A special snow fence that will allow to keep the road passable regardless of weather conditions is being installed along Sisian-Goris highway.

Only 300 meters of the road is covered by the protective net at this point; it is planned to install a 12-kilometer fence. The most problematic part of the highway, which is always blocked when it snows, is going to be protected.

It is estimated that after the fencing, there will not be such problems. The installation of a 300-meter snow fence was experimental. Most likely, up to 1.2-kilometer part of the road will be fenced this winter. The information regarding the other parts is not yet clear.

The project is implemented by “Syunik Region Development and Investment Fund”, in partnership with Zangezur Copper and Molybdenum Combine.
