The current restrictions are mainly maintained in Georgiaís mountainous regions, where the threat of avalanches and frozen roads are major risk factors.
Trailer trucks, semi-trailers and transports with more than a 30-seat capacity are currently prohibited from travelling on the eastern mountainous Aragvispiri-Gudauri-Larsi road section, which is part of eastern Mtskheta-Stepantsminda-Larsi route. Other vehicles are permitted.
The Gudauri-Kobi section of the same route is open only with the use of snit-skid chains.
The Aragvispiri-Gudauri section of Mtskheta-Stepantsminda-Larsi route is open for all transport.
The 173-188 km road section of the western Zugdidi-Jvari-Mestia route is closed due to the risk of avalanches.
The 70-172th km of the same route is open for off-road vehicles and all the other transports if they are equipped with snow chains.
The 37-57th road section of the western Kutaisi- Tkibuli-Tkibuli-Ambrolauri route has been cleaned and is open for all transport without snit-skid chains except trailers, semi-trailers and the transports with a more than 30-seat capacity.
The 94-110th road section of the southern Koda-Partskhisi-Manglisi-Tsalka-Ninotsminda route is closed for all transport.
