Preparing the East-West Highway (Shorapani-Argveta Section) Improvement


The Government of Georgia, through the Roads Department of the Ministry of Regional Development and Infrastructure, is planning capacity expansion of the current two-lane mountainous section of the East-West Highway (Highway E60) between Chumateleti and Argveta in central Georgia, a distance of about 53 kilometers, through mountainous terrain. The Government has requested the Asian Development Bank (ADB) and several other development partners to finance this expansion program.

Expected Outcome

The proposed project will improve the Shorapani Argveta section (F4) of the East-West Highway. The proposed small-scale technical assistance will ensure that the project will be prepared to acceptable technical, safeguards, and procurement standards.
