“On July 11, 2015, the Nadlac II (Romania) – Csanadpalota (Hungary) border crossing point was opened to international traffic at the connection of Romania’s A1 with Hungary’s M43 motorway; the control at the new border crossing point is performed jointly by the border authorities of the two states, under observance of Community regulations.
