The aim of the Border Crossing Point (BCP) Terehova infrastructure development project is to eliminate the existing obstacles for the successful movement of persons and goods across the border of the Republic of Latvia and the Russian Federation.
In the 1st stage of the modernisation project, it is planned to build a new customs control building for in-depth inspection, rebuild and expand six existing control pavilions and canopies, equip canopies with electronic signs to operatively change lane designation during rush hour, to rebuild rainwater sewerage, heating, electricity and communication networks, to improve lighting in the control area, to carry out reconstruction of treatment plants, to improve the quality of asphalt pavement in the design territory.
The project is implemented in partnership with the State Committee for Economic Development and Investment Policy of the Pskov Region, which will conduct an information campaign for border crossers.
The development of BCP “Terehova” will be a significant benefit for the residents of our country, entrepreneurs and Latvian guests. As a result of the project, the busiest border crossing point on the eastern border of Latvia, which is also the EU's external border, will be partially modernised. Improving the infrastructure for border and customs controls and following the suitable control technologies will make control procedures faster and more efficient. Thus, the economic border between Latvia and the EU will be better protected.
The synchronised development of border crossing points in both neighbouring countries has a significant positive impact both on the promotion of fair business and on the tasks and functions of the services that provide control functions at the state border. In order to promote entrepreneurship, fast and predictable border crossing of both countries is ensured when moving goods. The control services are provided with buildings that meet special security needs. Along with the reconstruction of the control pavilions, the administrative building will also be completely renovated by improving the working conditions for its employees and providing additional amenities for border crossers.
