Project description

The removal of infrastructural obstacles to the transport of goods and services is required to fully utilize and improve the social and economic potential of the Programme area. The project SIEMIANOWKA will be an important contribution to this goal. It aims at improving the security and mobility on the external border of the European Union through modernization of the rail border crossing in Siemianówka – i.e. Polish side of the border crossing point with Belarus, Siemianówka–Svislach.

The modernization of this transition will entail, among others, the construction of the administrative building for the needs of passage service, a helicopter landing pad, an observation footbridge and assembly of devices – railroad scale, equipment for the control of cisterns and railway carriages, equipment for monitoring the tracks and the area of passage.

The objectives of actions foreseen in the project are to prevent and combat illegal migration and smuggling, fight organized crime as well as counteract and eliminate illegal trade of rare and endangered species. Project implementation will be beneficial to the Border Guard officers, Customs Service officers, employees from the Border Crossing Ser-vice Department, as well as entrepreneurs and local government authorities. In the long-term perspective, the positive effects of the project are expected to be noticeable also to citizens living in the region due to its social and economic development fostered by the project’s results.
