Zoom in and you'll see the Norwegian coat of arms, along with the Norwegian spelling "Toll". ("Tull" is Swedish.)

That's all I know. I've never transported anything here so I've never really been in any business with the customs of either state, just driven by.
Thanks buddy - now I know for next time...

So this road is in Bulgaria, right?
Where are these people going? Is there another road on the other side of the border?

Theyre not going anywhere. They went to see for themselves what you see on the pictures.

Why did Bulgaria invested in a road which goes nowhere? And they also put signs and road lines...

Maybe because there has been an agreement for opening this crossing since 1995?

For real?

There is a dirt road on the Greek side. It doesn't look like it's going to be paved though...

It is not the only dead-end main road, as I found this:

https://maps.google.com/?ll=41.26750...01929&t=h&z=16

Also that one seems to be a main road (5) ending nowhere except for a local road (509):

https://maps.google.com/?ll=41.30346...02411&t=m&z=19

That one crossing was just opened last week. Google hasn't updated it. The main road section will go to the border crossing in a couple of months reducing the distance.

It's always with great difficulty and reluctance that Greece opens these crossings for various social and economic reasons.

Since Bulgaria is not a Schengen-country, this all seems illegal crossings to me.

I believe the actual border stone is somewhere on the hill so they're not really crossing and this is an official delegation. But yes, it's not allowed to cross anywhere but at the border crossings. Violators are swiftly intercepted.

Maybe you can shed some light on the matter?
