Armenia’s president visits bypass road construction site in Tavush
YEREVAN, April 7. /ARKA/. Armenia’s president Serzh Sargsyan visited the construction site of Vazashen-Paravakar bypass road in Vavush Marz of Armenia.
The new road is to solve security problems. The old highway is seen from the enemy’s side and, hence, is dangerous, whereas the new bypass road is completely safe, head of project implementation at Armenia’s ministry of transport Alexander Bakhtamyan told reporters.
The total length of the road is 3,188 kilometers. Road bed and drainage have been already laid and a 2.9-kilometer section of the protective wall has been built. Limited number of trips on the road may be possible already in mid April.
The construction costs 519.8 million drams and is expected to finish at the end of June.
The president paid floral tribute to the kach-qar (cross stone) monument to liberators. Minister of defense Seyran Ohanyan handed awards to families of soldiers who fell in battle. –0--
