President Ilham Aliyev inspects construction activities in Hasan Aliyev Street-Ziya Bunyadov Avenue-Olympic Stadium Highway VIDEO
Baku, February 28 (AZERTAC). President of Azerbaijan Ilham Aliyev has today examined construction work in the Hasan Aliyev Street-Ziya Bunyadov Avenue-Olympic Stadium Highway.
President Ilham Aliyev was briefed about the specifications of the road. The Head of State was told that the length of the highway to be constructed from the Hasan Aliyev Street to the Koroglu metro station will be 17 km. The road will have four and six lanes. Since the previous road was too narrow, it caused traffic congestion. In addition, overpasses, tunnels and pedestrian passages will be built along the highway.
The part of the road to the Hasan Aliyev Street will be completed in the first stage. The second stage will see construction work complete from the Hasan Aliyev Street to the Ganjlik subway station. The main aim of the project is to link the Koroglu subway station with both downtown and through the Hasan Aliyev Street with the Ganjlik station. In addition, this highway will help to provide transportation access to the Olympic Stadium under construction. The road will also ease access of the Baku surrounding towns to the internationally important highways and relieve traffic in the city center.
President Ilham Aliyev gave his instructions and recommendations on the project.
