InterAlpes: Measure 3.2 - Transport

The main objective of the project - to improve populations’ quality of life and encourage sustainable development of trans-border economic and territorial systems through cooperation in social, economic, environmental and cultural domains - is materialized by various lines of action and measures.

The InterAlpes project incorporates provision 2 – Transport in corridor 3: Encouraging the attractiveness of the zone by improving services and reinforcing the identity of cross-border communities.

The intensification of passenger and goods traffic on the main communication corridors in the cross-border area and the poor accessibility of the most peripheral zones are two aspects that are characteristic of the region. Therefore, it appears essential to harmonize links in the cross-border zone and improve sustainable development in terms of transport.

The main objective of this measure is to deal with problems of mobility and transport links on a large scale by concentrating on programming and logistics together with any social, economic, tourist and environmental consequences.


More specifically, the objectives of the Corridor 3 Transport measure are:  

  •      To improve cross-border mobility for persons and goods,
  •      To promote durable cross-border transport,
  •      To improve the accessibility of peripheral zones.


Different types of action have resulted from this measure:

1. Studies and experiments on combined solutions for improving travel facilities in the cross-border zone (harmonizing construction standards, integrating and harmonizing public transport time-tables),

2. Providing info-mobility services (bilingual signing, cross-border information services on utilities, weather, etc.

3. Joint actions for developing intermodality and interoperability,

4. Joint actions for improving cross-border seaport and airport links for tourist and commercial use,

5. Common actions for disseminating a durable mobility culture and sustainable development of transport and for enhancing the value of rail-transport,

6. Studying, developing and setting up links between main and secondary axes, notably by means of collective transport services (collective taxis, busses on request, car-pooling, etc.),

7. Concrete physical investments (limited to investments of local interest) and investments in know-how whose purpose is to improve and secure local connection services and structures of trans-border interest.
