Namely the three following sections totalling 35.5 kilometres:

  1. Tbilisi – Vaziani section;
  2. Vaziani – Sagarejo section;
  3. Sagarejo Bypass.

This road is located in the Kakheti region, one of the main historical, economic and cultural areas in Georgia, being part of the main transport corridor to the north-western region of Azerbaijan.

The new road will have two lanes per direction, includes 4 interchanges and 41 bridges and will be constructed using cement-concrete pavement.
