Building a new bridge: by Iman Sviakauri

In Pankisi Gorge, there is the Alazani River that separates Pankisi into two sides. So, the two sides of gorge need bridges to communicate with each other. It has been a great problem during years for Pankisi people.

Last year the government built a new bridge between Jokolo and Dumasturi, but it hasn’t solved the problem, because people from Khalatsani going to Duisi through the bridge that is wooden and has become out of order.

Now Khalatsani people have good news from the government that a new bridge 100 meters long will be built for them.

The works have just started and they promise us to finish them in a month. School students are also very glad as they go to school across the river every day.
