The construction works of "M1 Baku-Guba-the State Border of the Russian Federation new motor road" being an integral part of the "Sever-Yug (North-South)" international transportation corridor were started in March, 2018.

The 92 km long road construction works are performed in compliance with 1b technical grade standards. The 4-lane road width is 27.5 m, and the width of every lane and road side is 3.75 m, and the dividing strip width is 5 m.

In order to avoid intersections in the same road levels, it is planned to construct bridges and road interchanges, tunnels, underground passages, as well as to install drainage pipes and underground passages for animals.

The territory of the passage of the new highway road is located along the shores of the Caspian Sea in the Samur-Devechi lowland. The road under construction mostly bypasses settlements and industrial enterprises. And access roads will be built from the main villages and district centers to the highway.

The construction of the new highway road will give an impetus to the development of transport infrastructure in our country, as well as create additional conditions for the development of tourism in the region.

The project consists of 4 lots. The 1st lot covers 0-29. 9 km of the new road, the 2nd lot 29.9-53.5 km, the 3rd lot 53.5-73.5 km, and the 4th lot 73.5-92.0 km of the territory. Currently, works are being continued on all the lots.

The construction works are expected to be completed at the end of 2021.
