ArmInfo. 2.5 thsd tons of petrol will be delivered to Armenia on
September 3. The petrol is currently being unloaded from tankers,
Armenian MP, Co-chairman of the Association on Armenian-Georgian
Business Cooperation Vladimir Badalyan told journalists.

A total of 982 waggons (54 thsd tons of cargoes), 68 of them
with petrol, 350 with wheat, and about 500 with mixed cargoes were
delivered to Armenia after restoration of the side railroad in Georgia,
he said. According to him, this way is used not only for trains to
Armenia and from Armenia, but also for those from Azerbaijan, and
this makes the whole process difficult.

"The main bridge will be restored only in a month", the MP noted. To
recall, the side railroad in Metekhi-Grakale section was restored
on August 20, and this helped establish the railroad service between
Georgia and Armenia, which was suspended due to the explosion of the
bridge in Gori-Tbilisi railroad section on August 16.
