The 500 kilometer (km) Bishkek-Torugart road is part of the Central Asia Regional Economic Cooperation (CAREC) Corridor 1 linking the Kyrgyz Republic with the People's Republic of China (PRC) and other Central Asian countries. The Torugart post is a major border control and customs facility between the Kyrgyz Republic and the PRC. The road condition is poor; border-crossing facilities and procedures are outdated and inefficient, and they obstruct international traffic and trade. Improved road and customs infrastructure will remove the obstruction and open up this corridor for wider regional trade and economic cooperation. It will reduce travel and transit times from the current 3 to 4 days to 2 days.
