The TA's main impact will be a rehabilitated regional road of A380 Guzar-Bukhara-Nukus-Beyneu in Uzbekistan. The rehabilitated road will reduce vehicle operating costs and travel time of the domestic, regional, and transit traffic thereby contributing to the growth of domestic and international trade in the area, promoting regional cooperation with the neighboring countries, and satisfying the requirements of local population in transportation of goods and passengers. The TA outcome will be the agreed design and feasibility study for the project suitable for ADB financing.

|Project Rationale and Linkage to Country/Regional Strategy||The Draft Concept prepared by the Government indicates that existing road capacity is underutilized and that there is a need to develop transit potential. There is a need to define a list of priority road transit corridors and to establish priorities for international road transport corridor development, taking into account the funds available for construction and rehabilitation. On these designated corridors there should be upgrading of the main highways to conform to international standards and they should be maintained in good condition, including rehabilitation of individual deteriorated road sections; repairs, widening and increasing bridge capacity.|
