Moreover, apart from this, rehabilitation works are being carried out on the 28 km section of the Khornabuji-Samtatskaro highway in the territory of Dedoplistskaro municipality in the Kakheti region.
The road section has not been carried out for 30 years. The existing road was mostly gravel and damaged, and road transport was delayed, especially in rainy weather, which created a big problem for the population using the road.
Compared to the same period of the previous year, the Ministry of Infrastructure absorbed 95 million GEL more financial resources and increased the historically highest rate of the same period of the last year by 10%. It was difficult to reach the agricultural fields adjacent to the highway.
The project is implemented by the Department of Roads of the Ministry of Infrastructure with funding from the state budget; its cost is 20,739,345 GEL.
The works are planned to be completed in the summer of 2023.
