CEF cofinanced Action nr 2015-EU-TM-0310-M, contributes to the development and the upgrading of the MoS corridors in the Eastern Mediterranean Area, specifically of the MoS link Trieste-Ancona-Igoumenitsa, by boosting the development of port infrastructures in the ports of Trieste, Ancona and Igoumenitsa and on the RRT of Fernetti and Igoumenitsa, as well as supporting facilities for their further integration, to fully integrate the MoS corridor in the freight supply chains, thus increasing European competitiveness and trade with South–East Mediterranean area, and contributing to the fulfillment of TEN-T priorities.
The Adriatic-Ionian intermodal corridor is amongst the most utilized ones within the wider area of the Eastern Mediterranean and is characterized by the extensive and long standing provision of Ro-Ro and Ro-Pax services. The improved port infrastructures will allow the concentration of the traffic flows, with a consequent increase in the throughput and its related market area, promoting modal shift and efficient connections among ports and hinterland nodes. Moreover, the Action supports the priority for reduction of emissions, by increasing the environmental sustainability of the Igoumenitsa-Ancona-Trieste maritime link through the modal shift from road to maritime and rail transport. The combination of these activities will enhance the cooperation among the ports, essential for the establishment of an efficient and sustainable MoS link, fully integrated in the EU supply logistic chain.
Activities 1 and 2 – Construction of Igoumenitsa Freight Village (IFV) and construction of road
link between IFV and Egnatia-Odos highway: Activities 1 and 2 focus on the implementation of the bipolar “Igoumenitsa Freight Village-IFV” in the regional unit of Thesprotia in NW Greece and the upgrading of the respective road connection.
Activities 3 and 4 – Studies for the upgrading of railway infrastructure, Technical design and environmental studies for the new RO/PAX terminal of the port of Ancona: the Activities includes the realization of intermediate and final design for the extension of the railway tracks inside the port area and a study for the optimization of railway flow management in the port area (Activity 3) and the implementation of the technical designs of the new Ro-Pax terminal and the related environmental studies for building the terminal (Activity 4).
Activity 5 – Functional and technical restructuring of Pier VI in the Port of Trieste: Activity 5 focuses
on the restructuring of the multipurpose and intermodal Pier VI in order to double the existing mooring and
operate safely the increased maritime traffic.
Activity 6 - Integration of the maritime link in the BAC and MED TEN-T Corridors in the dryport of Fernetti: Activity 6 regards the works required for the improvement of
the railways infrastructure of the Freight Village. More specifically, the activities consist of the electrification of the rail yard, the construction of a new building facility and the new e-gateway for port-rail-road traffic.
OBJECTIVES AND EXPECTED RESULTS
Increasing the passenger
and freight traffic flows
Improving the quality
of logistic services
Enhancing the provision of
new services in terms of
cargo storage and processing
Improving the ports
organisation and management
capacity by streamling the freight flows
Improving of the hinterland connections in the three ports, enhancing “networking” and intermodality
Connecting through intermodal solutions the Adriatic-Ionian corridor, removing the existing bottlenecks and facilitating the supply chain integration
Promoting the use of railway network through the improvement of the rail infrastructure and the logistics facilities to support ports’ intermodal traffic and the enhancement of the railways traffic management
Ensuring sustainable economic development opportunities for the entire area
Improving the connection and integration of four TEN-T core network corridors (BAC, SCAN-MED, MED and Orient-East MED)
Improving the environmental pollution conditions in in the Adriatic area through the reduction of road traffic congestion
Supporting sustainable intermodal transport and enhancing modal shift to maritime and rail transport modes
