There is no need to evacuate the population due to the Vashlijvari landslide. Such a statement made today the mayor of Tbilisi.
“This is not necessary, however, if something urgent happens, this plan also exists. I repeat, there is no need to evacuate the population, I say this with full responsibility. If there was a danger, we would be the first to do so and take concrete steps.
At the same time, in order to take measures related to landslide, we have purchased research project and construction services from the company “Caucasus Road Project”.
I would like to talk about the measures taken in connection with the landslide processes on the Vashlijvari slope and for the safety of the population. First of all, the traffic near the slope was stopped on both sides of the roadway, in addition to launching a 24-hour monitoring of the landslide zone”, - added Kakha Kaladze.
