Roads are the basis of everyday mobility for large scale business, SMEs and population. Roads connecting territories of neighboring countries are especially important for development of cross-border cooperation, so, their low-quality can be a serious barrier for international mobility.
The car road “Kola-Verhnetulomskiy-BCP Lotta” is the shortest distance from the Russian port city Murmansk to the North of Finland (Inari municipality). The project “General Furnishing and Surface Infrastructure Development of the Kola-Verhnetulomskiy-BCP Lotta Road” has significantly improved transport, economic, tourist and cultural links between neighboring countries by creating equally comfortable and safe conditions for road traffic on both sides of the Russian-Finnish border through investments into road infrastructure (guarding rails, information signs, parking places, etc.). Project activities also have a positive impact on the lives of people living in municipalities along the route.
