The President and First Lady attended the groundbreaking ceremony for a 11.6-kilometer tunnel to be built on the Toghanali-Kalbajar highway in Murovdagh, APA reports.
The designed length of the highway connecting Goygol and Kalbajar districts is 81 kilometers. According to the order of the President, the highway is being built in accordance with the 1st and 2nd technical levels. Taking into account the development plan of Karabakh, the highway will have 2-4 lanes. The Murovdagh Range starts from the 16th kilometer of the project and increases from 1,900 to 3,260 meters to the top of Murovdagh. Taking into account the difficult terrain and security issues, the construction of an 11.6-kilometer tunnel under the Murovdagh Range was considered expedient.
The head of state laid the foundation of the tunnel.
