Between July 2015 and June 2020 the EU FAIRway Danube project significantly increases the knowledge on shallow sections of the Danube waterway.

The EU FAIRway project takes a corridor approach so that the fairway routing can be optimised for the entire Danube. A higher measuring density improves the data on the navigability of shallow sections and provides an essential basis for the coordination of national rehabilitation measures.

With the project, the waterway managers from Danube countries work on the implementation of the “Fairway Rehabilitation and Maintenance Master Plan of the Danube” to ensure navigability throughout the year. Coordinated national action plans for deployment are elaborated and the necessary equipment to carry out pilot activities for hydrological services is contracted.

Danube ministers announced to allocate the necessary funds and to use EU co-financing opportunities for implementation. INE member viadonau coordinates the project.

Under the motto “Committed to the increased safety, efficiency and environmental friendliness of inland navigation”, FAIRway Danube will be carried out in a harmonized way in 6 countries: Austria, Slovakia, Hungary, Croatia, Bulgaria and Romania under the umbrella of the Innovation and Networks Executive Agency (INEA) of the European Commission.
