The analysis had been based on another document: The analysis of demand for freight and passenger transport on the waterway E70. It assumes that, after the adequate parameters are restored, cargo transport of 5.5-6 million tonnes can be expected on the waterway E70 and, after the proposed investments, it is expected to increase to 8.5 million tonnes, out of which 4 million tonnes will be achieved owing to the linking of the Oder and Vistula and to 4.5 million tonnes on the lower Vistula sections. This state of affairs is targeted to be achieved by 2025. A rapid development of water tourism is also predicted, including river cruises.
In Bydgoszcz, participants tentatively discussed the promotion strategies for the waterway E70. Also, work was presented on the preparation of the IWW E70 Guide for Water Sports Enthusiasts.
