    Azerbaijan: East–West Highway Improvement Project

    The east–west highway corridor forms part of the Central Asia Regional Economic Cooperation (CAREC) corridor. However, owing to lack of resources for maintenance and overloading of trucks, the east–west highway, which had been developed primarily under the former Soviet Union, was in poor condition at appraisal. The poor condition of the road network was a major impediment to economic development in the six regions of west Azerbaijan (Agstafa, Ganja, Goranboy, Gazakh, Goygol, and Yevlakh).
