Project Description
The new East-West Highway (EWH) traversing Georgia is part of the CTC and runs from the Red Bridge at the Azerbaijan Border to the Poti Port at the Black Sea coast for around 400 km; it carries a high proportion of total foreign trade and is seen as a central element of Georgia’s plan to build its economy as a transport and logistics hub for trade between Central Asia, the Far East, Turkey and Europe. There has been an on going programme of upgrades to the EWH which is due to complete by 2022. Construction of East-West E-60 (Poti-Tbilisi-Red Bridge) and E-70 (Poti-Batumi-Sarpi) Highway is at different stage. Approximately 160 kilometres of the EWH have already been upgraded; works are on going to complete an additional 177 km in 2016 with the support of the World Bank, EIB, ADB and JICA. The total estimated cost of upgrading the EWH corridor (2x2 lanes) is around USD 2.3 billion, which is equivalent to around 14.0% of Georgia’s GDP in 2014. In addition to reducing travel time between Tbilisi and Batumi by 40%, the wider impact of this project on Georgia’s economy is estimated to enable an increase of 4.0% in GDP.
