MINSK, 26 January (BelTA) – The number of trucks queuing up to leave Belarus for countries of the European Union has not changed substantially, BelTA learned from the State Border Committee of Belarus.
Poland and Lithuania still fail to honor the bilateral agreements on the throughput capacity of border checkpoints.
Personnel of the Polish border checkpoints cleared only 54% of the normal number of semi-trailer trucks in the last 24 hours. The route via the Kukuryki border crossing (the Kozlovichi border crossing on the Belarusian side) remains the busiest – over 1,000 vehicles.
Apart from that, the closure of the Polish border crossing Kuznica Bialostocka in early November 2021 continues having a substantial effect on the throughput capacity of all the border crossings in this direction and has resulted in an increased workload on other routes to the European Union.
Personnel of the Lithuanian border crossings cleared 77% of the amount of trucks the crossings can handle. The longest truck queue can be found on the way via the Lithuanian border checkpoint Medininkai (Kamenny Log on the Belarusian side) – 340 trucks.
Personnel of the Latvian border crossings honored their semi-truck clearance commitments in full.
