POLY5 project, moving from the cognitive framework developed to plan large scale transport infrastructure and integrate it in fragile territories,  has built a series of tools to support this approach.

Project partners are now working on testing these tools at local level, through a series of pilot actions ranging from solutions on sustainable mobility, to measures to better support large construction sites, in terms of accommodation of workers and workforce needed in order to enable local enterprises to seize the opportunities offered by the presence of these major works; from actions focusing on logistics nodes, to solutions to define best choices to build a large scale infrastructure taking into account local development necessities.

All actions where developed in a “full scale laboratory” where a major transport infrastructure (the so called Mediterranean Corridor) is being built or planned and were carried out through a constant involvement of local and transnational stakeholders.

Through 9 pilot actions, POLY5 partners tested the polycentric development toolkit for the integration of major infrastructures into local territories.

Where construction sites are operative (as in the Maurienne and Susa Valleys, the French-Italian cross border area where the Lyon-Turin new high speed railway link is being built) partners focused on actions related to local economy support, accommodation of workers and exploitation of excavated material.

Where  the infrastructure is in its planning phase, sustainable mobility solutions were transposed into real contexts feasibility studies in the Province of Gorizia, and in ICT tools to enhance carpooling in the Ljubljana Urban Region. On the Province of Venice area, a multi-criteria matrix was applied to choose best solution to integrate and mitigate the impacts of major works. Finally, in the area of Sempeter-Vrtojba, a study on the spatial planning of logistic nodes focused on the optimization of benefits for local enterprises.

POLY5 will finalize pilot actions and will work on their transferability in different contexts. This will be achieved through round tables involving local and transnational stakeholders, to understand how elements of POLY5 toolkit can be generalized. The partnership will also organize three transnational events: in Venice (May 2014) to present pilot action results, in Turin (June 2014) to present round tables results and in Vienna, for the Final Conference (September 2014).
