Serbia and the Republic of Macedonia to Build a Joint Railway Border Crossing Point

Serbia and the Republic of Macedonia will build a joint railway border crossing point Tabanovce. The project will provide a reduction in train travel time, better cooperation between customs services, border police and veterinary and radiological control services of the two countries, BTA reported.

The project envisages the construction of an area of about 2,400 m2, worth about EUR 4.5 million, to accommodate border police officers, customs administrations, inspectors and employees of state-owned railway companies of both countries. Macedonian Transport and Communications Minister Goran Sugareski commented that joint inspections will shorten travel time of passenger trains on this line by one hour and on transport - by two.

The project also includes the construction of a new road to Tabanovce and a new treatment plant for improving the water supply. The Macedonian government is expected to apply for resources from the European funds until the end of 2018. Support has already been received from the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development. The construction is planned to start in 2020.
