I hope you can make some pictures of that new motorway from Tbilisi to the west (S1). As far as I know, it's the only REAL motorway in the Caucasus (Armenia has a lot of 2x2 roads, and Azerbaijan is currently building some motorway-like roads as well).

Iran reaching Georgian Black Sea Ports via Armenia
By Messenger Staff
Monday, January 18
Armenia and the Asian Development Bank have signed an agreement which specifies that in 2010-2017 the bank will allot a loan for constructing motorways connecting Armenia with the Georgian Black sea ports of Poti and Batumi. USD 120 million will be used for this purpose in 2010.

Armenia’s Transport and Communication Minister Gurgen Sarkisian has confirmed that the Asian Development Bank will allot USD 500 million. Iran's Ambassador to Armenia highlighted that Iran is interested in constructing this motorway and Iranian banks will also participate in financing the construction. The initial cost of the project is USD 962 million. The project plan has been prepared by German-Austrian Company ILF following a feasibility study undertaken by the PADECO company.

The distance between Yerevan and Batumi by road is presently around 700 kilometres. After the construction of the new motorway it will be only 450 kilometres.

Good news about that Yerevan - Batumi motorway. That would be the first modern motorway for Armenia as well.

I traveled via various Georgian roads, since 2006 and so far 6 times. Last time, it was in July/August 2009, and I've crossed only via the main road corridor in the country (Sarpi - Batumi - Kutaisi - Gori - Tbilisi - down to Armenia).
This road is in a fairly good shape, in summer 2009 it was very very good standard two lane road (one lane to each direction) till somewhere around Gori or after Gori (can't remember precisely). There, or somehow 60km before Tbilisi, so called motorway (all together with signs for it) started. Maybe I'm wrong, or I imagine motorways slightly different, but this Georgian 'motorway' was in fact what we (in Serbia) call 'fast road' or there's newer label somehow like 'regional road of the first category', meaning 2 lanes to each direction (2+2 in total), barrier in between, and that's it. And this road was still in construction there, weird construction if you ask me, all that stuff with concrete mega blocks, and asphalt over it (never seen that method before).
That road generally lacked de-leveling of connections with other roads or going off the motorway, there was no fence around the motorway, and no sign of this third track (I guess motorway should be like [1+2 ~ 2+1].
The 'full' motorway started somehow in north Tbilisian suburbs, and ended pretty soon entering the city.

Still, it's a big improvement for Georgia, and during last few years, Georgian roads get only better and better, but take this with much reserve, as I'm speaking mostly for main routes only.

anyone got some recent photos of Posof/Vale border point, and what I'm interested for, photos of the road going down via Vale to Akhaltsikhe?
Been there long time ago (2007) so curious to find out if there's any improvement on that section.

New tunnel at Metekhi Bridge to relieve traffic congestion
20.05.10
Georgian President Mikheil Saakashvili and Candidate for Tbilisi Mayor Gigi Ugulava opened Thursday a newly refurbished tunnel at the Metekhi Bridge.
The length of the new tunnel is 1270 metres. It will assist relieving traffic congestion and foot passengers will be able to walk on the territory of 8 hectares on the Europe Square (Rike Square); a park of a modern design with open-air cafes and bars will be constructed there. Tens of different species of saplings will be planted on the territory. In the park a colour fountain with function of 3D images will be installed in the park. It will allow to dispose any kind of panorama on it.
Gigi Ugulava said opening the new tunnel on the Europe Square will assist relieving traffic movement on the Ketevan Tsamebuli Avenue.
`There is no place from Dighomi district to the Ortachala Power Plant, where people can walk without crossing the traffic flow. Rike Square is becoming one of the places, where residents and guests of Tbilisi will be able to walk freely`, Gigi Ugualava said.
`A recreation space will be created here. It is very important in terms of traffic movement, because this is one of the first stages relieving Avlabari district, in particular, the Ketevan Tsamebuli Avenue by means of an alternative route`, He added.

Interesting, quite a modern motorway with quite some traffic, electronic signs, good markings and signage. Only a few houses directly along the shoulder...
