Eliava Market May Be Removed Through Legislative Amendments

The Mayor of Tbilisi Kakha Kaladze has made an announcement regarding the government’s plans to restrict the control mechanism on the placement and even prohibit the sales of used spars, scarp iron, inflammable substances, used tires and similar products in residential zones of Tbilisi through legislative amendments.  

Eliava Market is one of the major zones where all the above mentioned materials are available. Therefore, the government may remove it and allocate special areas for similar trade activities out of residential areas.

Kaladze stated that the decision was made in order to improve the ecology of the capital city and decrease the level of pollution, which is a matter of "paramount importance." He also spoke about the steps that have already been made for amelioration of the situation and future plans in this respect.
