The second generation of the work plans of the 11 European Coordinators as approved December 2016 are now available. They establish the basis for action until 2030. The Second Baltic Adriatic Work Plan is the fruit of intensive work undertaken by the European Coordinator, prof. Kurt Bodewig. Together with the Member States concerned, Poland, Czech Republic, Slovakia, Austria, Italy and Slovenia, and in consultation with the Corridor Forum.
As highlighted in the report, the Baltic-Adriatic corridor links major nodes (urban nodes, ports, airports and other transport terminals) through key rail, road, maritime and air transport connections from North to South, i.e. from Poland through the Czech Republic, Slovakia, Austria to Italy and Slovenia. Such a reinforced network in Central Europe significantly strengthens the infrastructural basis for efficient, safe and high-quality multimodal transport chains for freight and passengers. By implementing the Baltic-Adriatic axis, new traffic flows between the Baltic and Adriatic ports and their hinterland are being developed and the ports as entry and exit doors of the corridor being boosted.
This very interesting reading shows the main features and progress along the corridor in the last years. More specifically, general objectives and KPIs for the development of the Baltic-Adriatic Corridor are shown.
The above mentioned KPIs have been defined for the nine core network corridors as part of the activities undertaken in the scope of the 2015-2017 core network corridor studies, in order to measure the status and set the targets for the development of the corridors.
The supply side KPIs value for the Baltic-Adriatic Corridor are presented in the Table below for all transport modes, which include the baseline year at 2013, the updated indicator at 2015 and the target for 2030.
Furthermore, the study deals with the compliance with the technical infrastructure parameters of the TEN-T guidelines, the transport flows on the corridor, the prognosis of the transport market evolution until 2030 and goes into detail on projects for the development of the Baltic-Adriatic Corridor as well as critical issues on the Corridor itself.
