Many tourists would like to drive along the road Keda-Akhaltsikhe, there are no problems you can go from Batumi to Kedy or from Tbilisi to Akhaltsikhe, the road is excellent, but then horror. If your average speed is 60-90 km/h, then along the road Keda-Akhaltsikhe or the Transjadzhar mainline, you will spend 4-5 hours traveling 30-40 km.
Having traveled more recently on this area, and we do it responding to your comments. We found many foreign cars. Seeing the Mercedes S class in the 222 body with the Russian numbers we could not stand it and stopped. They asked the driver how he could have come here with this car. The driver said: I got a navigator here. Come back, we said! No, I do not want to, I already crossed 2 rivers in a ford by car and I do not want to do it again - the driver answered. We cried! We felt sorry for the car and the tourist who had come here.
