The reconstruction of Azerbaijan's Muganli-Ismayilli-Gabala part of the Baku-Shamakhi-Muganli-Ismayilli-Gabala highway continues, AzVision.az reports citing the State Agency of Azerbaijan Automobile Roads.
The road is of particular importance for the comfortable movement of the population and is the shortest route connecting the capital with Ismayilli, Gabala, Oguz, Shaki, Gakh, Zagatala, and Balakan districts.
According to the agency, as a result of the reconstruction, the length of the road will be reduced by 9.7 kilometers and will amount to 76.8 kilometers. The existing two-lane road will be widened to four lanes.
As part of the reconstruction project of the Muganli-Ismayilli-Gabala road, the first 14-kilometer area of the road is considered geologically more complex and most susceptible to landslides. In this regard, retaining walls, drainage systems with a total length of four kilometers, and other engineering works are being carried out on four areas of the road.
