EU co-financing to help Belarus, Poland and Ukraine to plan restoration of the E40 waterway on the Dnieper-Vistula section

The project, which aims to develop and approve an optimal scenario for the restoration of an important international arterial waterway E40 on the section Dnieper-Vistula-Oder, is funded by the European Union within the Poland-Belarus-Ukraine cross-border cooperation programme for 2007-2013. The project is being implemented by the Republican unitary maintenance and construction enterprise "Dnepro-Bug  Waterway" in partnership with regional authorities, organizations that deal with management of water resources, as well as civil society organizations from Belarus, Poland and Ukraine. The project is supported by the Ministry of Transport and Communications of the Republic of Belarus, Ministry of Infrastructure of the Republic of Poland, and Ministry of Transportation and Communication of Ukraine. 

Waterway connection E40 Dnieper-Vistula-Oder connects the basins of the Baltic Sea and the Black Sea. At the moment, this waterway is not used to its full potential, because the section from Brest to Warsaw along the Zachodni Buh is not navigable. The issue of the Dnieper-Vistula-Oder waterway restoration has been discussed on the national and European level for many years already; it had even been on the agenda of the UNECE Working Party on Inland Water Transport. However, until now, possible scenarios of the missing section’s restoration have not been examined in full detail.  

As the result of the two-year project, a permanent cross-border Commission on the development of the Dnieper-Vistula waterway will be established; its members will include representatives of regional authorities, ministries, research institutes, transport and logistics enterprises, as well as environmental organizations from three countries. Another major result of the project will be a comprehensive feasibility study for restoration of the Dnieper-Vistula waterway; the study will be developed with involvement of European experts from the EU programme NAIADES (Navigation and Inland Waterway Action and Development in Europe). Once the feasibility study is ready, experts and stakeholders will choose the most economically efficient and environmentally friendly scenario for the waterway restoration, which will be then approved at all levels. Project activities will start next month: in January 2014, experts of the partner organizations will gather in Pinsk for a working meeting, and in February-March 2014, the city of Brest will host an international Opening conference, which will be combined with the 1st session of the Commission on the Dnieper-Vistula waterway restoration.

Restoration of the E40 waterway will make it possible for the border regions of Poland, Belarus and Ukraine to become a multimodal transportation centre of international importance. It will also reduce traffic on roads, increase the flow of goods through the border regions, and contribute to the reduction of CO2 emissions due to the greater usage of water transport. In addition, with the E40 waterway restored, it will be possible to use the unique potential of the Dnepro-Bug waterway for the development of international water tourism.
