An agreement for a reconstruction project at the Narva-Ivangorod border checkpoint was signed yesterday. Construction will begin next year, with a late-2014 completion deadline.

Preparation for the project, which aims to improve the capacity of the busiest Estonian-Russian international border point, has already been under way for two and a half years. Pedestrian and vehicle crossing points on both the Estonian and Russian sides will be rebuilt, the ministry said in a press release today.

"This project will increase the border point's capacity by half, which is a big step forward from the standpoint of the development of the region and the entire Estonian economy," said Regional Affairs Minister Siim Kiisler.

The 8.2-million-euro project will receive the majority of its financing from the European Neighborhood and Partnership Instrument.
