@ Verso; that picture is a year old, the talks of reopening the Turkish-Armenian border were in the second quarter of 2010 I believe.

Shops and cafes along state roads of Armenia to have single architectural style

PanARMENIAN.Net - During the November 18 sitting, the Armenian government approved introduction of a catalogue for architectural designs of trade and service facilities located at territories adjacent to the state and international roads.

Armenian Minister of Urban Development Vardan Vardanyan told a briefing that the development of the catalogue is aimed at regulation of disorganized and various constructions at the aforementioned territories, what will contribute to formation of an environment with single architectural solutions.

According to him, around 10 design offers will be presented in the catalogue for construction of trade and service facilities. Besides, the designs will offer governors of the country’s regions to keep to these architectural solutions. The Minister added that operating facilities at the aforementioned territories will not be destroyed.

Interestingly, Google Maps suggests this route between London and Tehran:
http://maps.google.com/maps?f=d&sour...72&ie=UTF8&z=4
That's because of roads on Iran-Turkey border weren't drawn well by Google. Also, the Turkish-Armenian border hasn't opened yet. (dunno when will it be.)

Armenian Highway Project Falls Behind Schedule



A multimillion-dollar project designed to upgrade most of Armenia’s main highways and enhance its transport communication with neighboring Iran and Georgia has still not been launched almost one year after being approved by the Armenian government.

Transport and Communications Minister Manuk Vartanian on Friday blamed the delay on the government’s failure so far to find foreign contractors offering reasonable prices.

The project, estimated to cost around $1 billion, envisages the expansion and repair of roads stretching from the Armenian-Iranian border to one of the two main Armenian-Georgian border crossings.

The Asian Development Bank (ADB) agreed in September 2009 to finance it with a $500 million loan to be disbursed to the Armenian government. It said the rest of the sum will be raised by Yerevan and “other development partners.”

Prime Minister Tigran Sarkisian’s cabinet gave the final green light to the scheme in January 2010. The then Economy Minister Nerses Yeritsian said up to $120 million worth of construction work will be carried out in the course of this year.

The government subsequently called an international tender for the right to upgrade the first highway section.

“A tender took place [in November] but we declared no winners because the submitted bids were quite expensive,” Vartanian told journalists. He said the government will call another tender this spring.

Vartanian also revealed that he has personally written to two dozen “authoritative foreign construction firms” urging them to bid for the project contracts. “Local builders can not construct such a highway,” he said. “It’s going to be a new highway meeting higher standards.”

The ADB also approved in 2009 $500 million in funding for road construction in southern Georgia and the Black Sea region of Ajara in particular. The Armenian and Georgian governments had earlier agreed to jointly seek external assistance for rebuilding highways in those areas to substantially shorten travel between Armenia and the Georgian Black Sea coast.

Armenian officials have said that another aim of the infrastructure upgrades in the two South Caucasus states is to make it much easier for neighboring Iran to use Armenian territory for freight shipments to and from Georgia and other countries.

Question about border crossings and Armenia's E roads...

The UNECE prescribed a European Int'l Road (E002) to connect Meghri to southern Azerbaijan east and west of Meghri, just north of the Iran border. Of course, the land border crossings here are closed.

How close to each of the two Azerbaijan-Armenia borders can one legally drive on the intended E002 road before reaching the road closure on each side? Is there a barricade <1 km from each side of each border? Or is the road closed farther from border? In other words, which parts of the intended E002 road is open to traffic in both countries?

Hi every one. I have to do a project about Armenia for my high school here in Uruguay. I have some question which I was wondering if someone could help me with them:

1.It is true that Armenia has 15.000Km of roads, where 7.600 are expressways?. If it it true from where to where the expressways goes. A map showing this would be wonderfull for me.

2.I don t understand armenian in the video of the motorway proyect, which is before mine post and post by Nima-Farid, what the green, red, yellow and blue colors means?

3. And the last question why did the turks close the road whit Armenia?

Thanks you for you attention, sorry for bother

Have a good one

Armenia does not have 7600 kilometers of expressways. Perhaps the M-network is 7600 kilometers long, but I doubt even that. Armenia does have a number of 4-lane roads, some of which are motorway-like, but they don't have real motorway status roads as far as I know.

Considering the very mountainous terrain in southern Armenia (the M2) I don't think this will be a motorway. There are no large cities in southern Armenia, and international through traffic from Iran is not that much that it requires a motorway. I think this is just an upgrade of the existing road.

The northern part from Yerevan to Gyumri may become a motorway or 4-lane highway at some point, as it is easier to construct.

The border between Armenia and Turkey is closed for political reasons. The frequent unrest in the northern Caucasus sometimes leaves Armenia very isolated. Only the borders with Iran and Georgia are open to traffic, but the border between Russia and Georgia is sometimes closed, which means transportation to Armenia is inefficient at times.

Good info thank you.

How much do you estimate that Armenia has of the 4-lane roads (no exactly motorways) that you say?. There can be 7.600km? or is it too much, and 15.000km of pavement roads is OK?.
In the east does people from Azerbaijan also close the road as the turks?

Sorry for be annoying but I have another question. I read in wikypethia that the railway of Armenia is of 850Km would you say that is correct?
