LNK Industries performs reconstruction works at Latvia – Belarus border crossing points

To gain insight into reconstruction and modernization processes at border crossing points “Pāternieki” and “Silene” on the border of Latvia and Belarus, which are implemented by the company LNK Industries, these border crossing points were visited by representatives of Latvia and Belarus.

Reconstruction and infrastructure improvement works at the border crossing point “Pāternieki” were commenced by “LNK Industries” in May 2019, commissioned by “State Real Estate”. The works are implemented according to the specified schedule, and approximately 20% of reconstruction works have been completed so far, without delaying operation of the border crossing point. The works are planned to be completed by the end of 2019.

As a result of implementation of the project, the border crossing point will become more advanced, safer and more convenient, reducing the time required for crossing the border. To make the operation of these border crossing points more efficient, the perimeter security system, video surveillance system, electronic traffic organisation informative panels and vehicle forced stopping equipment will be modernized.

At the moment, it is planned to create a common traffic organisation system in the neutral area of both Latvia - Belarus border crossing points “Pāternieki” and “Silene” (intermediary area between both Latvia - Belarus border crossing points) for all types of vehicles, as well as for pedestrians and cyclists.
