Reconstruction of the Belarusian-Lithuanian border checkpoint Kamenny Log to begin in 2019
According to the Chairman of the State Customs Committee of Belarus the reconstruction of the Belarus-Luthuanian border checkpoint Kamenny Log is supposed to begin in 2019.
In particular, plans have been made to adjust the infrastructure in the border checkpoints located at the Belarusian-Lithuanian border. The main purpose of the reconstruction is to triple the throughput capacity up to 6,000 vehicles daily (3,500 cars, 2,400 trucks, and 100 buses). The border checkpoint will get a total of 32 vehicle clearance channels – 16 outgoing channels and 16 incoming ones. The direction of each channel can be adjusted to match the traffic. Customs clearance procedures will be expedited when a stationary vehicle inspection system will be deployed instead of the existing mobile one. Apart from that, a digital system will be introduced to automatically distribute vehicles across the parking lot. While the border checkpoint Kamenny Log undergoes reconstruction, its workload will be handled by other checkpoints located at the Belarusian-Lithuanian border. The reconstruction of the border checkpoint Kamenny Log is supposed to be funded by a loan from the European Investment Bank (EIB). The construction of a transport and logistics hub with spacious warehouse premises has begun near the border checkpoint Kamenny Log. A customs clearance station will be opened there.
