Description

The East-West Highway Improvement Project will contribute to the economic development and post-war rehabilitation of Georgia by strengthening the transportation capacity with the construction and repair of roads and bridges between Zestafoni and Samtredia on the East-West Highway. Traversing the country, the highway is a part of the East-West Corridor, an important part of the international transportation network between the Black and Caspian Seas as well as Europe and Asia.
