Construction works were started in March, 2009.

On January 24, 2011, an inauguration ceremony for Airport and Bina road junctions was held.

Airport’s cloverleaf type junction has two levels. This junction will ensure fully safe and unimpeded co-ordination of vehicles traffic in two directions: Zykh Settlement - Airport and Baku City - Mardakan Settlement.

Junction’s total length is 6 757 meters. The structure of bridge is made of post tensioned reinforced concrete slab. The bridge has the length of 127 meters and width of 39.8 meters. For construction of the bridge 2 190 pm piling works (the diameter of piles is 1 200 mm) were fulfilled, 9 303 m3 of concrete and 1 270 tons of reinforcement were used. The area of 26 hectares surrounding the bridge has undergone reconstruction and landscaping work. Lighting works were fulfilled.

Bina junction was constructed to ensure unimpeded movement of vehicles from Bina settlement to the direction of Baku city and Mardakan settlement. Total length of junction roads is up to 3 700 meters. Bina junction overpass bridge is a cable stayed steel structure, with 40 cables holding the composite slab. The length of cable stayed bridge is 95 meters. Its width is 27,5 meters. The width of pedestrian sidewalks is 4 meters. It should be mentioned that Bina overpass bridge will serve as pedestrian crossing as well. For the construction of the bridge, 8 600 m3 of concrete, 870 tons of reinforcement and 2 200 tons of structural steel were used. The area of 8 hectares surrounding the bridge has undergone reconstruction and landscaping work. The modern irrigation system is created at the site. Lighting works were fulfilled.
