South-East Finland – Russia CBC Programme allocates ENI CBC funding in total ca 17,6 MEUR to improvement of four land border-crossing points during 2014-2020 period. Points are located in Vaalimaa, Vainikkala, Imatra and Parikkala. The actual works are for example improvement of area lights, surveillance systems, x-ray scanners, facilities for passengers and border authorities and in Parikkala the road infra.
These large infrastructure projects, or shortly LIPs, were selected already at the programming phase. They are considered important, both in Finnish and Russian side, for fluent and safe passenger and cargo traffic and for supporting regional development in terms of increased tourism and businesses.
All four BCP LIPs signed grant contract with the Managing Authority this spring. We invited project partners and regional stakeholders for a one day bus-tour to get a good starting point to follow the development. Have a look on photos and post in English on our Facebook and Finnish tweets on our Twitter account. Thanks for our guests and hosts for warm welcomes and very informative day.
