The two sections of the second stage of the project – the southern section of approximately 100 kilometers in length and the northern section of approximately 70 kilometers in length – will be constructed by the joint venture companies Kauno tiltai and Alkesta. The concert and fence will be installed by Brosta in the approximately 100-kilometer-long south-east section, and the EPSO-G group company Tetas will install the fence in the eastern approximately 100-kilometer section. In early December, these companies signed contracts with EPSO-G, the company implementing the project.

The installation of the concert prism in the first stage sections of the physical barrier will be completed in the coming days. Tetas, a subsidiary of the EPSO-G group, currently has more than 200 staff mobilized at the border. In the most vulnerable places near the border with Belarus, they were left with about 10 kilometers of concert prism. Segments of the fence are currently being built next to it, and the entire physical barrier in the most vulnerable stretches of about 100 kilometers is planned to be installed by the end of April 2022.

More than 140 kilometers of concert prism have already been laid in the most important sections of the border with Belarus. This figure includes a concertina built under the EPSO-G project, as well as barriers previously built by the military and firefighters.

When installing a physical barrier near the state border with Belarus, a concert pyramid of 5 or 6 spirals is first built, and fence segments are installed next to the concert side on the Lithuanian side. Fence segments manufactured in accordance with the requirements of the SBGS, which are resistant to adverse weather conditions and the effects of soil, are attached to the recessed poles. A concertina spiral is attached to the top of the fence, and the total height of the fence with the spiral is 4 meters.
