According to the Deputy Minister of Transport and Road Facilities of the Republic, Magomed Tagirov, this road is one of the most technically complex and capital-intensive road projects in Dagestan. He noted that the project involves the construction of a tunnel under the fortress wall.
“The experts decided that in order to save the wall, the most correct solution would be to build a tunnel under the wall instead of making an excavation. In such cases, design and construction work is carried out jointly with archaeological specialists in order to treat the cultural heritage site as carefully as possible,” he said.
The minister also said that in parallel with construction, excavations and studies of possible finds will be carried out. The cost of building a road bypassing Derbent will be 51.2 billion rubles, which are provided for by the order Russian government for the next five years.https://musicnewsfirst.com/
