Improving the East-West Road Corridor is a priority for Tajikistan, enabling the country to serve as an important transit route in the Central Asian region. The remaining phase of the Corridor aims to construct a 75 km alternative alignment (the “Project road”) for the existing M41 highway connecting the northeast region of Tajikistan and the Kyrgyz Republic between Obigarm and Nurobod, which will be inundated by the reservoir of the Rogun Hydropower Project (HPP). The Project road will be financed by the Government of Tajikistan with support from the Asian Development Bank (ADB), European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (EBRD) and Asian Infrastructure Investment Bank (AIIB).
The project road is divided into three sections: (1) the Obigarm- Tagikamar section is about 30 km long and includes 2 tunnels of 1.6 km and 1.7 km and local access roads of circa 30 km (Section 1); (ii) the Tagikamar-Nurobod is about 44 km long and includes 1 tunnel of 2.6 km, 1 long temporary bridge and local access roads of circa 40 km (Section 2); and (iii) section 3 includes a long permanent bridge that is about 760 m long and its approaches. These sections correspond to three contract packages that will be procured separately.
EBRD will finance section 2. Projects Implementation Unit for Roads Rehabilitation (PIURR) under MoT will implement the Project.
The project will support increasing efficiency of the Regulator and road financing (“Well-Governed”) and Economic Inclusion (“Inclusive”).
