President of the Republic of Azerbaijan Ilham Aliyev has today attended the opening of the newly reconstructed Pirshaghi-Novkhani seaside road and Binagadi-Novkhani-Jorat highway.
Chairman of Azeravtoyol OJSC Saleh Mammadov informed the head of state about the works done here.
By joining the seaside ring road, Pirshaghi-Novkhani highway will ensure the convenient and unimpeded traffic from the city of Sumgayit to the north and north-east parts of the Absheron peninsula.
The highway is 13.5 km in length. Under the project, the width of the two-lane road is 9 metres. In some areas along the coast, the width of the existing road has been expanded from 3-4 metres to 9 metres.
