Chairman of Roads Department George Seturidze inspected construction works ongoing on second section of Kobuleti bypass road.
Construction of Kobuleti bypass road is an important project for the region and, in general, for the country’s economy, since local and transit traffic on the territory of Adjara will be facilitated, travel time and costs will be significantly reduced. Diversion of traffic from the Adjara coastline to the new road will promote ecological well-being of resorts and complete development of tourism in the region.
