Project Description

Corridor X runs from Salzburg, Austria to Thessaloniki, Greece, through most of the Western Balkans. The rail route in North Macedonia is 215 km long and operational, with several sections already renovated. In February 2015, the Transport Minister and his Serbian counterpart agreed to locate a joint border station in Tabanovce on Macedonian soil and facilitate border crossing procedures.

The WBIF grant finances the feasibility study, detailed design and tender documentation for an office building housing both countries’ officials working at the border station (customs, police, and inspection).

Benefits of the project include faster border crossing and reduced travel time for passenger and freight traffic along a major European Corridor, as well as improved working conditions for official border staff.
