Demonstration of SUMP strategies to strengthen the core to growth pole accessibility for economic and social cohesion
Implementing sustainable mobility
The elaboration of Constanta Growth Pole Sustainable Urban Mobility Plan, agreed as a priority by the Romanian Government and the European Commission in the context of the new European Union budgetary period 2014 - 2020, is under development and was adopted by the ”Constanta Metropolitan Area” Intercommunity Development Association (ZMC) at the beginning of 2017.
In addition, the Port approved its own Master Plan in 2016 and established its main objectives as being the port's continuous development and efficient use of existing resources and infrastructure to meet the real needs of the market.
Starting from these two different strategic documents, this measure will focus on the identification of missing links and overlapping and/or contradictory measures. Once done, it will develop a proposal to mitigate these negative aspects and create a joint integrated development vision.
The second activity of this measure will be to conduct a thorough evaluation for three projects foreseen in the short term action plans of the SUMP and/or Master Plan. This evaluation will measure the social, economic, and environmental impacts of these projects on the public, the city, and the business sector, with a special focus to the city and port's relationship.
The last activity in this measure will be to update the transport model of Constanta’s SUMP.
