Italian police often patrol with the Austrian police in Innsbruck. Police officers from all over Europe helped out at the Tour de France. During the Germany Euro Cup, Germany temporarily cancelled Schengen, and German police officers were even checking vehicles at the port of Dover. French police have their own office, custody area and passport control facilities at the port of Dover anyway...

Sometimes I wonder if the EU will end up like the US. Interstate highways are similar. Crossing from Germany to Poland was like crossing from one federal state to another.

British police assist local police forces whenever England, or English clubs, are playing abroad. They're mainly there to spot troublemakers, or people with banning orders, but let the local police make the actual arrest if any are found.

I may be wrong but its the same for Wales & Scotland. It certainly is true for some Welsh & Scottish clubs.

When I've been to Germany to watch my club (Sunderland) play (admittedly not many times) the Redcaps stationed nearby are always in attendance and help the local police force police our support.

Today I saw a Hugarian police car parked near a supermarket in Arad, Romania. It's not the first time I see them in Arad.

At almost ever motorway border crossing between the Netherlands and Germany you see a German police car on the Dutch side of the border. I've been checked by French customs in Germany quite often at Saarbrücken, a few miles from the actual border... Just outside a German police station.

Arad is not really a few miles from the border, it's a little further, around 25km from the first border crossing

They have a very good colaboration with the Romanian police and they often do together some police controls. I see them in Arad every 2 months or so. Maybe they come even often and I don't see them all the time.

I think they are building a tunnel under Gibraltar Airport to make crossing from/to La Línea easier. By the way, I am not sure if it will be a full new border crossing or if it will just use present crossing facilities. Anyone has more information?

Don't mention Gibraltar! Mentioning Gibraltar around here has consequences these days.

As far as I know, the tunnel will go under the airport and emerge at the site of the present border crossing. I could be wrong, but I think it's likely that the tunnel will come out near the present "commercial gate" and then use the existing roadway under the new terminal building.

Well, no mention of the dispute, there should be no problem. Anyways, you already know my position about Gibraltar, and I won't come up again in order not to get banned.

Divided cities always remind me of former Berlin or current Nicosia. It's depressive.

Is that necessary? The airport has very few flights and the level crossing is closed only a couple of times per day...

I am wondering why in those days such towns were built at a border so that the citiy would be devided immidiately.

The intention is (as part of the Cordoba Agreements) that the airport will become something similar to Geneva or Basel/Mulhouse in terms of being a bi-national airport.

For instance - let's say that there's a flight from Gibraltar to San Sebastian. Travellers from Spain will be able to enter the airport from La Linea and fly to San Sebastian without crossing the Gibraltar frontier - the airport may be physically on Gibraltarian territory, but like the French sector in Geneva, they would remain (for customs/police purposes) on Spanish territory. Travellers from Gibraltar would have to clear Spanish controls before taking such a flight - as I recall, the plan is that the Spanish controls will be physically located on Spanish territory within the terminal building.

The same applies in reverse - a flight from San Sebastian landing in Gibraltar would offer two possibilities - either to exit to La Linea without frontier controls, or to go to Gibraltar and pass through Spanish exit controls and Gibraltar entry controls.

So - the long term aim of the Cordoba Agreement is for Gibraltar Airport to become an airport for that entire region. There's a fairly big catchment area that can be covered there, and it may also open up the Costa de la Luz for development too. The predicted (based on the Cordoba Agreement) increase in flights would necessitate some solution to the closure of the runway.

Unfortunately, the demand expected hasn't materialised. The Spanish commercial operators just don't seem interested in Gibraltar as an airport - Iberia cancelled their flight to Madrid quite quickly, and UK airlines haven't bothered to do much with it (although it's a perfectly viable alternative to Malaga).

http://osm.org/go/b6UeTgEO shows the projected route quite well. As you can see - the most sensible idea would be to build a new joint Gibraltar/Spanish border crossing next to the sea - north of the roundabout. The old one would remain for pedestrian traffic, the entire empty area to the east of the current Spanish border crossing could be used and everyone would be happy. It would also allow much more lanes to be opened - by my estimate, there could easily be an 6-8 lane facility there for exit from Gibraltar.
