PPA wants 2.5 meter fence along Estonian-Russian border ({{commentsTotal}})

The Police and Border Guard Board (PPA) wants to build a 2.5-meter-high fence on around 100 kilometers of the Estonian-Russian border.

The fence would not cover the entire border between the two nations as the Narva River and Lake Peipus are also on the border, and no fence will be constructed on marshlands, which will only have border posts.

The project would cost 71 million euros and construction is planned to begin in 2018, Postimees reported.

The plan is to build a fence among two thirds of the land border between the two countries, with a strip of sand next to the fence, then security cameras and finally border posts and a smaller fence to keep small animals from setting off sensors.
