First publishedon www.WorldHighways.com
Tajikistan and Kazakhstan are both investing in transport infrastructure, with an array of new projects planned. In Tajikistan the Ministry of Finance is budgeting a healthy US$1.6 billion for transportation projects in the period from 2013-2014. These include construction and reconstruction of roads, highway and railway bridges, and tunnels. Further details will be available in due course as to the roads and highways being built.
Meanwhile a loan from the Asian Development Bank to Kazakhstan will help finance work on a key road project. The 16 year loan will be used to build a 37km section of the road connecting Tashkent with Shymkent.
