Given the scale of the disaster in Racha, it seems that the full restoration of capital infrastructure will take some time – approximately until the spring of 2021. Georgian Prime Minister Giorgi Gakharia made this statement during today's session of the government.
The government will allocate up to 45 million GEL for disaster cleanup in Racha.
Essential on-site works were completed ahead of schedule.
"Unfortunately, the natural disaster in Racha was somewhat large-scale and severe. Disaster cleanup and rehabilitation works are underway. Fortunately, essential works were completed faster than expected, which means that traffic to the villages that were cut off from the outside world was restored fairly quickly. Also, as of today, all the villages are being supplied with water, as well as electricity. However, capital construction and restoration works are underway and today, we must discuss the allocation of additional funds for these capital construction works, especially in terms of road works," the Prime Minister noted.
