INTER BIKE II

Development of multimodal connections along the Adriabike cycling path
Priority Axis 2
Cooperating for implementation of low carbon strategies and action plans
Specific Objective: 
OS 2.1.
Investment Priority: 
PI 4e
Typology: 
Standard
Overall Objective of the Project: 

To promote the use of sustainable types of transport along the Adriabike cycling route. The project’s objective is to implement the sustainable mobility proposals and commitments, and to reduce the impact of traffic on the environment, in keeping with the development strategies of the local and regional communities throughout the project area. The objective is consistent with the main SEAP (Sustainable Energy Action Plan) objectives, which aim to reduce CO2 emissions and energy consumption in the transport sector.

Project summary: 

The Inter Bike II project promotes cycling as a form of sustainable mobility while running daily errands or discovering sights of the cross-border area. The Inter Bike II will establish new pilot multimodal bike and bus services along the Adriabike cycling route which connects the Alps with the Adriatic sea. Pilot multimodal connections were introduced in 2014 in the Friuli Venezia Giulia Region. In 2018 the Municipalities of Koper and Monfalcone launched an experimental cross-border bike and bus service between Koper, Trieste, Monfalcone, Cormons and Grado. The bus service connected Adriabike and Alpe Adria (Salzburg – Grado) cycling routes. The service was performed again in summer 2019. Local Action Group of Eastern Veneto introduced in August and September 2019 a pilot bike and boat service along the Lemene river. At the end of 2019 a second boat service started  between Bibione and Caorle; two popular holiday resorts in the Venetian Lagoon. The boat will operate by April 2020. An investment will also be made by the Municipality of Koper who will build in 2020 a new section of a cycling path leading to Adriabike in Hrvatini, near the border.

 

Moreover, the partnership intends to incentivise cross-border cooperation between local and regional governments’ spatial and traffic planning and promote sustainable mobility. A cross-border council is being set-up consisting of representatives of decision makers and stakeholders. Networking among tourist service providers is promoted and improvement of services for cyclists. The partners have already started these activities in the first Inter Bike project. The Inter Bike II total budget amounts to 1 mio eur. It will be completed by October 2020.

Main results: 

The most important result is the implementation of one bike and bus pilot service and two bike and boat services. The bus equipped with bike trailer connected in 2018 and 2019 Koper with Grado, coinciding with Cormons, a crossroad with the Alpe Adria trail. The first experimental bike and boat service operated on the Lemene river in 2019. The second service between Bibione and Caorle in the Venetian Lagoon will be available by the end of April 2020.

The Municipality of Koper will build 380 m of a new section of a cycling path in Hrvatini. Along the cycling roads in the Municipality of Isola signage was set. Night signs in the channel of Lovi in the Venetian Lagoon were installed.

An important project result is the platform of long distance and local cycling routes of the western Slovenia. It offers a complete information which was previously available on various websites. Besides it tends to promote the area as a unique cycling destination.

At the strategic level a cross-border group is being established with the purpose of exchange of information regarding spatial planning, development of sustainable mobility and cycling tourism. The group will promote cooperation between local and regional authorities in future development of the cross-border area.
