LLI-280 Improvement of cross border road infrastructure for well connected regional centers and facilitated labor mobility in the border areas (EASYCROSSING)

The overall objective of the project “Improvement of cross border road infrastructure for well connected regional centers and facilitated labor mobility in the border areas” (EASYCROSSING) is to facilitate geographical mobility and territorial integrity of the LV – LT border regions providing an appropriate transport infrastructure for mobility of work force, services and goods in order to reduce territorial challenges like high unemployment rate, emigration, low quality of road infrastructure etc. – impediment for sustainable regional development.

To achieve specific objective there are planned:

  • events promoting mobility opportunities,
  • reconstruction of 6 road sections in total length of 45.93 km.

To ensure qualitative outcomes, partners cooperated already in the project development stage and it will be continued implementing common promotion activities, data exchange on available work opportunities etc. EASYCROSSING will be a kind of challenge for partners, focusing attention on the opportunities given by the qualitative road infrastructure more than on the fact that infrastructure is improved.

Reconstruction of following road sections planned:

  • P106 Ezere–Embūte–Grobiņa, 0,07-13.95 km and 163 Mažeikiai – LV border, 0.0-9.209 km;
  • V1028 Bauska–Bērzi–LT border, 7,44-14,62 km and 2912 Žeimelis – Vileišiai – LV border, 0.0- 5.1 km;
  • P75 Jēkabpils–LT border, 56,08-60,50 km and V961 Nereta–Sleķi, 0,10-1,15 km and 3647 Pandėlys – Suvainiškis – LV border, 13.3 – 18.3 km,
  • e-based information exchange points with information about job opportunities and how to find it.
