We investigate the effect of the boundary roughness scattering on the conductance of a disordered tunnel-coupled quantum wire in the presence of a magnetic field. It is shown that the average distance between the neighboring discontinuities of the boundary profile plays an important role in the transport properties of the system and the manifestation of the localization-delocalization effect. Present studies point out a new effect consisting in the decrease of the conductance with the increase of the disorder correlation length.
