Project Summary

The project intends to strengthen the interregional exchange of traffic related effects and monitoring results in the Alps. In the participating regions, monitoring networks are already established and results are available. The idea is to use these results and establish the interregional exchange about the interpretation and consequences: Identify the road traffic related effects on the Alpine space, analyses of the state of every partner region, define a set of indicators for sustainable development, discuss past and actual values of the indicators, formulate interpretations of the actual and future state in the regions. The main objective is to identify common measures to reduce negative impacts and to increase quality of life assuring a sustainable approach. Measures will be formulated on the administrational level where the regional authorities will be involved. The activities are focusing on the three severely threatened transalpine crossing area Montblanc, Gotthard and Brenner.

Project Objectives

• Strengthen interregional exchange of traffic related effects and monitoring results;
• use available results and establish exchange about interpretation and consequences;
• identify road traffic related effects in the Alpine space;
• analyse every partner region
• define environmental indicators;
• discuss values of indicators;
• formulate interpretations.
