Makhachkala, December 19, 2016. Dagestani authorities intend to build a new tunnel under Atlybinskii (Buinakskii) pass, - the head of Dagestan Road Agency Zagid Khuchbarov says.
"The new tunnel is designed to be construction under Atlybinskii pass. Due to this, the new tunnel will decrease the 9 kilometer route Makhachkala - Buynaksk to 3.8 km and the travel time will be reduced from the current 20 to 2,5 minute" – Khuchbarov noted.
It is expected that the tunnel’s construction, taking into account the average daily traffic rate (more than 6 thousand cars) would bring significant economic effect.

The final version of the construction project will be submitted for examination to Moscow in August 2017.
