The border area of Poland and Belarus is characterized by insufficient communication networks, which hamper the traffic through the border. The key need of the Białostocki Poviat and the Hrodna Oblast is the creation of better access to the major Polish-Belarusian border crossings (Bobrowniki–Bierastavica, Kuźnica Białostocka–Bruzhi, Rudawka–Lesnaya), and common heritage sites like the Augustów Canal.
The TransGoverNet project is going to challenge this issue via the reconstruction of roads and new eco-friendly solutions on both sides of the border. In Poland, the 4.8 km part of road No.1282B (Krynki–Kruszyniany–Łużany–Bobrowniki) and road No.105067B in Bobrowniki (0.5 km) will be renovated. A new asphalt cover will be laid, also road widening, repair of culverts, surface drainage, bus terminus and sidewalk in Łużany will be provided. In Belarus, the modernization of the 6.5 km long section of road No.H-6044 (Sviack–Vasilievičy–Astaša–Kadyš) will include the new asphalt pavement, road-sides, bicycle path (3.6 km), the sidewalk in Sviack and Vasilievičy villages (2.4 km), culverts, outdoor lighting (0.9 km), four bus stops, parking space and road signs. Furthermore, transport expertise will be elaborated, creating a basis for the cross-border policy workshop on the sector, common priorities and future directions. Also, preparing the “Integrated Strategy for Cross-border Transport Governance” with feasibility studies of pilot solutions is foreseen. Thanks to the new interactive website partners network will share their ideas, knowledge and experience.
The investments carried out in separate locations will bring external effects in both Poland and Belarus. Through the eco-friendly solutions and long-term cooperation network, the project will result in more safe and convenient cross-border traffic. The pearl of the region – Augustów Canal – and other valuable sites of the borderland become more available for tourists and inhabitants enabling new development perspectives.
