February 8, Fineko/abc.az. Work is ongoing successfully on the expansion of four lanes of the highway between the border checkpoints ‘Hanob’, ‘Shirvanovka’ and ‘Samur’ on the Azerbaijani-Russian border.

ABC.AZ was informed at the Azerbaijani State Motor Road Agency that work is currently underway on dismantling of the existing pavement, raising and expanding the soil layer to the level of natural terrain, transferring the communication lines, driving piles and creating a new soil layer.
