On 22nd of May AS Oma Ehitaja and AS Riigi Kinnisvara signed a general contract for the reconstruction works of Narva Border Crossing Point. The border crossing between Narva and Ivangoord should be more convenient and faster once the renovating is done because the throughput of the border crossing point will increase by half. The Narva-1 Crossing Point consists of three terminals: cars and buses, pedestrian and truck terminal. The renovated crossing point will have two lanes for buses, two lanes for cars and four lanes for pedestrians. The existing terminal buildings, built in the first half of the 1990s, have been outdated. Therefore the old terminal will be demolished and the new 1 468 square meters pedestrian terminal will be built on its place.
The construction works of the Narva-1 Crossing Point are complicated because of the location in the city center. Some facilities are under the protection of cultural heritage and extension works can be done only within the limits of the existing border crossing point.
The Narva Border Crossing Point was designed by AS Amhold, site preparation works will start immediately and will be completed in the beginning of next year.
