Delays in opening the Turkish-Armenian border are increasing the importance of the Baku-Tbilisi-Akhalkalaki-Kars railway project. However the project continues to be implemented.

Currently the Georgian Government has started purchasing plots of land from private individuals. This land is needed for constructing the railway on as well as building the appropriate infrastructure. This process is being administered by the Association for the Protection of Landowners Rights.

In the Tetritskaro region three hectares of land need to be purchased. Significant parcels of land must also be found in Akhalkalaki and Ninotsminda. Around 100 hectares of land must be purchased in these three regions together.
