According to deputy head of the Main Operation and Road Repair Department of the Azerbaijani State Agency of Automobile Roads Hidayat Rustamov’s interview with REAL TV Trend, the construction process of 11.5 km road tunnel that stretches from Toghanaly village in Azerbaijan’s Goygol towards Kalbajar district is undergoing rapidly.
Rustamov continued: “The road is being laid through steep rocks, and its 500-meter section has been already built. The work is carried out in three shifts. The road should be commissioned in 2025. A Turkish company was invited to build a tunnel on the road with a total length of 80.7 kilometers.”
“After the tunnel is built, construction of a 26-kilometer road from Kalbajar [city] to Istisu [village], and further from Kalbajar to Lachin, will begin. The road will stretch to the airport, which will be built in Lachin district,” he added.
