Influence of Maritime Transport Development on Urban Development of Ports (The Case of Klaipėda)

Eglė Truskauskienė


There is no break line dividing two different worlds of a port and city. It is a territory, sometimes wider, sometimes narrower. The development of a port, city and inbetween territories depends on the development of maritime transport whose needs are always growing. The only way to develop port and city structures and to achieve a certain urban quality is to look after territories of interfaces. Another task is to classify maritime transport and all installations using the port life cycle and to find possibilities of requalification in order to make territories more effective for the port and more open for the city. This framework should be adapted to Klaipėda seaport because the problem of the port and city separation is not solved here. The territories, provided for the port development, are going to make separation deeper. The development of maritime transport could be turned into share of the waterfront in the best way for the port as well as for the city.
