This sign is probably the only sign with Terespol on it that doens't have two ovals next to it. Nice site btw. Even without speaking Polish you can find the pics

It's because the text in white box says border crossing(przejście graniczne) and Tersespol here is just a small village.

Let me make it clear:

All this silly names of small towns in the middle of nowhere with two ovals are the names of border crossings, not cities.

Interesting. I suppose the road was left rotting b/c of a more straight route of the A115?

I think so. Someone posted some aerial pics of this over here some time ago. It's quite close to the current A115, AFAIK.

-edit- Must be somewhere over here

Well...
The GDR-government build the new route of the A115 in 1969, because the old passed West-Berlin-territory after the checkpoint...

Another ex-DDR/West Berlin crossing Stolpe/Heiligesee (A111), opened to trafic 1.1.1989.

Stolpe, DDR part. Now motrway is passing by, then it was closed.


In second turn i drove through bridge over motorway. Now it is a rest area with...


...hotel...


...and filling station.






On another bridge, driving back to motorway.


Deutsche Teilung 1945-1990. Behind this silver car, there's a yellow sign "Berlin".


Entering Berlin.


Heiligensee, second part, these were WB-checkpoints.

On German holidays, truck traffic is not allowed, so the border is virtually closed for trucks entering Germany from neighboring countries (except perishable goods). The result is that the border crossing parking is quickly full, and trucks start to line up on the shoulder. In the Netherlands, this line can reach 16 kilometers (10 miles) on the A1 motorway. All parking areas are filled to capacity, up to 80 kilometers from the border and trucks start to line up on the shoulder there too.

I made a video of this situation about 17 months ago, May 2007. We were there around noon, and the line was about 4 kilometers long, but it reached 16 kilometers that evening.

We have that problem every Sunday. They fill up every parking and after 10 p.m start driving - one after another.

Nice pictures of the former German border. I have visited Berlin in 1987 by bus so we used the Transit-Autobahn through East-Germany. I remember the strict checks at the border, altough the East-German police wre quite relaxed (we were warned for there bad behaviour, but nothing at all). We could even make a joke with one of them. We used the Dreilinden check and the Helmstedt bordercrossing. It was a very interesting experience.

In 2003 I have been in Thüringen and visited Mödlareuth. A must-see for borderjunkies, since that village was seperated by the border and they left most of the border (towers, fences, etc.) for touristic purposes.

According to wikipedia Mödlareuth still has 50 inhabitants. It's not a very nice reminder for the people that have been 'imprisoned' by that border. However, it would be interesting to got there one day.

This one is even better. The new border crossing between Slovenia and Hungary (Pince/Tornyiszentmiklós). Viva (Las) Schengen!

It clearly shows that there is a border, though it can be quite sad what's happening over there.
