North Cyprus News - Tolga AtakanMinister of Transportation and Communication Tolga Atakan, said via his Twitter account, that the works to construct a third traffic lane at the Metehan border crossing is expected to be completed by the end of this week.

Atakan said that if the work continues as scheduled, there will be a third lane for vehicles which want to cross over to the TRNC. He also said that they will carry out work in order to avoid a traffic bottleneck during the car insurance procedure.

For months now, Greek Cypriots have been pouring in across the border, mainly via Metehan, taking advantage of the weakened lira against the euro and buying fuel, clothing, food and medicines which are much cheaper than in the south.
