The Garski Most-Izvor road section, which is part of the Kichevo-Debar regional road, is expected to be ready by the end of the year. According to the authorities, about 75 percent of the works have been completed so far and work is underway on the entire route.

The road is about 20 kilometers long, and the projections are that it will cost about 20 million euros. This road direction is significant for the residents of Mavrovo, Debar, Centar Župa, Kicevo and smaller settlements because it will allow easier and faster movement.

- The road is of great importance considering that it will enable the connection of the region of Gora Reka, Sredna Reka, Dolna Reka, i.e. Debar-Kicevo with all the settlements that gravitate in the region and will enable faster communication, especially for businesses from this region - the technical prime minister said today Talat Xhaferi, who together with the Minister of Transport and Communications Blagoj Bochvarski inspected the construction activities on this road.

Minister Bovarski said that more than two billion euros have been invested in the modernization of the road network and the construction of new roads throughout the country.

- New roads mean new development for the country, new jobs, development of the economy and ultimately bring grace to all citizens. That's our ultimate goal - said Bochvarski.

According to him, with the reconstruction of the road direction Mavrovo Anovi - Žirovnica, part of the road direction Mavrovo-Debar, for which about six million euros were invested, it was possible to bring this road direction to the level of a modern and safer road, which almost decades ago was not rehabilitated. He assessed that the realization of capital projects is going in a good direction, pointing out that if last year the realization of capital investments was at the level of 707 million euros, this year it is expected to be over 730 million euros.

According to the director of the Public Enterprise for State Roads, Eyup Ristemi, this road section is one of the most important infrastructure projects in the Southwest region.

– This road section, which stretches through a mountainous area and reaches over 1.500 meters above sea level on the passes, is one of the most important infrastructure projects in the Southwest region. The project envisages the construction of 19 kilometers of road, with a width of 6 meters. At the moment, work is being done on the entire route, tamponing is being done on some parts, retaining walls and embankments are being made somewhere, and there is already a first layer of asphalt on the higher part of the route - said Rustemi.

Rustemi announced that with the annual program, the reconstruction of the Nikiforovo-Leunovo-Bunec section in length of 10,4 kilometers with an estimated value of 6,5 million euros is planned for this calendar year.
