Construction of Kvesheti-Kobi Tunnel Starts This Year

Within the framework of constructing a 9-km tunnel and Kvesheti-Kobi main road, TBC (Tunnel Boring Machine) has arrived in Georgia.
 
Constructing a tunnel is carried out for the first time in Georgia using TBM.
The 9-km long tunnel will be built within Kvesheti-Kobi main highway project and will be 15 meters wide. Its analog does not exist in the region.
 
According to the Ministry of Infrastructure, constructing tunnels with these means is safer and significantly reduces the impact on the environment.
 
Intensive construction of 23 km of Kvesheti-Kobi road and 9 km of tunnel will start this year.
