No Route Out: Commercial transport stranded at crucial Lars Pass; only north-south link

December 14, 2012 Leave a comment Go to comments

The only highway connecting Armenia with the rest of the Commonwealth of Independent States (CIS) is closed for weather conditions, the official reports says, while cargo companies believe the reason is Russian-Georgian tensions.

Armenian Ministry of Transport and Communications reports that Stepantsminda-Lars highway on the Russian-Georgian border – the key trade highway linking Iran, Armenia, Georgia and Russia – is blocked for truck trailers, semi-trailers and buses larger than 30-seaters.

The ministry does not have data on how many Armenian trucks are stuck at Upper Lars right now and doesn’t know when the road will be available to them.
