The ACCESS2NAPA project was approved under the EU call CEF – Transport in 2021, with the specific objective focused on the promotion of maritime and land accessibility of the ports involved”. The project is intended for studies or for the preparation of the project documentation that will lead to the start of construction work between 2021 and 2024 or until 2027. The CEF Transport 2020 program is co-financed in the amount of up to 50%. The rest of the funds will be provided by Luka Koper, d.d.

It is a 40-month project that began in July 2021 and in which the Port of Koper cooperates with the Central Adriatic Port Authority – Ravenna Port (Lead Partner), the North Adriatic Port Authority – the Port of Venice, the Eastern Port Authority Adriatic – the port of Trieste.

The reported investments are foreseen to improve the maritime access to the port and others related to the rail and road access (hence the name ACCESS2NAPA). The activities to be carried out in the project will include all the documentation envisaged, before the works are carried out (feasibility studies, analyzes, geomechanical surveys IDP, PGD, PZI, etc.). In the specific, for what regards the port of Koper, these are project documentation for the construction of new berths, extension of piers, deepening of the seabed in port basins, construction or extension of railway tracks and construction of road accesses to the railway system in the port.

The project is co-funded by EU through the CEF – Transport priority.

The activities for ACCESS2NAPA started in July 2021 and are expected to be completed by the end of 2024.
