Karen Karapetyan Prime Minister chaired a regular meeting of the North-South Road Corridor and Sustainable Urban Development Investment Programs Governing Council.
The Council was presented the findings of a feasibility study carried out into the construction of the Gyumri bypass road and Gyumri-Bavra highway sections. 3 options regarding the aforementioned road sections were discussed based on various considerations, including attractiveness and efficiency, from which the final programs must be selected.
The speakers noted that the objective is to have fast and safe roads, move traffic away from the center of Gyumri and connect the town with the North-South Highway by means of a roundabout road. Reference was also made to the 60km-long Sisian-Kajaran road project based on three options.
The Council discussed and approved the proposed changes to the composition of the evaluating commission. The meeting also discussed a number of other issues related to the North-South Road Corridor project.
