The Danube is the second-largest river in Europe. The port of Komárom located at river km 1,767 of the Danube, in the proximity of both Bratislava and Budapest, is a crossroad for flows and transhipment of freight between inland waterway, rail and road transport. It is an inland waterway core port located on a pre-identified section of the Rhine – Danube Core Network Corridor. Its development, in line with the project related to the construction of the bridge linking the Hungarian port of Komárom and the Slovak port of Komárno, will contribute to enhance the connections between different modes of transport allowing an increase of freight handled along the Slovak–Hungarian sections of the Danube and the overall Rhine-Danube core network corridor.
The proposed Action entails preparing a master plan and a feasibility study for the future expansion and modernization of the port of Komárno. Both will serve as a decision-making tool for the selection of the best options for future expansion and modernization. In the long term, the Action will contribute to increase the port’s intermodal capacity, improve the services, enhance interoperability, support modal shift, increase safety, decongest the city of Komárno, and reduce CO2 emissions, noise and air pollution.
The preparation of the Master Plan and the Feasibility study for the development of the Port of Komárno will be coordinated with the “Master Plan and feasibility study for the development of the TEN-T ports, including Komarom Port” along the Hungarian section of the Danube (PA1A142).
Danube countries, increase in the inland water transport mode as one of the environmentally friendly transport modes. The modal shift can have positive impact on the overall transport relations.
