Sustainable urban transport
A shorter time of travelling by public transport, smoother traffic in the city centre, integration of public transport and solutions for pedestrians, cyclists and car drivers. Better use of environment-friendly public transport, adaptation of the means of transport to the needs of people with disabilities and new connections in urban areas which so far have been unsupported. These are the effects of the projects for which support may be applied for by 5 voivodeship cities of Eastern Poland (Białystok, Kielce, Lublin, Olsztyn, Rzeszów) along with their functional areas or areas of implementing the Integrated Territorial Investment strategy. Investment projects aimed at developing or creating new, integrated and ecological urban transport networks will be co-financed under the activity „Sustainable urban transport”.
Through the implementation of the projects „Road infrastructure”, the capitals of the voivodeships in Eastern Poland and their functional areas as important labour markets will gain good connections with the network of national roads, including the Trans-European Transport Network TEN-T. Support may be applied for by the voivodeship cities: Białystok, Kielce, Lublin, Olsztyn, Rzeszów and self-governments of the following voivodeships: Podlaskie, Świętokrzyskie, Lubelskie, Warmińsko-Mazurskie and Podkarpackie. The co-financing may be obtained for investment projects involving the construction or reconstruction of national and voivodeship roads, providing the connection with the network of national roads, including TEN-T.
