It is noteworthy, that the problem raised in local residents due to construction of the road is eradicated on Lot II of Samtredia-Grigoleti, temporary cattle passes were arranged, and population will have possibility to use these temporary passes until completion of the project. “Unfortunately, Samtredia-Grigoleti is one of the most problematic projects. We are actively producing construction monitoring; contractor organizations were given appropriate warnings and references to the quality and schedule of construction works. Some sections of the road are under observation and, by the time the geological survey process is completed, we will be able to continue works. Unfortunately, this project was postponed several times; the plan considered for this section in the budget was not fulfilled this year; due to objective reasons, the delay will still be expected. We are dependent on road conditions, so-called settlements, and we will be able to continue works based on this process. Today, works are underway where it is possible. We will actively continue works in order to ensure the road of high quality, which is in compliance with international standards” – declared Mrs. Maya Tskitishvili.
