The overall project objective is to provide regional level incentives for integration of transport patterns and networks in the BSR, as stipulated by the EU Strategy for the Baltic Sea region, by means of joint transport development measures and jointly implemented business concepts.

TransBaltic is based on outcomes of completed transnational transport projects in the BSR + several pan-Baltic initiatives, but will structure them into one framework and upgrade by selected pilot business actions.

The project will among all:

  • develop a decision support basis for regional and national investments in transport corridors across the BSR by means of corridor-scaled pan-Baltic traffic forecasts and scenarios;
  • prepare a regional action plan with measures needed to enhance the transport gateway function of the BSR from the sustainable regional development perspective;
  • implement business concepts in the transport field and generalise the findings at the BSR level in form of the BSR transport blueprints.
    provide an umbrella framework and create synergies between individual transnational transport projects and pan-Baltic transport development concepts by arranging debates and agreeing on necessary horizontal measures in shaping an integrated transport system in the BSR.
