IRD Engineering has been selected by the Azeri Road Agency (AzerAvtoYol OJSC) to supervise the Civil Works Contract for 4-laning of the Baku-Shamakhi-Muganli Road between km 91.00 and km 107.00. The Road is part of the M4 Highway linking Baku with the Western Azerbaijan and the Border with Georgia through M5 Highway.

The project will be financed by WB under FIDIC MDBH Edition Conditions of Contract, and will involve the upgrading of the Baku-Shamakhi-Muganli Road in the Section between km 91.00 and km 107.00, which will be the second section of the road for which IRD will act as the "Engineer".

The Works, which will mainly involve reconstruction and upgrading of the existing 2-lane road to a 4-lane full standard, consistute a really interesting engineering challenge due to the characteristics of the terrain crossed, which is mainly hilly and seriously affected by landslides and slope instability problems.
