Nagyhódos (HU) – Velyka Palad (UA) Border crossing.

The plan was for this border crossing to open in 2017. EU funds were allocated to support the road/bridge building which is now all complete. All that is required are the shared passport control/custom buildings to be put on site. I am not sure what the delay is. This is an external Schengen border. When I returned to my car the Hungarian borderguard were there questioning why I was there. Checked my papers (UK driving licence and passport driving a Romanian hire car) and then let me go. Were not concerned about the photos I had taken. How did they know?
