Project: Motorway of the Sea Rostock-Gedser

Motorway of the Sea Rostock-Gedser

Lead partner: Port of Rostock

The Action is part of a global project, covering infrastructure initiatives on the transport axis Copenhagen-Berlin: extension of railway Rostock-Berlin, upgrading of European road E55 into the port of Rostock, introduction of new ferries.

The wider project links to TEN-T priority project 1. This transport axis has seen a growing demand. The current ferries are operating at capacity limits and have reached their technical lifetime. They will be replaced by new ferries (2012), which will double capacity and improve operational reliability, environmental performance and service costs.
