Head of the Georgian Tourism Administration Giorgi Chogovadze revealed the plan in his interview.
Chogovadze said rest stations would be spaced roughly 40 minutes apart on motorways at which drivers and passengers will be able to rest, eat, or refuel.
"According to our plan, on all central road arteries in Georgia there will be such services available,” Chogovadze said.
He added that there were three such road arteries in the country:
- From Tbilisi to Kakheti in Georgia’s east
- From Tbilisi to Kazbegi in Georgia’s north
- From Tbilisi to Georgia’s west
The Head of the Tourism Administration said the scale of such stations might not be as big as the one near Gori in central Georgia, but they all will include toilets and other necessary infrastructure.
He stressed that in the first phase, the state would let businessmen express their interest in the project.
"Any person or company will be able to receive a land from the state with certain conditions and build such service areas on them,” he said.
"But if the private sector doesn’t turn out to be ready to accept this offer, the relevant infrastructure will be built with the efforts from the Government.”
