The border crossing points in Arad county are crowded on Wednesday, on the way out of the country, because thousands of Romanians are going abroad on a mini-vacation, and at Nadlac II the line of cars is over 4 kilometers long and there are waiting times of at least two hours for the border formalities to get into Hungary.
The representatives of the Arad Border Police declared for AGERPRES that, from the first hours of the day, many cars showed up on the way out of the country.
"In the context of the mini-vacation, the traffic is very intense at the border crossing points, on the way out of Romania. At Nadlac II, six control lanes are open for cars, but to open more we depend on the Hungarian authorities, who must allocate more police officers. We remind you that, at the border with Hungary, the border formalities are carried out jointly with the Hungarian authorities, so the number of lanes that can be opened is limited by the number of police offciers assigned by the neighboring state," said the spokesperson of the Arad Border Police, Andrei Dinca.
At Nadlac II, the waiting time for control is at least 120 minutes, and the line of cars formed on the pan-European motorway stretches on more than 4 kilometers. There is only one traffic lane left on the motorway in the direction of Hungary, because trucks park on the emergency lane, and cars park on the first lane.
At Nadlac I (DN7), three control lanes are open for cars, when leaving the country, but the waiting time amounts to at least 90 minutes, and at Turnu four lanes are open and the waiting time is also 90 minutes. At Varsand, two lanes are available and it takes 60 minutes to enter Hungary.
