The border regions of Ukraine and Poland – Lviv Oblast and Podkarpackie Voivodeship – are most peripheral in the scope of their countries. Nevertheless, the traffic is very intensive there through crossing points located in this area (Medyka–Shehyni, Korczowa– Krakovets, Budomierz–Hrushiv and Hrebenne–Rava-Ruska). Unfortunately, the road infrastructure is not adjusted to high demands of locomotion due to its poor technical condition hindering cross-border contacts and reducing the attractiveness of the area for investors and tourists.
Alternative ways leading to the border could be the solution to this task. The TransBorder project will reconstruct 19.1 km of the road Mostyska–Krakovets (road No.О141003) and 0.7 km of provincial road Sieniawa–Hrebenne (road No.867, Wyszyński Str. in Lubaczów) increasing safety and transport accessibility. On the Ukrainian side, works will include road coverage repair together with the drainage system as well as the modernization of cross-roads. On the Polish side the road hardening, surface covering with new asphalt concrete and reflective marking is foreseen. Additionally, the project will establish the concept of environment-friendly solutions in the road infrastructure in Ukraine and Poland and publish it on partners’ webpages. The activities will be complemented with two workshops on that matter, where the exchange of know-how, expertise and best practices will be possible. A publication of articles in the regional press will spread the project achievements to a wider public.
The unified road network of the Polish-Ukrainian border area will facilitate cross-border traffic and international contacts. In a longer perspective, it will lead to the creation of new investment areas in the vicinity of the expanded roads. Common cross-border initiatives play a major role in good relationships between the inhabitants and provide new possibilities of regional potential usage for both countries.
