[GE] Georgia | road infrastructure • საქართველო



Georgia does seem to have a motorway, from Tbilisi westbound to around Kaspi. It can be seen U/C in the 2006 Google Earth imagery. Unfortunately, Georgia is still a blank spot in mapping.
I tried to show the motorway in Google Earth:


It's hard to find pictures from Georgia, because nearly all searches will result in pics from the state of Georgia, United States







***********

please no discussions about the borders of Georgia, South Ossetia, Abkhazia or Adjara if it's not road-related.

It's such a coinsidence that earlier today I was thinking about how roads look like in Georgia... and here we go! I'd love to see more pictures though. One problem that I have figured out is that it is incredibly complicated to use search engines to find anything on Georgia due to the US State which shares the name with the country Georgia... Anyway, hope to see more action in this thread.

Interchange in Tblisi:


Sorry-- I couldn't resist! Maybe there are others...


c/o http://www.xauto.ge/en/Autonews-of-Georgia/


On August 7, at 7 pm, 25 km length high-speed section of Igoeti-Sveneti road part of International Tbilisi-Senaki-Leselidze highway will be opened.

Construction of E-60 highway was implemented by means of new technology – cement-concrete pavement – that is tested and approved in many developed countries and is distinguished by particular firmness and environmental safety. It has long lasting operational period and within 30-35 years the road does not require any rehabilitation works. It is profit-proved as vehicles run out of approximately less then 10 % fuel when driving on such type of pavement (according to the World Bank Experts’ conclusion).

Highway Parameters:


• Number of lanes - 4 lanes
• Max. longitudinal curve - 4 %
• Wight of one-way carriageway - 11,5 m
• Min. wight of median line - 4.0 m
• Wight of the lanes - 3,75 m
• Design speed - 120 km/h

“Ashtrom Internashional ltd” is executing modernization works on Igoeti-Sveneti road section

That looks like one carriageway of the motorway (half profile). The other half is probably still U/C.

the motorway is ready only till Igoeti, which is about 40 km from Tbilisi. But from the Military Road interchange to Tbilisi through Mtsheta it is not a motorway, even if it has green signs. Have you ever seen a motorway with gas stations every 100 meters and even private houses gates opening at it???? so real motorway is about 25 km as of today. I spoke with one man who travels there often and he said the road to Gori is ready on one side and other they are reconstructing. also for a large part one direction is new constructed road and the other is just old 2 line road.
