According to him, the3 first train will be departed from Georgian Marabdi station and be able to move up to Turkish border.

Due to weather condition, the construction works started late. But the construction works are being conducted quickly: “Construction of railways and rehabilitations in Georgia will be reached Turkish border, at the same time, Turkish side conducts this works actively”.

Panahov noted that, reason of postponements in the project was related to 4.5 km-tunnel in Georgia-Turkey border. Landslide in the area in which tunnel is located, requires corrections in construction process and this causes to delay the works. But the works will be completed by the end of this year: “For moving of first train, condition will be created at the beginning of 2013. in 2013, the railway will be launched completely”.
