Description: 24 months

The project aims at improving the cross border accessibility of the rail freight traffics. The reduction of the waiting time at the borders and the elimination in bureaucracy are of utmost importance within the project. The project will result in proposing a single policy for Southeast Europe, including West Balkans. The project’s main target is to develop synergies through development policies regarding the broader area of the Adriatic Sea, the Danube River and the Black Sea, thus forming a single transportation area. The project’s outputs will lead the investments in infrastructure and the interventions to be made in the Southeast Europe area which are necessary to increase the volume of the freight transported by train as the main transport mode, in combination with other means of transportation.
