Short title: Svendubre BCP and Bugieda Berth
LARGE SCALE PROJECT
PRIORITY 2: ADDRESSING COMMON CHALLENGES
Measure 2.3.: Improvement of infrastructure and equipment related to the border crossing points
Beneficiary: Directorate of Border Crossing Infrastructure under the Ministry of Transport and Communications of the Republic of Lithuania (Vilnius, Lithuania)
Partners: State Border Guard Service at the Ministry of the Interior of the Republic of Lithuania (Vilnius, Lithuania), Grodno Oblast Executive Committee (Grodno, Belarus)
PROBLEM: The infrastructure and conditions for the border checking at the Švendubrė-Privalka state border river crossing point (Lithuania-Belarus) are poor and insufficient; the state border protection during the out-of-season period and at night is not ensured. This negatively affects the travelling persons flow and the Lithuanian-Belarusian cross-border cooperation.
OBJECTIVE: The project aims at improving (creating) the infrastructure of the Švendubrė Seasonal River border crossing point (BCP) and ensuring the relevant inland waters border security by construction and installation of the border checks infrastructure and the berth for border guards and other vessels in the vicinity of Bugieda.
The project resulted in the possibility to cross the Lithuanian-Belarusian border by the river Nemunas.
The Svendubre seasonal border crossing point and the Bugieda berth for border guard vessels were constructed and specialised equipment installed.
The possibilities to cross the Lithuanian-Belarusian border by sailing in passenger ships or kayaks were created thus improving the conditions for water tourism across the borders.
Construction of the Bugieda berth for the border guard vessels has improved the protection of the Lithuanian-Belarusian border.
