Main project results:
Improved mobility in the area of Predjama – increased use of sustainable forms of mobility; successful cooperation in the field of sustainable mobility between project partners from Slovenia and Norway; greater involvement of local providers in sustainable offer; reduced environmental impact in the area.
Municipality of Postojna aims to reduce motorized traffic in the wider area of municipality to contribute to climate change mitigation. Predjama, a popular tourist location which has seen a threefold increase in visits in the last 10 years, is one of the targeted areas that will benefit from a traffic solution. Due to insufficient number of parking spaces, expanded tourist offer and large numbers of visitors, the peak season usually faces a parking chaos, which calls for a sustainable solution that involves a reduced number of cars at the location but retains visitor numbers. The main goal of the project is to support climate change mitigation through the development of a mobility plan and pilot implementation of key measures. The project also aims to reduce motorized traffic in the area of Predjama, a tourist location experiencing heavy traffic, and encourage target groups for the uptake of sustainable mobility solutions. The project tackles several challenges – it aims to improve mobility management and introduce sustainable mobility with the aim of reducing traffic and retaining visitor numbers while solving the mobility problem facing local residents. It also aims to include sustainable, feasible and attractive adapted forms of mobility in the mobility plan without excessive interference in nature, engage residents and include their needs in the preparation of the mobility plan, transfer good practices of the Norwegian project partner to the Slovenian area and change travel habits to contribute to climate change mitigation through a successful implementation of the mobility plan and an awareness-raising campaign.
