The Lead Beneficiary of the project is the Podlaski Voivode (PL), whereas the State Customs Authorities of the Republic of Belarus is a partner.
The road border crossing Kuźnica Białostocka - Bruzgi was opened in 1990 and is a strategic crossing on the Polish-Belarusian border. It is meant for passenger and goods traffic. Due to the large number of heavy goods vehicles cleared, it is necessary to reconstruct the customs and passport control pavilions. The activities planned within the project are aiming to improve the border crossing service simultaneously improving the security of border clearances.
Four passport and customs control pavilions will be rebuilt and two new pavilions will be constructed. Dynamic weights that allow weighing vehicles while in motion will be mounted. More details concerning the project may be found in the flashcard below.
