(Tbilisi - Marabda -) Kartsakhi RK - border (- Mezra - Kars) TCDD

[D] Construction started in 2008 of a 105 km line between a junction east of Akhalkalaki (RK) and Mezra (TCDD), 13 km east of Kars - 29 km in Georgia and 76 km in Turkey. The line will be 1435 mm gauge, with gauge change facilities near Akhalkalaki.

The project was originally to be completed by 2010 but is now delayed to at least 2014, owing to "complex terrain in some regions of Georgia". Its purpose is to reestablish a rail link between Azerbaijan and Turkey through Georgia following closure of the (Kars -) Dogukapi - Ahuryan (- Tbilisi) line in July 1993, when Turkey closed its border with Armenia.
