NECL II - Kick-offs in November 2010 in Sundsvall and January 2011 in Norway

The development of the east west Midnordic Transport Corridor began at the beginning of November 2010 as the nordic partnership gathered to Sundsvall for an officiall kick-off of the North East Cargo Link II -project. Another kick-off was held for especially Norwegian partners in the middle of January 2011 in Trondheim.

The development work ahead is challenging, but benefits all Midnordic regions and Baltic Sea Region.

North East Cargo Link II -project aims to develop and promote the east-west Midnordic Transport Corridor:
- by improving roads, railways and intermodal solutions in the corridor and
- by developing an ICT system for optimization of goods transport in the corridor.

Removing goods from roads to railway and sea will contribute sustainability. The goal is a sustainable, environmentally friendly Midnordic Green Transport Corridor.

The goal is to show the possibilities, potential and benefits of the Midnordic transport corridor to business actors, decision makers and other related actors.

22 partners involved represent eg. Transport Authorities, County Councils and County Administrative Boards in Sweden and Regional Councils in Finland, Fylken in Norway, Mid Sweden University, municipalities in all countries, non-profit organization Midnordic Committe.

Important associated partners are eg. national transport agencies in Norway, Sweden and Finland, chambers of commerces, development agencies, as well as the Nordic Council of Ministers and NECLA.

The NECL II -project will continue the work that was first started in late 90´s and 2003-2006, in Interreg IIB-project.
