Opening ceremony of the first road section reconstructed within the EASYCROSSING

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

Date: 14. September 2018

Time: 12:00 am - 3:00 pm

Nereta, Latvia

In September 14, 2018, in Nereta (LV) the Opening Ceremony of the road section P75 Jēkabpils–LT border, 56,08-60,50 km and V961 Nereta–Sleķi, 0,10-1,15 km was organized. This road section was reconstructed within the project EASYCROSSING in order to facilitate labor mobility over the border and give new job opportunities for the local people of the border regions.

Usually, the density of the residents and traffic volumes in border regions are too low to make significant investments comparing with national level road infrastructure. However, availability of the qualitative road still is one of the most important criteria to decide to look for job in longer distances from the living place therefor support of the EU funds within the cross-border cooperation project is very important for the development of the border regions.

Information activities to inform residents about job opportunities over the border will the launched in the 2nd half of the 2019 after completion of the reconstruction works on road section 3647 Pandėlys – Suvainiškis – LV border, 13.3 – 18.3 km which are interrupted for a while due the archeological findings and following investigation.
