NATIONAL PORT DEVELOPMENT MASTERPLAN
The port of Komárom located at 1,767th river km of the Danube, both close to Bratislava and Budapest, is a key cross point for flows and transhipment of freight between inland waterway, rail and road transport.
Its development, in line with the Action 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 preparation of the National Port Development Masterplan, feasibility study and 20 case studies for the overall ports development along the Hungarian section of the Danube will be coordinated by the Masterplan for the development of inland ports along the Slovak section of the Danube.
Project co-funded by European Union funds (ERDF).
A projekt a Duna Transznacionális Programból, az Európai Regionális Fejlesztési Alap támogatásával, az Európai Unió és Magyarország társfinanszírozásával valósul meg.
