In the Western Europe of the 1950s, bringing roads into a pan-European context was also a guaranteed booster for your project. Both in terms of local support and in generating funds. 1950s Dutch kilometer posts along E-routes featured pointers to the terminus of the relevant E-route. Mind you, we had kilometer posts that featured Moscow on them ...

Of course, I'm not saying that Georgia is 60 years behind Western Europe, but in terms of international transport I do see a similarity. The country is in an area where international transport appears to be a very novel thing - particularly in directions other than former Soviet countries. Opening corridors to countries like Turkey probably is an important thing economically, so placing one ring road into that international corridor thing is likely to win a few minds for the project. Yet I do hope that they will pick different focals for the signs once posted. Ankara next to national destinations is fine, but only Ankara and Istanbul is definitely over the top ...

Exactely what I mean. I understand that Turkey is important partner for Georgia, but IMO Sarp/Kemalpasha (border cities) on the upper post and Trabzon on the lower would be enough. It would be also more correct, because E97 itself goes only to Trabzon, not to Ankara.

New Google Earth imagery confirms the motorway is ready until Gori, and U/C west of Gori.

i passed through that section in 2009, while it was still under construction. funny thing is that even then I didn't notice any de-leveled interchanges on this "highway". Is it a case even now, cos in a video I can spot quite a few in-level minor roads joining. It's a bit unrational to me to call this road motorway if there aren't de-leveled exits and joints. Kokoity, can you help here?

Because it's better than asphalt. Super low maintenance too. Roadways, highways and motorways poured in the 1900's-70s are only now undergoing major repaving with new concrete, or are scheduled to in the near future.

"Richtgeschwindigkeit" is the best system for all European motorways, and should be the default system in all the EU!

Renovation of the Tbilisi-Tianeti road finished
Friday, November 4
The repair works on 8.3 km of road between Tbilisi and Tianeti have been completed. On 3 November the Minister of Regional Development and Infrastructure of Georgia, Ramaz Nikolaishvili, visited the new road with the President's Governor of the Mtskheta-Mtianeti region, Tsezar Chocheli, and met with the local population.

Nikolaishvili introduced the Georgian Government's "10-point Strategy" ("Ten-Point plan for modernization and employment for the years 2011-2015") to the audience that attended. One of the main aims of the strategy is to improve the social conditions and create well-paid jobs.

The road, which goes to Tianeti and Lake Sion had become impassable, creating problems for the local population to access other regions. The foundation works were carried out with drainage canals and then asphalt covered, by the Department of Roads of the Ministry of Regional Development and Infrastructure. The project was funded by a loan from the World Bank with more than 100 people employed for the road works, mostly local residents.

Just a question, maybe someone here knows, is it possible to cross the line/border between central Georgia and Abkhazia at all or is it totally closed?
