Some news about the bridge on the Oyapock River between France and Brazil heard tonight on France24. The Brazilians have FINALLY started work on the access road to the bridge on their side of the border in the beginning of August. The construction of the access road and the Brazilian border station is scheduled to take 3 months. So the bridge should be inaugurated soon now.

How much time can it take between the two nearest cities in the border?

Is it stimated to increase freight traffic or similar?

Btw, is it easy to import/export freight or are too many taxes and papers to write there?

On French side the use of it in that border is very small, but exists.

On Spanish side, it is an official language at all. It is not the area where it is more spoken, but it is official.

Like if you see something in Gaelic at Dublin. Not spoken but first official language there!!


PS. You can find "differences" between Basque language and any other one. All European languages and a lot of western Asia languages come from the same "family". So if you start studying them you will find some common points that will help you learning, even if you are a Norwegian speaker and are studyin Greek or upside down.

But Basque is absolutely different in that case.

Is it a newly opened crossing, or they just do these shows many times during the year?

Saint-Georges-de-l'Oyapock (France) and Oiapoque (Brazil) will be only 10 minutes from each other by car. Of course Saint-Georges-de-l'Oyapock has only 4,129 inhabitants (in 2009), and Oiapoque has only 20,426 inhabitants (in 2010).

Cayenne (116,000 inhabitants in its metro area in 2009) and Macapá (508,000 inhabitants in its metro area in 2010) are the two closest cities. Cayenne is 203 km from the bridge on the border, by a fully asphalted road with no potholes. Macapá is 575 km from the bridge by a non-fully asphalted road (several sections remain mere dirt trails, muddy during the rainy season). The road from the bridge to Macapá will be fully asphalted in the end of 2013 if the Brazilians are on time. There may be some potholes on the Brazilian side of the border though, because I don't know how often they repair the road.

Brazilian merchandises need to conform to EU regulations if they want to cross the border, so there won't be much freight in the beginning (many bridges on the road from the border to Cayenne could not carry large trucks anyway... they will be upgraded in the coming years to carry large trucks). So in the beginning there won't be much freight going through, but in time, with the improvements in the road, and the adaptation to EU regulations by Brazilian exporters, freight will probably increase.

This is the road between Cayenne and Saint-Georges-de-l'Oyapock :





And that's the sections of the road between Macapá and Oiapoque which are still dirt trails :

I read about the Pakistan / India border but I think it is not a "border crossing".
