VLADIKAVKAZ, July 5 (Itar-Tass) - A total of 1,500 vehicles are queuing up at the Verkhny Lars checkpoint on the Russian-Georgian border, sources from the customs department of the Republic of North Ossetia-Alania told Tass on Friday.
This is explained by the fact that transit vehicles from Armenia as well as Russian and Georgian nationals heading for holidays move in both directions, the sources said.
The reconstructed Verkhny Lars checkpoint has six lanes in each direction. In summer it began operating round-the-clock but still its staffers fail to cope with the car flow.
The North Ossetian emergencies ministry has arranged a post on the road for the case of emergencies, the sources said.
