After a stuttering start on Wednesday, the Frontier webcam positioned at the border between Gibraltar and Spain has this afternoon gone live and is freely available to view online at www.frontierqueue.gi.
Following the visit of Deputy CM Dr Joseph Garcia to Strasbourg a couple of weeks ago
for a series of meetings, the Gibraltar Government took the decision to set up a video live stream of the frontier queue online 24 hours a day every day to allow people who want to go to Spain to monitor the state of the queue and also to gather further evidence of the reported lengthy delays.
The website offers users two views of the border area: one shows the loop by the frontier fence
, and the other shows Winston Churchill Avenue outside the old air terminal
The cameras are positioned so as to highlight the length of the queues while avoiding filming Spanish police and Guardia Civil officers at work.
