Constructing the fast lanes on main road 70 at the Niirala border station
Funded by Euregio Karelia Neighbourhood Programme 2001-2006
Objective of the project
The investment project was intended to implement the construction of the fast lanes and lane signage for both the arriving (three lanes) and departing (two lanes) lanes for both heavy and light traffic. In addition, the existing road structures were to be reinforced throughout the traffic area.
• The construction of the fast lanes at the Niirala border station
The project's road structures were completed as planned. The project completed the 'Constructing the fast lanes on main road 70 at the Niirala border station' project's arriving and departing lane construction (primarily 2 lanes for both directions) as well as the load-bearing surface, surfacing, road markings, fixed traffic control and the finishing work on the two lanes built by the border station's X-ray area and the additional departing traffic lane near the border. The planned road structure lane arrangements were finished upon the project's completion. The new fast lanes improved the flow of traffic, sped up the inspection time at the border, and improved the occupational safety of the staff as well as increased their operational capacity. The traffic lanes built were fully operational when the telemetric traffic control system was completed in the 'Niirala border station's telemetric traffic control system on main road 70' project during 2007.
