A ₾36.4 Million Road Bridge Connecting Bagebi and University Streets Opens

The newly constructed road bridge connecting Bagebi settlement and University Street is now open to vehicle traffic.

The project was inaugurated by Georgian Prime Minister Irakli Kobakhidze and Tbilisi Mayor Kakha Kaladze. Kaladze provided details of the project and expressed gratitude to everyone involved in the construction of the bridge.

"I would like to thank the company 'Construction Service,' which managed this project. It is a Georgian company, and all the materials used for the bridge were manufactured in Georgia. I want to thank each of you, each employee of the City Hall, for your dedication to this city and its residents. We will continue to implement many more important and joyful projects, ensuring that the people of Tbilisi live even more comfortably in our capital.

This city has great resources and opportunities; it needs renewal and organization. In recent years, many good projects have been completed, and more will be done in the future to make our capital even more beautiful, attractive, and comfortable to live in. Congratulations to everyone! From today, this bridge is open for use, and it will be accessible to vehicles in an hour," said Kakha Kaladze.

The road bridge, built alongside the existing pedestrian bridge, spans 260 meters and consists of four traffic lanes, with the distance from Tskneti Highway to University Street being 532 meters. The project included the construction of sidewalks, an outdoor lighting network with LED lights, railings, roadway insulation, a drainage system, and multiple layers of asphalt.

Additionally, access roads and traffic junctions to the bridge were organized from both University Street and the Bagebi settlement near the Tbilisi-Tskneti highway. The bridge construction was carried out in accordance with international standards, starting at the end of September 2021 and completing at the end of May 2024. The total cost of the project was 36,400,000 GEL.
