And that the long-awaited project which aims to revive the abandoned by youth rural area will be concluded before the end of 2025.
The 11.3 kilometers-long road is estimated to cost €89 million which corresponds to about €8 million per kilometer.
It is a four-lane highway whose width will be 22.60 meters with a 60-metre wide central islet in the middle.
