Joint Barents Transport Plan report (2013)

Proposals for development of transport corridors for further studies

The Barents Euro-Arctic Region

Economic and social development in the Barents Region requires better transport connections, and the aim for the work has been a joint approach to look at the future need for transport in the Barents Region.

Norway, Sweden and Finland have prepared strategic studies on the need for transport infrastructure in the High North. Russia has federal plans to develop the infrastructure on their territory in the Barents region. These studies and plans are mainly focused on national priorities, but also emphasize the need for a Barents approach in planning future transport solutions and interventions in this region.
