BASIC PROJECT DATA
Project ID: PA1A142
NEED AND ADDED VALUE FOR THE DANUBE REGION STRATEGY
The port of Komárom, located at river km 1,767 of the Danube, in the proximity of both Bratislava and Budapest, is a crossroad for flows and transhipment of freight between inland waterway, rail and road transport. Its development, in line with the project related to the construction of the bridge linking the Hungarian port of Komárom and the Slovak port of Komárno, will contribute to enhance the connections between different modes of transport allowing an increase of freight handled along the Slovak–Hungarian sections of the Danube and the overall Rhine-Danube core network corridor.
OBJECTIVE(S) OF THE PROJECT
The project aims to improve basic ports infrastructures, provide access to the inland ports and foster their connections with road and inland waterway networks. The outcome of the studies will lay the ground for future port development by setting strategic directions and development priorities after 2020.
The preparation of the Master Plan, Feasibility study and 20 case studies for the overall ports development along the Hungarian section of the Danube will be coordinated with the “Master Plan and feasibility study for the Komárno port” (PA1A141) elaborated by Public Ports jsc. of Slovakia.
Danube countries, increase in the inland water transport mode as one of the environmentally friendly transport modes. The modal shift can have positive impact on the overall transport relations.
