The long traffic jams and tailbacks at the border crossing between Dubrovnik and Trebinje could soon be solved. According to a report in the Sarajevo Times the outdated border will be completely overhauled with a new modern border crossing in the pipeline.
It has been announced by the Bosnia and Herzegovinian authorities that the new border crossing will have several lanes and even a lane just for trade. The border crossing at Ivanica is a huge problem during the summer months as, due to its poor organisation, traffic is often backed up for hours.
“There will be several lanes for entrance and exit, with all necessary premises for officials of the Border Police and other inspection services. The border crossing will be entirely compliant with the standards of the European Union,” commented the spokesman of the Indirect Taxation Authority Ratko Kovačević. It is reported that an international tender to carry out the works will be announced this week.
And with the possible solution of the Bosnian border in the planning stage the Croatian border is also expected to get a facelift. It is expected that the Croatian border control will be reconstructed this winter in preparation for the next summer season. With both borders upgraded the hours-long delays should be a thing of the past.
