Road checkpoints at Ukrainian-Romanian border to operate in line with new rules

MOSCOW. June 1 (Interfax) - Ukraine and Romania are implementing a project to test an advance emergency notification system for reducing queues at automobile crossing points at the border between the two countries, Ukrainian media reported citing the State Border Guard Service's social media post.

"Starting June 1, a pilot project has been launched at the Ukrainian-Romanian border to test an advance emergency notification system to help reduce queues before checkpoints," it said.

The testing of the advance notification system aims to determine the optimal number of vehicles that can be handled at road checkpoints by the customs authorities of each party during one shift. It should also help coordinate interaction during emergencies at checkpoints to ensure smooth passage of vehicles across the border.

The pilot project is being implemented at the Orlovka-Isaccea, Krasnoilsk-Vicovu de Sus, and Dyakovo-Halmeu checkpoints, and its testing should take three months.
