The Azerbaijani media published photos of the "new road for Armenians" under construction to bypass the Lachin corridor.
According to haqqin.az, the length of the road will be 32 km. The width of the carriageway, according to the project, will be 7 meters, the width of the subgrade - 12 meters, the width of the shoulders - 2x2.5 (5 m).
On the road, which runs through difficult terrain, the construction of ring pipes and various artificial structures for water drainage is also underway. In this regard, the construction of a four-lane bridge 139.5 meters long, built on the 22nd kilometer of the road, is currently at the final stage, the newspaper reports.
The construction of the new road was provided for in paragraph 6 of the tripartite statement dated November 9, 2020: By agreement of the Parties, a plan for the construction of a new traffic route along the Lachin corridor will be determined in the next three years, providing a connection between Nagorno-Karabakh and Armenia, with the subsequent redeployment of the Russian peacekeeping contingent to protect this route. Azerbaijan this time did not comply with the provision of the statement, having decided that it would do without any “coordinations” there.
