ADB to fund Construction of Kharagauli – Chumateleti Road with 80 mln USD

The Asian Development Bank (ADB) today approved a $80 million loan to rehabilitate a secondary road in central Georgia.

The Secondary Road Improvement Project — which will improve a 50 kilometer stretch of road from Dzirula to Chumateleti via Kharagauli and other short access roads to local communities — will increase the mobility of and accessibility for local residents and tourists visiting the area, and increasing economic activity in the region. The road will provide a vital alternative to the Khevi-Ubisa highway to facilitate international and national traffic during highway construction.

“The project will support the government’s development priorities of improving road connectivity across Georgia and broadening access to economic opportunities,” said Yesim Elhan-Kayalar, ADB Country Director in Georgia.
