Towards a more Integrated Approach

In the “Sintropher Plus” project extension, partners pursued follow-on work on key themes arising from the original Sintropher feasibility studies and  pilot investments. Firstly to test the innovative low-cost tram-based solutions in different city/regional contexts, in order to improve regional connectivity. Secondly, to promote a more proactive approach to investment in these links as part of an integrated territorial strategy through mechanisms such as master plansor “corridor” plans - to help realise wider economic and territorial development benefits, and in turn  strengthen the investment case.
