The situation is tense in Ararat Province of Armenia, shamshyan.com reported.
Residents of Marmarashen village have blocked the motorway in protest and refuse to reopen it until the Minister of Territorial Administration and Infrastructure as well as the governor of Ararat arrive at the scene.
The villagers were saying: "We have to resort to this extreme measure, as you do not know which official has thought of destroying the urban [public] transport [system] of our village. There used to be two [public] transport [routes], including the number 44 route. Now they have taken it out, and not only of our village, but also the residents of several [other] villages have found themselves in a bad situation. We demand the reinstatement of the number 44 route. Otherwise, we will continue to keep the road closed."
Police officers have arrived at the scene, they are trying to persuade these villagers to reopen the motorway. But the villagers say they have no intention of reopen this motorway until the relevant officials arrive at the scene.
