New state-of-the-art border crossing facilities are open at three locations in southwestern Manitoba.

The new port of entry stations are in Goodlands, Coulter and Lyleton, Brandon-Souris MP Larry Maguire announced Tuesday.

The federal government says it has invested a total of $16.5 million into the facilities, which feature bi-level primary inspection line booths, garages and secure detention cells.

The Canada Border Services Agency has 16 border crossings in southern Manitoba, as well as a port of entry in Churchill.
