The Portuguese Municipality of Braga has partnered with the Spanish City of Pontevedra in developing a Mobility and Traffic Management Study. This study will be an instrument that will establish a global strategy for intervention in accessibility and mobility management, and will define a set of actions and measures that contribute to the implementation of a more sustainable model, focusing on economic development, greater social cohesion and ensuring environmental protection and energy efficiency.
Both municipalities have been enhancing institutional cooperation, especially in Mobility and Urban Development. This collaboration has led to the Câmara de Braga and concello de Pontevedra, together with the Universities of Vigo and Minho, jointly submitting a project last March to the 2nd Call funding for INTERREG POCTEP – Operational Program for Cross-Border Cooperation between Spain and Portugal.
