Delegation of the Ministry of Transport of Azerbaijan is going to visit Georgia in the near future. They are going to consider the completion of the Georgian section of the Baku-Tbilisi-Kars railway, the Vestnik Kavkaza reported.


According to Azerbaijani Minister of Transport Ziya Mammadov, the construction of the railway goes according to the plan. According to him, the Azerbaijani delegation intends to visit Georgia and address issues relating to the construction on-site.

Under the project, the construction of the railway will be completed this year.

In late last year, the new Georgian authorities expressed serious concerns about the project, which was called corruption in the Georgian media, the Armenia Today recalls.

As we know, the project, scheduled for completion in 2013, will have to provide transportation from 10 to 25 million tons of cargo a year. It implies the construction of 98-kilometer railway from the Turkish town of Kars to the Georgian town of Akhalkalaki. Most of the road (68 km) passes through the Turkish side, other 30 km - through Georgia. At the same time, $ 202 million has been spent for the construction of the Turkish section, while the Georgian section has taken $ 220 million.
