  • Description:
    The project ADRIA A, funded in range of the Cross-border Cooperation Programme Italy-Slovenia 2007-2013, aims to reorganize the accessibility and the transport of the entire cross-border Italy and Slovenia area and establish an integrated metropolitan area.

    The common target is to reach a critical mass that is necessary for the competitiveness of the area and the implementation of an efficient, integrated and sustainable system. For this reason, the project plans to realise the missing railway links in Italy and Slovenia, that will make possible the establishment of transport services among the entire area. In addition, ADRIA A aims to create the first EGTC (European Grouping of Territorial Cooperation) between Italy and Slovenia, which will give an important legal basis for future cooperation in the field of planning and transport.

    The project aims to effectively integrate transport modes (railway, public transport, inter-modality rail-air and rail-sea) among the metropolitan area. ADRIA A will strengthen the links between the city, through the implementation of an integrated rail service. The project will carry out some preliminary studies of the missing links between the Slovenian and Italian infrastructure. In particular, the projects of the Gorizia-Nova Gorica-Vrtojba route, the electrification of the Nova Gorica-Sežana route and the railway link between Trieste and Koper-Capodistria, will be relised.

    The existing railway route will be deeply analyzed to find out the missing links and the bottlenecks and to propose solutions to optimize their use. The cross-border area will be integrated in a single subway system with the central part of the Veneto region, an area of great international importance both from the culture and tourism point of view and also from its production centres, town centres and transport resources.
