ArmInfo. Railway traffic to Armenia via Georgia has been fully
restored, Armenian Transport and Communication Minister Press
secretary Susanna Tonoyan told ArmInfo. She said the timetable of
cargo traffic was because of the explosion of the railway bridge on
Gori-Tbilisi section. The bridge has not been repaired so far. However,
cargo traffic to Armenia was fully restored on 26 August due to an
alternative route. S. Tonoyan outlined that 40 carriages including 3
carriages with petrol, 14 carriages with various commodities and 23
carriages with grain were delivered to Armenia on 1 September. 82
carriages were delivered to the country on 31 August including 2
carriages with petrol, 44 carriages with different commodities and
36 carriages with grain. 108 carriages are on the way to Armenia,
she said.
