M-4 Yerevan - Sevan-Ijevan-Azerbaijan Border, rehabilitation
Road Project - The proposed highway starts from Yerevan, passes through Dilijan and Ijevan and is adjacent to the highway leading to Bagratashen checkpoint, which corresponds to the M-4 Yerevan - Sevan-Ijevan-Azerbaijan border road, km 10 + 300 to km 143 + 200 section in the road network of the Republic of Armenia.
The project focuses on the upgrade of the M4 road section from km 10.3 to km 143.2.
The initial section of the highway, 62.9 km long, has four lane with a cover in satisfactory condition, but due to high traffic intensity (more than 20,000 vehicle / day) is subject to rapid decay. In the rest of the 70 km long section the cover is in poor condition- there are many holes and slope collapses of ground road, drainage is not ensured in some sections, a large number of security elements are missing. It was last rehabilitated in 2001-2002. In 2016-2017 it is planned to reconstruct Dilijan tunnel, 2.4 kilometers long.
The initial cost of rehabilitation of the highway is 106.3 million EUR.
