800 km of roads have been rebuilt across Georgia in 2019, up almost 4-fold YoY, said Head of the Roads Department Irakli Karseladze.
He added that 200 projects had been carried out in 2019, including the construction and reconstruction of 52 bridges in total.
He noted that reconstruction work was underway on tourist routes.
Among various tourist routes, work is being carried out on the road to the Okatse Canyon, located in the Khoni Municipality of the Imereti region. Also, the reconstruction of the road to the Georgia’s 6th century David Gareji monastery complex is being carried out.
Work is underway on the road towards Kakheti in east Georgia, particularly the 15.5-km road of Akhmeta-Telavi-Bakurtsikhe, which bypasses the town of Gurjaani and will decrease traffic in the region.
Reconstruction is carried out on roads, which have never been paved with asphalt, including the 28-km Tianeti-Akhmeta and 21-km Khornabuji-Erisimedi roads. (Agenda/Business World Magazine)
