Description

The project calls for the reconstruction and upgrading of the road section (62 km) connecting the city of Shymkent and the Uzbek border, financed by the EBRD. The remaining road section (37 km) will be financed by ADB.

The project is upgrading the South-West international transport corridor linking Europe with China. Once upgraded, this road will help to accelerate development of regional trade by facilitating the transit of goods and passengers from Uzbekistan and Tajikistan to Kazakhstan, Russia and Western Europe.
