Traffic Easing Highway Opened in Yerevan

YEREVAN (ArmRadio)–A new highway set to significantly ease traffic congestion in downtown Yerevan was opened on Monday after three years of construction

The Saralanj road, a project financed by the Lincy Foundation, connects Heratsi Street near the Medical School in downtown Yerevan to Vagharshian Street. The new highway connects to the Yeghvard highway over the Davitashen Bridge.

The road’s inaugural ceremony Monday was attended by President Serzh Sarkisian, former President Robert Kocharian, Yerevan Mayor Yervand Zakharyan, government ministers, and other municipal authorities.

According to Zakharyan, the Saralanj Highway is one of the most important road construction projects completed since independence. It is the first highway bypassing the center of Yerevan, providing an alternative to the highly congested roads within the city.
