Project Rationale and Linkage to Country/Regional Strategy

The proposed Surkhandarya Regional Road Project will rehabilitate the 111-kilometer Denau to Derbent Road, linking the Central Asia Regional Economic Cooperation (CAREC) Corridors 3b and 6b (Dushanbe to Gwadar/Karachi Sea Ports). By strengthening this link, the project road will support the broader CAREC corridor network. The project will also support the institutional development of the Government's Committee for Roads (CR). The project continues the Asian Development Banks (ADB's) assistance to the Government for improvement of the country's road sector, both institutionally and through improving important parts of the network.

As a key node in an international road network, Uzbekistan is a contributor to as well as a beneficiary of regional integration to enhance global connectivity, increase international trade and ultimately diversify livelihoods in Central Asia. Three major CAREC corridors, 2, 3b and 6b, provide connectivity with other Central Asian countries.
