The automobile checkpoint "Kyakhta" on the border with Mongolia will open after reconstruction on September 10. The reconstruction took nine years.

According to INTERFAX - FAR EAST, the order to open was approved by the Ministry of Transport of Russia. Tomorrow it will start working as usual. Reconstruction began in 2013 under the international cooperation and export national project and the international trade logistics federal project. About 602 million rubles were allocated from the budget.

After the modernization, separate terminals for cars, buses and trucks will appear at the checkpoint. It was also equipped with modular disinfection units for cars. The capacity of Kyakhta will increase to three thousand people and one thousand cars per day - this is twice as much as before.

As noted in the regional Ministry of Transport, earlier, with a capacity of 1,5 thousand people, about 2,7 thousand people passed through the border per day. Cars with the declared norm of 500 units passed by 200-250 more.
