There can be no compromise on issue of road construction quality

ArmInfo. Poorly executed  work in the field of road construction will not be accepted, and on  this issue there can be no compromise on quality standards. Prime  Minister of the Republic of Armenia Nikol Pashinyan announced this on  September 20 at a meeting on programs in the sector of road  construction.

According to him, quoted by the RA Government Press Service, the main  goal of the meeting is to discuss the current situation in the field  of road construction and upcoming tasks. "Under the North-South  program, we have already made a corresponding statement, and now we  need to understand what we have done and what remains to be done,"  Nikol Pashinyan emphasized.

Bagrat Badalyan, Deputy Minister of Territorial Administration and  Infrastructure, noted that construction and modernization of 164 km  of roads was initially planned within the framework of budgetary  financing of 33.9 billion drams. Subsequently, budgetary allocations  were increased to 43.7 billion drams, for which road construction  works are to be carried out on 330 km of roads. At present, 12.9  billion drams have been used; work on all road sections is going on  in all directions. The contracts signed during the current year  included 400 km of roads, of which at least 330 km will be completed  this year, the rest will be carried over to next year, that is, the  next year will begin with construction contracts of about 70 km.  roads. 27 contractors are participating in the project, and the total  value of contracts for 3 capital and medium repair and road  construction programs is 29.5 billion drams, of which 5.4 billion  drams were saved. This year, many contractors have acquired and  continue to acquire new equipment, as well as a large number of  equipment used also in the mining industry, which generally  contributes to improving the quality of roads.  The deputy minister  noted that weather conditions are favorable for the work, and the  planned volumes will be completed by the end of the year. Information  was also provided on road construction activities carried out as part  of subsidy programs.

The Prime Minister was also informed about the program for the  construction of the North-South Road Program. It was noted that  construction work on tranche-3 is currently underway - Talin-Lanjik  and Lanjik- Gyumri sections, and work is already underway on sections  of the road within the tranche -4 (Artashat- Agarak) and tranche-5  (Gyumri and Gyumri-Bavra bypass roads).
