Project description

Increased mobility on the Polish-Belarusian border relates to economic development of the cross-border regions. The major problems limiting smooth traffic of people and goods between countries is not adapted infrastructure of border crossing points. In Kuźnica Białostocka–Bruzhi, one of the most important crossing points, the current road has only two lanes in each direction. In consequence the passengers spend long hours of waiting for the custom clearance every day.

Answering these needs the partners of Road project are going to modernize and expand the road system on border crossing point in Kuźnica Białostocka–Bruzhi. Within the project, the extending from two road lanes up to four lanes in each direction with pedestrian sidewalk will be conducted. Separate lanes will be created for heavy goods vehicles, passenger cars, buses, VIP. Moreover, in the space between the entry and exit lanes new control booth will be constructed. The building will be covered with a steel canopy to protect against rain and snow the control platform. Furthermore, each lane will be equipped with an automatic road blockers system (bollards). In addition, the modification of underground and overground technical infrastructure (sanitary, electric, telecom and IT), reconstruction of the existing fences will be provided. As a result the average time of servicing vehicles shall decrease from 8 to 5 minutes.

The road widening in both border posts will improve the capacity and will speed up the border control process. Together with simultaneous project Pavilions the investment shall reduce the border queues in sensitive periods of the year, not only in the crossing point platform, but also along the national road No.19 leading to the border. The quality of services for travellers transport, and flow of goods within international trade will increase, what will positively influence the cross-border partnership of Poland and Belarus.
