It should be noted that immediately after the incident, employees of the State Road Agency of Azerbaijan were involved in the territory and additional security measures were taken.
The leadership of the agency and employees of relevant institutions inspected the bridge collapsed as a result of the disaster and decided to build a new road bridge in its place. In this regard, special equipment was brought to the site and work began.
The construction of the new bridge is planned to be carried out in a short period of time.
In order to ensure unimpeded movement of citizens, works are being carried out in the direction of construction of a temporary pedestrian walkway on the territory. It is planned to complete these works and put the footpath into operation during the day.
As an alternative road, drivers can temporarily use the road passing through Kimilgishlag village, Khachmaz district.
