TSKHINVALI, April 24 (Itar-Tass) —— The Roksky Tunnel is closed for three-year reconstructions. Specialists say the tunnel cannot be used any longer, as it has not had capital repairs for more than 25 year. Builders will reconstruct the road and repair ventilation, communication, hydro-insulation and electric systems of the tunnel.
South Ossetia understands the need for repairing the Roksky Tunnel, although it is an element of the trans-Caucasian highway – the only road linking the republic to the world.
The traffic will go through a technological route, which runs parallel to the tunnel. The route is narrow, and can be travelled one way only.
“The route will operate one way for three hours and the other way for another three hours,” South Ossetian Emergency Situations Minister Anatoly Bibilov told Itar-Tass. He said that the traffic pattern should require testing. “Traffic jams may form. We will consider the traffic pattern so that it does not create inconveniences for passengers. The testing will be done once in two weeks,” he said.
