Project Rationale and Linkage to Country/Regional Strategy Reconstruction and improvement of the transport system and primarily its predominant highway infrastructure network is a priority for Tajikistan, much of which had been severely destroyed at estimated cost of $7 billion during the recent years of civil war. Till recent years, the IFI s intervention in transport sector mainly focused on restoring critical regional transport links, while preserving the existing infrastructure was not given due attention. It is however necessary to lay down a structured and comprehensive masterplan for development of the sector which will target efficient allocation of available resources and improve governance.
