RWGTL meeting in Tromsø, March 2016

The RWGTL aims to establish a working network and heavy freight network in the Barents area and create conditions for cross-border passenger transport. The RWGTL helps decision makers, planners, authorities and companies to see the region as a single transport area.

The work is based on studies made during the project, the national transport strategies and the ministerial level Joint Barents Transport Plan and is made in close cooperation with BEATA and NDPTL.
