The major district town of Aue is planning to improve the range of industrial and commercial sites and acquire plots in the area of the freight railway yards for economic development purposes. The sustainable conversion of the urban mining site (formerly pit 20) on the railway site therefore required the drawing-up of a subsequent use concept that would comprise an investigation of different options, taking account of development and the associated costs.

The topics of the 2nd SoNorA University Think Tank conference are:

• Infrastructure between the Adriatic and the Baltic Sea
• Transeuropean Networks of Transport in Central Europe
• Simulation and modelling, forecasting and infrastructure

The papers are dealing with the opportunities and challenges of an improvement of the south-northwards oriented infrastructure in the area between the Adriatic and the Baltic Sea. The possibilities of a realisation of specific railway sections are discussed as well as the role of the European instrument of Transeuropean networks on the development of transport
infrastructure in Central Europe. Furthermore, aspects of the harbour-hinterland connection of ports, the inclusion of certain regions in the south-north network as well as the freight transport demand are analysed by the authors.

This report gives on overview of the situation on each national logistics market in the FLAVIA corridor. The national overviews are summarised to give a comprehensive status quo of the logistics market within the FLAVIA corridor. The results serve as a basis for further project actions and will show differences between the situations in the involved countries and will mark out common problems which have to be solved.

European Train Control System defines standards for future train control systems, allowing direct services between different member states in Europe. But due to the high costs of their implementation these approaches in the first step focus on long distance services and bilateral solutions are needed for regional railway services which for financial reasons cannot fulfill these requirements on a short and mid-term basis. This study focuses on such bilateral solutions especially for the German-Polish border. Nevertheless similar problems occur between other member states as well and therefore a transfer of experiences can be useful for other regions as well.

BATCo transport model examines the effects of specific measures to facilitate so-called green transport alternatives such as rail along the BATCo axis. The measures, defined within the framework of the BATCo project, were incorporated into several scenarios aimed at promoting this target along the Baltic Adriatic Corridor.

The TRANS-TOOLS, an European transport network model, covering 37.000 links (road, rail), 32.000 nodes (road, rail) and 1.441 traffic zones (in 42 countries in Europe) was used in order to develop BATCo model.
