Azerbaijan nearing completion of ‘Victory Road’ to Shusha in Karabakh

The construction of the ‘Victory Road’, named so by the President of Azerbaijan Ilham Aliyev to commemorate the path used by Azerbaijani Armed Forces during the liberation of the city of Shusha [from Armenian occupation in the 2020 second Karabakh war], is coming to an end, according to Azerbaijan in Focus, reporting Trend News on September 3.

Construction of this two-lane road began 10 months ago and its asphalting work is scheduled to be completed in September 2021.

This 101-km long ‘Victory Road’, the foundation of which was laid on November 16, 2020, is being built in accordance with the second technical category and taking into account the development plan of Karabakh.

It starts from the Hajigabul-Minjivan-Zangezur corridor and stretches to Shusha, main city of Karabakh.

Currently, the road asphalting work is at the final stage.

Two layers of asphalt pavement were laid on the 31-kilometer section of the route, and one layer on the 61-kilometer section. At other sites, this work is continuing. The construction of four bridges has also been completed on the road.
