ArmInfo. Drivers in Georgia promise to block the road of interstate significance if the access road from Ninotsminda municipality to the border of Armenia is not repaired.
According to Georgia online, the access road from the municipality of Ninotsminda to the border of Armenia is in poor condition. The 22 km section is almost completely broken. Because of this, instead of half an hour, drivers spend more than two hours to drive from Ninotsminda to the border of Armenia. "On May 15, 2018, the Department of Highways of the Ministry of Infrastructure announced a 15 million tender. The contract with the winning company Sacmilsadenmsheni was signed on July 6, 2018. 9 months had passed since the start of work, and the road was in the same condition as before the tender." Sakmilsadenmsheni "performs work together with the company contractor" Javahavtogaz "," - says the source.
At the same time, the source notes that according to the information of the Rustavi-2 television company, the director of the Javakhavtogaz company is the business partner of the "Georgian Dream" party MP Henzel Mkoyan. "The opposition says that the conditions are also laid out for him, and no other company can compete with him. The MP confirmed this cooperation, but categorically denied that he is connected with the same business. According to the drivers, if there is no timely and proper response , do not exclude the blocked highway of international importance, and the holding of protests, " said in the message of the site.
To note, Ninotsminda is the center of the Ninotsminda municipality in Javakheti, Samtskhe-Javakheti province, where a large number of Armenians live.
