The consortium of ‘MAQRO Construction’ and ‘Gocay Insaat Taahhut ve Ticart’ is to build a new 4-lane expressway on the 7.66 km long section of the Sagarejo bypass road. The agreement was signed by the General Director of MAQRO Group, Murat Avci, and the Deputy Head of the Roads Department of Georgia, Salome Tsurtsumia.
Construction of the Sagarejo bypass road covers a distance of 27,840-35,800 km on the Tbilisi-Bakurtsikhe-Lagodekhi international road. The project plans to build a 7660-meter 4-lane highway and a 20,667-meter secondary road with all the necessary infrastructure, be it bridges, ramps or soil and asphalt-concrete roads of local importance.
“It is very important and a great responsibility for our company to participate in this project. It is a road of international importance and modern standards, which is very important for Kakheti, being one of the regions with the greatest interest in tourism. The construction of a new road will significantly improve traffic safety and reduce travel time. In addition, the project will support the development of agriculture and tourism in the Kakheti region and increase the competitiveness of transit corridors through Georgia. That is why we are pleased that we will contribute to the development of this region,” Avci said.
The budget of the Sagarejo bypass road project is 149.9 million GEL. The construction process will be completed in 24 months.
