YEREVAN, September 2. /ARKA/. About 500 freight cars with 54,000 tons
of cargoes were delivered from Georgia to Armenia after the repair of a
bypass railroad in Georgia, member of Armenian Parliament Co-Chair of
Armenian-Georgian Business Cooperation Association Vladimir Badalyan
reported.

Armenian and Georgian specialists repaired the bypass railway bridge on
Metekhi-Grakale section on August 20 to resume railway communication
between Armenia and Georgia stopped due to blow-up of the bridge on
Gori-Tbilisi railroad section on August 16.

Badalyan pointed out that 2,500 tons of petrol that are currently
being unloaded will arrive in Armenia on September 3.

The problem is that this temporary railroad is used to transport
cargoes going not only to Armenia and from Armenia, but also from
Azerbaijan, Badalyan said adding that the main bridge will be repaired
in a month.
