The LCS is located at Allay, Pasakha. It has an area of 3.86 acres. LCS will be further connected from India side as well (through ongoing Indian SASEC Road Project- this road project is already in construction phase).
The objective of developing LCS at Allay is to divert Pasakha bound Traffic (both entry and exit), directly towards Pasakha Industrial Area, through LCS, without having to detour Phuentsholing, thus reducing the heavy traffic in Phuentsholing.
Once, built and completed, vehicles plying from India to Pasakha Industrial area and vice versa will ply through Allay Land Custom Station. In future, all the formalities related to custom clearance and other allied activities will be conducted at LCS.
FUNCTION AND OBJECTIVES
Allay Land Customs Station is an inland intermodal terminal directly connected by road and operating as a centre for the transshipment cargo to inland destinations.
- To ease out traffic congestion at Phuentsholing town.
- Faster and smoother custom clearance
