Bulgaria, Greece Open Sixth Border Chekpoint

A sixth border checkpoint between Bulgaria and Greece opened to traffic on Monday, the Kardzhali district administration said.
Several hundred Bulgarian and Greek nationals crossed the border at Makaza-Nimfea on the first day of operation of the new border checkpoint, the Kardzhali district administration said.
The border crossing is open for passenger cars with up to eight seats without the driver’s and commercial vehicles weighing up to 3.5 tonnes. These restrictions, however,  are expected to be waived once the construction of a new road section in Bulgaria  - between the town of Dzhebel and the village of Podkova  - is completed. The new 27-kilometre (km) road section is expected to be launched later in the autumn. It will shorten by 15 km the road distance  between Kardzhali in Bulgaria and Komotini in Greece, which is currently 78 km.
The other five checkpoints on the Bulgarian-Greek border are Kulata-Promachonas, Kapitan Petko Voyvoda-Ormenio, Ilinden-Exochi, Zlatograd-Thermes, and Ivaylovgrad-Kyprinos.
