Noise in Akhmeta Culture House - confrontation followed discussion of road construction

It was noisy was in the culture house of Akhmeta. The verbal confrontation followed the public hearing of the road construction leading to the Akhmeta, Dusheti and Kazbegi municipalities.

At the meeting with the representatives of the Road Department, the representatives of the Tusheti community once again questioned the construction of the Tusheti alternative road and protested once more against the construction.

Opponents of the project say that if Tusheti alternative road is constructed, the Tusheti Protected Areas will be destroyed, which the state should not allow and local population should take part in the design. They said it would be better if the existing road rehabilitation will be done.

The project has supporters who speak about the need for the road.
