On October 7, the President of Azerbaijan Ilham Aliyev participated in the opening ceremony of the road ranging from Khinalig village of Guba district to the district center. The 5km-long road with the width of 8-10 meters took 3 months to complete, Trend reports quoting LIDER TV. The mountainous road passes through 8 villages. AZN 14 million has been spent and 45,000 tons of asphalt has been used for the construction of the road. Nine new bridges have been built within the framework of the project.
Addressing the opening ceremony, the Head of State stressed that the commissioning of the mountainous road testifies for Azerbaijan's ability to carry out such projects. The construction of a road from an outlying mountainous village like Khinalig means the roads can be constructed everywhere, Aliyev said, adding that all these measures target increasing the financial welfare of the Azerbaijani people.
Thereafter, the President participated in the opening ceremony of a frontier post in Khinalig village.
In addition, the President intends, together with his spouse Mehriban Aliyeva, to visit the secondary school built in Gachresh village with financial support of the Heydar Aliyev Foundation.
