Today, the people had closed off the interstate road at Engels district of Alaverdi town. Aren Mkrtchyan, a member of the majority My Step faction of the National Assembly of Armenia, noted about this in a Facebook post.
"The citizens wanted to know a timeframe for the asphalting of the M6 interstate road’s Alaverdi section, which is under repair. The other requirement was the regular operation of the water trucks, as rising dust [from the repair] causes inconvenience to residents.
After talking to Minister [of Territorial Administration and Infrastructure] Suren Papikyan, I met with the citizens in Engels district. Regarding the asphalting, I have noted a clear timeframe; an appropriate instruction will be given for intensive work of the water trucks.
The interstate road is open," Mkrtchyan added.
