President Ilham Aliyev inaugurated the first section of the new Baku-Guba-Russian Federation state border highway on December 28.

The highway is part of the North-South international transport corridor and is located between Yashma and Gilazi settlements of Khizi district near Baku.

The Baku-Guba-Russian Federation state border highway, which is being built in line with the president’s orders and instructions, is another important step in the expansion of road infrastructure and its further modernization. As part of this project, reconstruction of the section from 7.5 km of the road to Masazir circle has been completed.

Chairman of the Board of the Azerbaijan State Roads Agency Saleh Mammadov told Aliyev that as part of the project, the automobile tunnel under the Khirdalan circle has been expanded, and additional tunnels have been built in each direction. In addition, during the reconstruction, a two-lane road was built on the sections going up to and down from Khirdalan circle. The work done plays an important role in preventing traffic jams arising in this direction, ensuring the safety of drivers and passengers.

Moreover, according to the project, a new railway bridge has been built near the Khirdalan circle of the Baku-Guba-Russian Federation state border highway. The implementation of the project will play a major role in preventing traffic jams in this part of the city and ensure the safety of train traffic.

The new road with the length150km has four lanes. Presently, the construction of a new highway between the Shabran's Gandob village and Gusar's Samur village is nearing completion. It should be noted that the new highway is shorter by 13 km than the previous one. The construction of the remaining sections of the road is scheduled for completion in the second half of next year.

The new highway can be accessed by road interchanges through the Siyazan and Shabran regions, as well as the territory intersecting with the Guba-Khachmaz highway. The toll for using the new highway will be different for every kilometer for trucks and cars.

The construction of this road will further increase the effectiveness of the international transport corridor "North-South", which is of strategic importance in terms of international transport cooperation.

Construction of the road will serve to further expand economic cooperation of Azerbaijan with the countries participating in the project. In addition, the construction of the new road, along with further improvement of transport services, will give an additional impetus to the development of tourism in the region and will play a major role in cargo and passenger traffic along the corridor.
