-9:00 AM waiting time was 1h, direction BG-GR
-around noon traffic flow gradually reverses
-13:30 PM waiting time was 20-30min both directions.

The majority is consisted of romanians and bulgarians. But there are also many moldavians and ukranians. ~20k cars a day use it during the weekend.




According to this report Makaza border checkpoint might overtake Kulata border checkpoint in terms of traffic among border checkpoints along BG/GR border, making it the busiest border checkpoint in the summer season.

Of course, more border crossings are needed but because of historical and now economic (Greek side reluctant) reasons, it's always a pain to open them.
Good example for failed border crossing because of Greece. The pics show the road from the Bulgarian side.
Google maps coordinates to the location 41.399026, 24.836765



The pics are from google earth

The Greeks are afraid of more crossings with Bulgaria. That's why it's been so difficult to open the ones present today.

listen carefully at 2.00 min. Also they does't allowed the crossing of makaza with trucks (probably to block the import, export of goods) Recently i heard that there are plans for building a weighing machine but only for trucks with restricted weight i think. Where is the EU now ? What happened with the free movement of capitals and goods ?

I want to point out something else too. Greek police authorities now will begin to require every truck going through their territory to must carry original vehicle registration document part one (the big one). Everyone who does not have it in their cabin will face tickets for up to 8,000 euro. This is a big problem for leased vehicles because they do not own the original document ... Nobody else in the EU have that kind of rule in their books...

We (Greeks) are not famous for the speed of infrastructure completion but there are some excuses from Greek side regarding the delays in completion of connections of the 2 new BG-GR border check points (Chepinksi - Exinos Xanthis from below pictures & Makaza - Nymfaia Komotinis).
The required road constructions are very complex and expensive for the Greek side as the check points are isolated from the rest of Greek road network and the terrain is very mountainous.
For Nymfaia - Komotini connection, a new road "in the middle of nowhere" with 5 tunnels is constructed with a total cost of ~100million euros.

I don't believe that there is any conspiracy against Bulgaria just the usual inability of Greek authorities. Delays are very common in much more important project for Greek economy.


Now regarding the prohibition of truck transit through the new Makaza checkpoint, before blaming Greek side it is very important to notice that construction of required truck weighting machine is a Bulgarian responsibility according to the agreement between the 2 countries done in 1998.
This is also applicable for the construction of check point facilities, which is placed in Bulgarian territory.

yes is truth and what you say, but that does not mean to stop the development of projects which primarily Greece and all of southern Europe.

- Tourism (Thasoss, Sithonia, the Ionian Islands, etc.)
- Transport cargo to the ports of Piraeus and Alexandroupulis

Isn't it compulsory to carry it for all type of vehicles not only trucks?

Isn't it forbidden to carry this document in your car in Bulgaria?

Well, historically it's about keeping the Bulgarian-speaking population in the north of Greece isolated from Bulgaria. Now, the economics are an added pressure to delays those openings.

1. I don't know about that. I think it is not mandatory for cars ... for example

2. It is not forbidden... but people do not carry it with themselves cause vehicle/police authorities do not require it ... at least while on the road. And the damn thing is like A4 size.

The deadline for the reconstruction of the checkpoint is 30.06. As you know the new section between the border and Generalovo is waiting for the reconstruction to finish.
However, this report says that there is a lot of work and the deadline seems unrealistic.
The API has announced during the visit of the minister that the A4 till the border should be completed in November 2014. I guess that's only the section Dimitrovgrad – Harmanli, isn't it?

Accordin to this article from API both lot 1(Chirpan-Dimitrovgrad) and lot 2(Dimitrovgrad-Harmanli) should be ready in November this year.

The article doesn't mention it but the contractor on lot 1 is negotiating a delay until March 2015. article
