Tajikistan: Road Network Sustainability Project

Summary

The project will address the oblast's immediate needs by improving two national arterial roads, namely (i) Dangara Okmazor and (ii) Hulbuk Kangurt. The sections link the Asian Highway No. 66 at Dangara and Hulbuk and serve as a vital connector of major economic centers in the oblast. Further, the Dangara Okmazor section is a part of a key corridor which links with the country's major intranational road (CAREC Corridors 5 and 6) at Bokhtar. Despite their importance, the roads have not been well equipped with road safety installments and disaster-proof measures. The lack of adequate road maintenance has led to their deterioration. Improving the sections is essential for the development of the oblast in the light of the government's plan to make Dangara the oblast's key economic hub and the oblast's new capital city in coming years.
