Civil Georgia, Tbilisi / 14 Jun.'14 / 13:58

Kazbegi-Zemo Larsi border-crossing point between Russia and Georgia, which was closed down after a landslide hit the Dariali gorge on May 17, reopened on Saturday, the Georgian Interior Ministry said.

Traffic will run through a “temporary road”, which was possible to open after the area was cleaned from a large amount of debris, the Ministry of Infrastructure and Regional Development said.

According to the Interior Ministry the border-crossing point will operate round the clock and all types of vehicles will be able to move via the temporary road. It, however, also said that because of still ongoing reconstruction works, traffic of vehicles will be carried out “gradually.”  

This road is also important for Armenia as it is the only land access for this country to Russia via Georgia.
