|Rehabilitation and improvement of the Vanadzor - Alaverdi - Georgian border interstate road (M6)|
Road Project - The M6 highway is considered as one of the most strategic roads for internal and external trade between Armenia and Georgia.
The road from Vanadzor to the Georgian border, passing through Alaverdi, is situated along the valley of the Debed river.
Significant transit traffic from and to Armenia is served by the M6 Vanadzor-Alaverdi-Georgian border interstate road.
|Demand estimation from IDEA II-EaP transport model year 2030|
|The main objective of the Project is to rehabilitate and reconstruct the M6 Vanadzor-Alaverdi-Georgia border interstate road between Vanadzor in central Armenia and Bagratashen at the North eastern border between Armenia and Georgia, whose current conditions result in the increase of the transport cost for the road users, specifically freight transport. Its tortuous alignment, constrained by the Debed river itself and the railway line directed to Georgia, is unsafe and insufficient for long-term transit traffic. The total length of the road section is 90,07 km. The road has 2 lanes. Along the existing road there are 12 bridges and culverts and 3 tunnels that show evident and serious signs of deterioration and will need repair or reconstruction. The project also includes a road safety allocation aimed at removing "black spots" located on the road network throughout Armenia.|
