Activity 1: Spatial Planning and Spatial Research - Projects

Accessibility Analysis of the Baltic Sea Region (2006)


Client:  BSR INTERREG III B Joint Secretariat (Rostock)
Partner:  S&W Urban and Regional Research (S&W) (Dortmund)

The objective of this study is to provide an up-to date picture of the accessibility situation of the BSR through a set of appropriate indicators. The study is organised along a number of different accessibility indicators which were partly based on the indicators developed in the transportoriented studies of the ESPON 2006 Programme. In this study, seven accessibility indicators will be elaborated for the BSR:

  • Car travel times to rail stations

  • Car and rail travel times to commercial airports

  • Lorry travel times to transport terminals

  • Car and rail travel times to large cities

  • Travel times between BSR cities

  • Multimodal potential accessibility to population and GDP

  • Mobile telephone penetration and internet access



The analysis will be carried out for the territory of the BSR including the eligible areas in Russia and Belarus. In order to allow a straightforward interpretation of the indicators not only in the BSR context but also in the wider European context, the neighbouring territories will be included in the analysis.
RRG is responsible for the update and provision of the transport network database, for the calculation of a part of the indicators and for the generation of appropriate maps.
