London, 27 May 2021:
The Land Ports Operation Centre affiliated to the Libyan Ministry of Transport announced last week the start of improvements and developments at the Ras Ajdir Libyan-Tunisian border crossing.
The Centre said this comes within the framework of the government’s policy to improve services at land border crossings as these are the first façade of the country for visitors.
It revealed that there are several improvement projects under implementation and others under consideration for the border crossing.
Initially, the Centre announced the installation of waiting shelters and seats as well as outdoor play areas for children.
It must be noted that the border crossing area has had a history of long queues and waiting hours and is bereft of any conveniences or services.
It will also be recalled that the Libyan and Tunisian governments have recently agreed to speed up the processing of travellers and goods crossing the land border.
