The project proposes to contribute to the improvement of the transport chain and to the enhancement of integration of multimodal transport in Sicily and Malta, in support of the TEN-T corridor 5.

STREETS will provide in a concrete manner to the improvement of the knowledge of the transport system between and within the two islands through a joint mapping of the transport network, an integrated offer/demand inquiry and an appropriate strategy for the promotion of an integrated and sustainable transportation solutions.

The entire project is supported by the development of a web-GIS platform essential for the political administrative harmonization within an integrated transport system between the two islands. The web-gis platform will collect geo-referenced data about the transport system by promoting the simplification of the dialogue between the Public Administration of the involved territories, facilitating the planning, design, implementation and/ or joint monitoring, increase in quality and safety standards and, finally, the dialogue with citizens and stakeholder.

Il progetto si propone di contribuire al miglioramento della catena del trasporto e al rafforzamento dell’integrazione dei trasporti multimodali in Sicilia e a Malta, a supporto del corridoio 5 del TEN-T.

STREETS fornirà un apporto concreto al miglioramento della conoscenza del sistema dei trasporti fra le due isole e all'interno di esse attraverso una mappatura della rete trasportistica, un’indagine integrata dell'offerta/domanda ed un’apposita strategia per la promozione di un trasporto integrato e sostenibile.

L’intero progetto è sostenuto dallo sviluppo di una piattaforma web-GIS in vista di un’armonizzazione politico-amministrativa nell’ambito del sistema di trasporti integrati fra le due isole. La piattaforma raccoglierà dati geo-referenziali circa il sistema di trasporti favorendo la semplificazione del dialogo fra le Pubbliche Amministrazioni dei due paesi, facilitando le attività di pianificazione, progettazione, implementazione e/o monitoraggio congiunto, incremento degli standard di sicurezza e qualità nonché il dialogo con i cittadini e gli stakeholder

The STREETS has contributed to improving an understanding of the multimodal transport system between Malta and Sicily by defining the framework of an integrated and sustainable transportation strategy within and between the two islands. This cross-border area – largely rural with the widespread presence of medium to small urban settlements– suffers, in fact, from a state of physical marginalization due to its insular nature and position on the edge of the European Union. Furthermore, limited connections in transport systems shape social –economic development due to the difficulty of integrating the area’s economy with relative international markets. STREETS has created a transport network map, an integrated survey of supply and demand, and a special strategy to promote integrated and sustainable transportation so as to contribute to improvements in the transport chain and to strengthen multimodal transport integration in Sicily and Malta in support of the TEN-T Corridor 5 (see box). The capacity building aspect has also been of major importance, allowing 15 representatives from each member country both from the public administration and from the private sector to conform their respective functions/services in the joint management of the Italian/Maltese permanent coordination centre for transport policy.
