Roads rehabilitation works are being actively carried out by Roads Department in Marneuli Municipality.

The length of the mentioned road is about 15 km and it connects with the shortest route Tbilisi (Ponichala) -Marneuli-Guguti and Tbilisi-Red Bridge international roads. It is also the shortest route between the city of Rustavi and the city of Marneuli, which is actively used by the population of densely populated villages along the road and various enterprises.
The existing road was damaged. Asphalt-concrete pavement almost did not exist and in rainy weather, some sections were practically impassable

The project also envisages works related to arrangement of junctions to local roads, entrances to residential yards, enclosed bus stops, bus shelters, road signs, marking of the carriageway, metal guardrails and plastic directional sign posts.
The project is funded with GEL 12.6 million from the state budget. Road rehabilitation works will be completed in 2022.
