Abstract

Ove Arup & Partners, first became involved with these problems when they were commissioned by DG1 of the European Commission to conduct a study to identify short term measures to reduce bottlenecks in the Balkan Region. The writer was the project manager for that study and a subsequent study, the Central Europe Border Study, which identified the priority border crossings and the problems to be resolved atthem. He is now the project manager for Arup's project management and implementation support to the Phare Multi National programme for border post modernisation. In the course of these commissions he has visited more than 60 border posts in Central Europe and has collected data on about twice that number. This paper intends to describe the progress that has been made with border infrastructure in the past four years and to give the author's on the core problems at the borders.
