On many websites (e.g. Fark.com), it's become a bit of a cliché to say "you know who else wanted (insert vague Nazi-era reference here)". It is an evolution of "Godwin's law", that is, as the length of a thread approaches infinity, the probability of something being compared to Hitler inevitably approaches one.

Comapere it with this:

See:

for an aerial image of this crossing. The actual border is by the mowed strip and the barracks buildings are in Germany.

Looks like the Znojmo border hasn't changed at all since I went through it in July 2002.

Btw: when I crossed this border, they didn't want to see our passports, we could just drive on. They must have thought that we were checked when entering Poland, so that it would be ok.

There is projected extension to 2x2 and new bypass of Znojmo, so now it's just a temporary layout of border crossing.

Well, I've had the same with the Slovak-Polish border and the Polish-German border, would that be the same?

Edit: at the Polish-German border I was talking about (Jedrzychowice), the custom agents scanned every German and Polish passport, which was quite time consuming. On the other side, towards Poland, there were exceptionally long traffic jams for a EU border.

It looks confusing though. Would be better to sort it out differently.

What is that under construction on either side of that checkpoint? It looks like a huge truck/lorry inspection/rest area and from the Google aerial images, a similar one is being built on the eastbound side (for trucks/lorries entering Poland). Are those just big truck stops being built as part of converting that (former) checkpoint into a pair of service plazas?

I know only that Ludwigsdorf(D/PL) and Boguszowice(PL/CZ) will be rebuilt into rest areas, but this one probably too

As far as I know, most former Dutch-German border stations have been transformed into rest areas. Before the Euro, there used to be lots of exchange places over there. Nowadays they are gone, of course. Since Poland won't have the Euro until 2011 (I'm not sure, is there an exact date?), those border stations can still serve as an Euro-Zloty exchange.

There is no stated date for Euro introduction in Poland, but it is no problem, as even now in border petrol stations (PL/D) you can pay both in zlotys and euros
