YEREVAN (Noyan Tapan)–The reconstruction of the third and fourth pits of the Arpa-Sevan tunnel is due to begin this month. Talking to Noyan Tapan–Arpa-Sevan Ltd. President Hakob Hakobian said that the decision to restore the pits was made by the government late last year–but the work was delayed due to lack of funding.
If properly financed–the project will be completed by next spring. The dangerous sections of the tunnel wells are to be repaired before the reconstruction of the pits begin. The repairs will be done by a contractor company that wins a relevant tender.
