure will have a positive impact on communication in the border area, travel time on the road sections will be reduced even by 30%. In long term, the residents, tourists, economic operators and enterprises will benefit from improved living and business conditions. Common borderland of three countries will increase its accessibility for investors and visitors, contributing to economic growth and increasing socio-economic cohesion.
