Conclusions of Danube Ministerial Meeting

By Katja Rosner 5 hours ago

During the TEN-T days in Rotterdam, the Transport Ministers of the Danube riparian states discussed the process of implementing the Fairway Rehabilitation and Maintenance Master Plan for the Danube and its navigable tributaries. PA1a, in cooperation with the FAIRway Danube project, delivered the basis for this discussion by means of the updated National Action Plans.
In their Conclusions, the ministers have agreed to step up fairway rehabilitation and maintenance efforts in 2016 and beyond in order to improve fairway conditions according to the relevant target values defined in the Fairway Master Plan. The ministers announced to allocate the necessary national budgets as outlined in the National Action Plans and to make full use of EU co-financing opportunities for the implementation of required measures.

PA1a and the FAIRway Danube project will continue to monitor the implementation of the Danube Fairway Master Plan. Contributions to the annual or biennial follow- up meetings of the Transport Ministers will be prepared.

Update of the National Action Plans

By Katja Rosner on 3rd June

The first set of National Action Plans (called Roadmaps by then) has been elaborated in line with the ministerial conclusions of 3rd December 2014 by which the Fairway Rehabilitation and Maintenance Master Plan was endorsed.

In regular updates the status of critical locations, hydrological conditions, rehabilitation and maintenance activities and cost of the last year are reported in a harmonized way for the whole Danube. In addition an outlook on planned investments, operational budgets is included. The analysis of financing gaps is crucial to support improvements.

Whereas the first version was based upon the initiative of the Technical Secretariat for PA1a and the Danube Region Strategy, the follow-up versions are produced within the framework of the CEF-financed FAIRway Danube. Updates are planned twice a year, in May and October.
