The aim of the research is to develop:
- A mapping of existing and planned transport infrastructure (hereinafter - mapping);
- A unified transport investment assessment methodology (hereinafter - methodology) for transport policy planning in order to ensure the investment precondition "Comprehensive transport planning at the appropriate level", which is stated in the 3rd policy objective “Closer Europe” in the common provisions on the EU funds regulation of the 2021-2027 planning period.
Mapping includes digital information which:
- Corresponds to the national energy and climate plans;
- Comprises investments in the TEN-T core network corridors in accordance with the TEN-T network corridor plans;
- Takes into account that investments should ensure sufficient connectivity of regional and local communities;
- Identifies the needs of multimodal or transhipment cargo and passenger terminals, which facilitate multimodal transportation;
- Takes into account evaluation of road traffic risks, according to the current national road traffic safety strategies and mapping of risky road sections and prioritising related investments;
- Takes into account information on financial resources, which correspond to the planned investments and which are necessary to cover current and planned exploitation expenditures.
The methodology is a complementary support tool for the transport policy and investment strategy planning, it will allow to evaluate and plan the impact of investments on transport flows, connected mobility solutions, climate plans and road safety nationwide.
