This report and recommendation of the president for the proposed North-South Railway Project in Turkmenistan describes the terms and conditions for the approval of ADB's Management or Board of Directors. The impact of the project will be increased trade between Turkmenistan and other countries in the region. The outcome will be better connectivity with neighboring countries and an efficient, safe, and reliable railway transport network in Turkmenistan. By utilizing rail instead of road to haul freight and passengers, air pollution will be reduced.
