Description The Project 3 will upgrade the existing 2-lane asphalt road to a 4-lane cement concrete road. The total length of the proposed rehabilitation is 87 km of the A-380 highway near Bukhara city (KM 228 to KM 315). In addition, the Project will continue the capacity development efforts that were initiated in the earlier projects funded by ADB under the CAREC Corridor 2 Road Investment Program to improve road sustainablity using road asset management systems.
Project Rationale and Linkage to Country/Regional Strategy Uzbekistan is a key transit point for Central Asian countries looking to trade among themselves, as well as with the rest of Asia and Europe. In 2010, ADB approved the first multitranche financing facility for the CAREC Corridor 2 Road Investment Program for rehabilitating 175km of the A-380 highway between Urgench and Bukhara. The proposed Project 3 of the Second CAREC Corridor 2 Road Investment Program will rehabilitate the remaining 87km of the A-380 highway near Bukhara. This will result in completing a crucial section of the highway, which connects Uzbekistan to Afghanistan, Kazakhstan, the Kyrgyz Republic, Tajikistan, and Turkmenistan. The highway is part of the CAREC Corridor 2, which links Central Asia with the Caspian Sea. The proposed project will contribute to the improvement of connectivity and road safety, and boost domestic and international trade. The Second CAREC Corridor 2 Road Investment Program fits with Strategy 2020 of the Asian Development Bank (ADB), is included in the country operations business plan for Uzbekistan, and is aligned with the United Nations Decade of Action for Road Safety.
Impact Better connectivity, efficient transport system, and effective management for the Uzbekistan sections of CAREC Corridor 2 Road (Periodic traffic reports of Uzavtoyul)
Outcome Improved travel efficiency on the reconstructed A380 highway section.
Outputs

Km 228 -315 road section in A380 highway reconstructed
