Ambassador Nikoloz Nadbiladze told today the press conference that the completion of the project may be delayed because of the August happenings and some technical problems.

Director of Marabda-Kartsakhi Railway Ltd. Bidzina Bregadze told Georgian mass media that the work had gone out of schedule because of some technical problems. He said while constructing the tunnel linking Georgia and Turkey, it became known that the area had a danger of slip.
“Therefore it is necessary to change the project,” he said.
The project cost over $600 million. Azerinsaatservis is constructing Georgian-part of the railway. A 76km long railway will be laid in Turkey as part of Baku-Tbilisi-Kars Rail Link.
