WP5.5. Railway solutions for the North-South and East-West flows Project Part-financed by the European Union Leszek Andrzejewski ILIM contribution WP5.5. kick-off meeting - Oslo, 02.12.2009
Scope of ILIM works Inventory of the INTEREG,FRAMEWORK and national research projects aiming at connections linking Poland with Scandinavia. Deeper analysis of the bottlenecks and barriers in the projects focused on train connections of the West part of Poland with Scandinavia via port of Szczecin / Świnoujście. The findings will be confronted with container train connections recently established: „Ferry Train” ex Poznań via Świnoujście to Malmö „Baltic Train” ex Wrocław via Świnoujście to Malmö WP5.5. kick-off meeting - Oslo, 02.12.2009
Transport corridor : West Poland -The Nordic Triangle Existing connections Wrocław (PL) - Malmö (SE) Poznań (PL) - Malmö (SE) Extensions under analysis Malmö - Stockholm (SE) Malmö - Oslo (NO) Milestone 1 – Selection of transport corridors Modal shift: Rail / Ferry / Rail vs. Truck / Ferry / Truck WP5.5. kick-off meeting - Oslo, 02.12.2009
Identified Research Projects SEBTrans - South East Baltic Transport Link Baltic Gateway Baltic Gateway Plus Adriatic –Baltic Landbridge Logchain Polcorridor WP5.5. kick-off meeting - Oslo, 02.12.2009
SEBTrans - South East Baltic Transport Link Webside: www.sebtrans.comwww.sebtrans.com Starting & ending date: 1999 & Summer 2001 Main objectives: The main objective of the SEBTrans project is to promote the use of transport corridors, modes and technologies, which support a sustainable regional, as well as an economic and social development of the regions involved in the project. WP5.5. kick-off meeting - Oslo, 02.12.2009
Baltic Gateway Webside: www.balticgateway.sewww.balticgateway.se Starting & ending date: March 2003 & completed in June 2006 Main objectives: BALTIC GATEWAY was a transnational Interreg IIIB-project which involved 38 partners from 7 countries. The project promoted a comprehensive system of high quality transport and transport related services in the South Baltic Sea area, aiming at regional development and sustainable growth. The project was structured in four work packages. WP5.5. kick-off meeting - Oslo, 02.12.2009
Baltic Gateway Work package 1 dealt with the South Baltic Sea area in a European and global perspective, as a sustainable region relying on maritime transport. The work included the following tasks. Work package 2 worked with improved cohesion in the area through improved accessibility. Selected corridors and bottlenecks were investigated and concrete investments prepared. The work included: a) Analysis of the corridor Copenhagen- Blekinge-Klaipeda-Minsk, b) Analysis of the corridor Copenhagen-Gedser-Rostock-Berlin-Prague, c) Analysis of the corridor Copenhagen-Malmö-Ystad-Szczecin-Wroclaw, d) Planning a new rail link Lund-Kristianstad.
Baltic Gateway Plus Webside: www.balticgateway.sewww.balticgateway.se Starting & ending date: January 2006 & completed in December 2007 Main objectives: Baltic Gateway PLUS is a follow-up project to the Baltic Gateway project. The project has the following aims: - Develop an implementation Plan for priority investments in intermodal transport infrastructure and services in the South Baltic Sea area (SBSa) as identified in the Baltic Gateway project, - Provide a base for capacity building among the actors involved in intermodal transport and sustainable spatial development in SBSa, - Contribute to the development of implementation measures for trans-national projects, - Strengthen the political transport co-operation in the South Baltic Sea area, - Facilitate implementation of selected transport infrastructure investements and intermodal transport services.
A-B LANDBRIDGE ADRIATIC-BALTIC LANDBRIDGE Webside: www.ablandbridge.eu Starting & ending date: 06/2006 - 04/2008 Main objectives: Besides east/west connections and transport corridors, the enlarged EU also needs an improvement in the transport routes connecting the Mediterranean and Baltic countries. The Adriatic-Baltic land bridge project will conduct a pre-feasibility analysis and develop a deployment roadmap for north/south intermodal transport connections which link Europe and the Mediterranean countries with global markets.
Logchain POLCORRIDOR Webside: Starting & ending date: 2002 - 2005 Main objectives: Study to develop, commercially validate an intermodal system for trans – European freight transfer between nordic region and South East Europe whose central building block will be „ Blue Shuttle Train” connecting two intermodal centres of Szczecin/Świnoujście and Gdynia/ Gdańsk with Vienna.

Scope of ILIM works Establishment of the transnational working group Rail transport operators Ferry operators Sea ports operators Shippers WP5.5. kick-off meeting - Oslo, 02.12.2009
Working group focus The working group will study the case study of established train connections taking into consideration the following aspects: Identification of good practices (the bottlenecks and obstacles surmounted during implementation of the above container train connections) Identification of still existing bottlenecks and barriers requiring improvements Drawing up the action plan of short-term and low-budget issues Identification of investments required as recommendations to the regional transport strategic plan Analysis of competitiveness of the container train connection with road alternatives Analysis of possibility to enlarge connection from Malmö to Stockholm and Oslo basing on potential volumes and alternative freight calculation.

Scope of co-operation with the WP5.5. partners analysis of containerised cargo flows between Scandinavia and Poland specification of container trains connections between Malmoe and Stockholm / Oslo time tables freight / handling rates WP5.5. kick-off meeting - Oslo, 02.12.2009
