First Test Train from Turkey to Georgia Sent through Baku-Tbilisi-Kars Railway Route

The first test train was sent from Kars to Georgian-Turkish border through Baku-Tbilisi-Kars route, azertag.az reports.

The Baku-Tbilisi-Kars Railway, an important section in the middle of the modern Silk Road, will soon be fully commissioned, increasing connectivity among Azerbaijan, Georgia and Turkey.

The project to connect Baku with Kars via Georgia’s capital of Tbilisi by rail launched in 2007 and construction began in 2008.

Once the railway will be fully operational, all three countries will mutually benefit from improved trade and economic relations and gain additional Foreign Direct Investments (FDI) through the new railway connecting Europe and Asia.
