The number of lanes for trucks has been increased at the Krakovets checkpoint
In the Lviv region, at the Krakovets-Korchova checkpoint, the number of lanes for trucks has been increased and six pavilions have been set up for customs and passport control. This was announced on Monday, June 20, by the head of the Lviv OVA Maksym Kozytsky.
As part of the joint Ukrainian-Polish Open Border project, the number of truck lanes in Krakow has been increased from 4 to 10. Later, 5 more truck stops will be set up and a new bus terminal will be built.
“In just 10 days, the capacity at this checkpoint has been increased by 50%. Now it is much easier to cross the border through Krakovets-Korchova. We hope that this border will not be soon, “Maksym Kozytskyi said.
It should be noted that the construction of the Krakow checkpoint started on June 10. The general reconstruction will last for two years. The cost of the work is 7 million euros, which is a loan from an intergovernmental agreement between Poland and Ukraine. After the upgrade, the capacity in Krakow will increase to 1,300 vehicles in 20 lanes (currently there are 500 cars in 8 lanes).
From June 19, buses will temporarily not be able to leave for Poland via Krakowiec. The admission of buses to Ukraine at this checkpoint remains unchanged.
