Belarus and Poland to develop cross-border road infrastructure

Belarus and Poland are to develop their cross-border road infrastructure. On 28 June, the transport ministries of the two countries have signed a relevant intergovernmental agreement. The document will regulate the maintenance of bridges on the common sections of the border and at checkpoints. Apart from that, the construction of a car bridge in the crossing point Brest-Terespol is under discussion. To develop container transportation from Asia to Europe, the parties intend to erect a new railway bridge. The project will increase the points capacity from 14 to 40 train-pairs per day. The parties are eager to use the railroads more efficiently, for the benefit of the economies of Poland and Belarus.
