East-West highway section opens in Georgia

A new 13-km road to bypass Khashuri was built in Georgia. It has become a part of the East-West highway (E60), the Georgian Ministry of Regional Development informed.

The Khashuri bypass road begins at the last section of Agara-Zemo Osiauri and connects to the existing road at a new junction in Surami. A 420-meter bridge with the highest pillars in the country was built on this section.

Prime Minister Giorgi Gakharia attended the opening ceremony. "Today, the road was opened and now those traveling along the East-West highway will not have to enter Khashuri. For the residents of Khashuri, this means safety in terms of  traffic jams and ecology,” he said.
