Tbilisi, Georgia, June 17
By Nana Kirtzkhalia - Trend:

The vehicular traffic on Georgia's Rikoti pass has been temporarily banned again due to a landslide that occurred on June 17.

The Rikoti pass links Georgia's eastern and western parts.

This measure has been taken for security purposes, according to the country's Ministry of Regional Development.

The landslide occurred again on the Tbilisi-Senaki-Leselidze road and the highway was completely blocked as a result.

Currently, citizens can use the bypass road of Gomi-Sachkhere-Chiatura.

The previous landslide occurred on June 12 and the traffic was suspended for three days.
