Black Sea ring road to be built



Black Sea ring road to be built

12 countries have agreed to create a 7,500 km ring road around the Black Sea.

Economic cooperation is the main objective, but the road could bring much needed tourists - and their money - to new areas of Eurasia.

The foreign ministers of Turkey, Russia, Ukraine, Greece, Albania, Bulgaria, Romania, Georgia, Azerbaijan, Armenia, Moldova and Serbia all agreed to the project at a conference of the Black Sea Economic Cooperation (BSEC) organisation.

AdvertisementExisting roads will be upgraded and linked up under the project.

12 trucks, one from each country, were sent to test the current state of roads and make recommendations.

'Road construction and rehabilitation is vital to build ties among the EU, Black Sea and Asian countries,' a BSEC statement read.

'The road is of extreme importance. It would facilitate economic cooperation and conflict resolution,' BSEC secretary general Leonidas Chrysanthopoulos added.

The route would travel through some hot spots including areas like Armenia, Turkey, and Georgia.

The cost of the project and date of completion were not set.

The BSEC represents a region with the second largest source of oil and natural gas and annual foreign trade of over €220bn

Thats good news but only Turkey, Georgia, Russia, Ukraine, Moldovia, Romania and Bulgaria borders Black sea. Can you explain why Turkey, Georgia and Armania are "Hot spots" ?

Yeah, Serbia isn't even quite near the Black sea, and so is Armenia, and more; Azerbaijan.

The road will pass through the following cities (I translate from Russian, so the spelling may be wrong):
Istambul, Samsun, Trabzon - Turkey
Batumi, Poti - Georgia
Erevan - Armenia
Baku - Azerbaijan
Novorossiisk, Rostov on Don, Taganrog - Russia
Mariupol, Melitopol, Odessa - Ukraine
Kishineu - Moldavia
Bukureshti, Konstanza - Romania
Haskovo, Sofia - Bulgaria
Nis, Beograd - Serbia
Tirana - Albania
Komotini, Aleksandropulos - Greece

I don't see the relation of Baku, Nis, Beograd and Tirana to a Black Sea Ringroad.

it's a whole regional development, and it involves them into the project, since they will benefit from it as landlocked nations that need access to the Black Sea's various activities all around

in my opinion the road won't be built in the next 30-40 years because there are so many divergences between the countries involved in the project(ex. russia-georgia).Also the road would pass through Moldova, the least developed country in Europe.and i don't see the point of it since it's more cheaper to transport goods by water, and it would probably take less time to travel from constanta to batumi by ship than by road, considering the border controls.

Border controls

Russia should also easen border controls, both for trucks and for tourists. Today trucks can have to wait for days to pass the border control, and tourists for hours. For trucks this is a worse barrier than the road quality. Also the visa application is a big obstacle. The driver must leave the passport at the embassy and can't drive during this time, and has to do all contacts in person.

This is the biggest obstacle for transport and tourism into Russia. Ukraine has however no visa requirement anymore for EU people, and can expect more tourism.
