Construction of a bridge connecting University Street and Bagebi settlement is underway. Mayor of the capital, Kakha Kaladze announced the construction of the bridge will last two years and will be completed by 2023.
“The road bridge connecting University Street and Bagebi settlement will be built next to the existing pedestrian bridge. The bridge will be about half a kilometer long and four-lane. As part of this project, two important junctions will be constructed on University Street and the Bagebi-Tskneti Road, as a result of which the traffic jams we have today on Tamarashvili Street, as well as from Tskneti to Chavchavadze, will be unloaded and traffic will be freer,” Kaladze said.
The mayor noted that this bridge will be one of the most distinctive, and will be adapted for everyone, both for vehicles, as well as for pedestrians and bicycles.
“There is no sidewalk on Bagebi Road, the road is narrow, it is impossible to move, it is impossible to pull over. All this will be settled, as well as Cholokashvili Street, which is in the worst condition. This street will be fully rehabilitated, including underground,” Kaladze said.
