Upper Lars border crossing reopens for passenger cars

YEREVAN, January 12. /ARKA/. The Upper Lars border crossing on Georgia’s border with Russia was reopened for passenger cars at 5 pm local time, Armenian ministry of emergencies said reminding that the road had been earlier closed to all types of vehicles due to an avalanche. 

Upper Lars border crossing is the only overland route connecting Armenia with Russia. In winter, it is often closed because of the threat of avalanches. In spring and autumn the road is shut down by the threat of mudslides.

The Vardenyats mountain pass in Armenia’s Gegharkunik region was also reopened for traffic at 5:30 pm today, the emergency ministry said, warning, however, that this road is icy on some sections. It said also that all the roads across the country were open to traffic. -0-
