The highway connecting Armenia’s Vardenis and Karabakh’s Karvachar must be constructed by 2014, governor of Gegharkunik Region said.
Talking to the Armenian News-NEWS.am correspondent, Rafik Grigoryan said the exact amount of appropriations in the 2014 budget has not been determined, but it will be “a considerable amount.”
“Despite this, the construction work must be completed by the next year,” he added.
The road excavation works have been conducted, and the cost of its paving is estimated at $30 million. The total length of the route from Vardenis through Karvachar to Martakert exceeds 110 km.
Funds will be allocated from the budget. “Hayastan” All Armenian Fund may become a donor, as the Fund discussed the issue of financing the road at a meeting of the Board of Trustees in May 2013.
