Georgia, Tbilisi, 22 August / Trend corr. N.Kirtskhalia / A blast was attempted to commit on another railway bridge in the Kvemo Kartli region ( East Georgia) on 22 August. This was told the Imedi radio by David Kirkitadze, Governor in Kvemo Kartli.

"The explosive was placed on the post, which is located near the Imir Marneuli region. However, the explosion did not damage the bridge.

Kirkitadze said that the explosion was committed to damage another Georgian transport system. "The bridge provides cargo transport to Armenia. Those who wanted to damage the bridge aimed to paralyze cargo transport to Armenia," Kirkitadze said.

Transportation via the Georgian railway bridge was suspended due to the blast that took place on the bridge near the Grakali village in Kasp region in Georgia a week ago. The railway bridge is expected to be put into operation on 27 August. Repairs over the bridge are being carried out by Georgian, Azerbaijani and Armenian specialists.
