In the following weeks, EULEX will start the winterization of its premises at Gates 1 and 31 in Northern Kosovo. The facilities will be improved there in order to ease the conditions of EULEX staff. Convoys will bring to the gates containers and equipment, and work will be done on the ground. The objective of the works is to improve the overall very poor conditions of EULEX staff at the gates before the onset of the winter months. It will not correspond to any increased customs and border police activity at the gates.
As a result, additional EULEX traffic to both gates will be experienced during the coming weeks. It is expected that the works will be completed before the end of September.
