The participants of the Scandria®Alliance’s General Assembly agreed to focus on the potentials of cooperation between urban nodes along the ScanMed corridor. Guido Beermann, Chairperson of the General Assembly and Minister of Transport of Brandenburg, emphasised their increased importance, especially in European transport policy.
Guido Beermann, Chairperson of the General Assembly of the Scandria®Alliance and Minister of Transport of Brandenburg: „We want to further consolidate the Scandria®Alliance as an active and attractive cooperation platform for cities and regions for climate-friendly and multimodal mobility and transport solutions. Therefore, we are expanding our focus to the urban nodes along the ScanMed corridor. Because cities do not end abruptly at their borders, but go beyond them as part of a functional urban area. We see this in the example of Berlin and Potsdam, whose functionality radiates out into the peripheral areas and various regional nodes. These so-called ‘urban nodes’ are playing an increasingly important role in European cooperation and especially for cross-border transport policy. The European Commission’s proposal for revised guidelines for the development of the trans-European Transport Network (TEN-T) also takes this into account. I look forward to further constructive cooperation with the European Commission and the European coordinator for the Scandinavian-Mediterranean Corridor, Mr Pat Cox, on the concerns of urban nodes along this important European north-south axis.“
