The key topic for 2020 is the concept for linking and providing access to key POHO2030 locations. The creation of cycle routes, cycle paths and walking routes is one of many projects planned for the mid and long term with the aim of revitalizing the region and opening it up to the public. Currently these projects are in the investment planning phase, and they are being designed in accordance with the concept developed in 2019 for cycling and walking infrastructure to interconnect POHO2030 sites. The total length of the planned new cycle routes and cycle paths will be around 90 kilometres.
Activities in the investment planning phase: >/strong>
Maps will be produced to help cyclists find their way around the network. Proposed locations for map panels:
In order to ensure that POHO2030 locations are fully integrated with their surroundings, it is essential to provide safe road-crossing points for pedestrians and cyclists. Access to the area by cycle or on foot is currently difficult; there is a lack of safe access routes from main population centres as well as junction points, and there is also a lack of marked cycling/walking routes and related installations.
These routes will be integrated with current and planned projects within the area of interest (Havířov, Karviná, Orlová, Doubrava) extending outwards to the Žermanice and Těrlicko reservoirs. They will also be integrated with other plans that directly or indirectly relevant to the development of the region, including cross-border cooperation with Poland.
We are collaborating closely with the partners who signed the Memorandum of Cooperation – cities and municipalities Karviná, Havířov, Orlová, Dobrava, Horní Suchá, Stonava, the SMOOK municipalities association, as well as companies Asental Land, OKD, PKP CARGO INTERNATIONAL, Veolia CZ and other important stakeholders (the Czech Tourist Club etc.).
11/2020: completion of the draft versions of investment plans, launch of consultations with affected organizations
06/2021: final versions of the investment plans (and consultations)
The investment plans will be used by the individual municipalities within the area of interest when launching the project preparation phase.
