Picula asked the Commission what are they planning with border traffic

Member of the European Parliament Tonino Picula sent a priority question to the European Commission about measures they are going to take to avoid crowds at border crossing points, that have emerged with beginning of the regulation controls on external borders.

"Picula warned that already on the first day of Schengen revision implementation, long-term waiting at all border crossings between Croatia and Slovenia were reported due to the scarcity of existing technology."

"On the second day, an agreement was reached on the temporary derogation from the application of the new Regulation within the EU (for border crossings to Slovenia and Hungary) and the return to the old control system. But the long-term waiting at border crossings continued because a different system of control between Member States is being used", said Picula in his question.

He therefore asked the Commission whether they plan additional investment in technical, technological, administrative and human resource aspects of border controls to avoid any unnecessary waiting.
