More than 900 trucks are waiting for clearance before the border crossing with Belarus in Bobrowniki, according to the data of the Podlasie branch of the National Tax Administration. According to information from Sunday morning, truck drivers had to wait in line for 38 hours.

Bobrowniki – waiting time

On Saturday evening it was 41 hours. According to KAS, 286 trucks leaving for Belarus were cleared during the 12-hour night shift.

Bobrowniki is currently the only border crossing in Podlaskie with Belarus that supports road freight traffic. For over two weeks – due to the crisis on the border – the neighboring crossing in Kuźnica has been closed.

Since then, there is still a long line of trucks there; just after the crossing in Kuźnica was closed, one had to wait nearly three days for the check-in and border crossing in front of Bobrowniki. The border services point out that usually on weekends, the queues of trucks in Bobrowniki – but also in Kuźnica, when this crossing is in operation – extend significantly.

Buffer zones

As the cableway is approx. 20 km long, a buffer zone was reintroduced on Friday afternoon to improve traffic on the road to the border crossing. The zone begins in front of Waliłami Station.

Buffer zones are created on the access roads to Podlasie crossings with Belarus, when the queue begins to get longer and hinders the traffic of cars. Then it is divided and organized by KAS, the Border Guard and the police. When the next vehicles from the first part of the queue are cleared, the cars from the second part are gradually admitted to it.

The road border crossing in Kuźnica, handling passenger and goods traffic, was closed by the Polish side on November 9 – until further notice – due to attempts by large groups of migrants to cross the border illegally in the vicinity of this crossing.
