EU Supports Port of Bastia Development

The EU’s TEN-T Program will co-finance with over €600,000 a market and technical design study to extend Corsica’s Port of Bastia.

The project will allow increased traffic to the port, leading to better transport connections between Corsica and the rest of Europe.

As the traffic from mainland Europe to the Port of Bastia is steadily increasing, the local authorities are looking for a solution to accept more and larger ships to the port. This project will help the Corsican Assembly to select the most suitable technical solution for the port’s extension.

The studies will look into various aspects of the port extension, to allow for more intense and diverse ship transport. It will come up with the technical design of two 2 km-long embankments and berths connecting the port to the regional rail and main European road network, as well as financial and environmental studies preparing the construction.

The project is to be completed by December 2015.
