Description

The project covers about 57 km of CAREC Corridor 3 in Rudaki, Gissar, Shakhrinav and Tursunzade districts. The Dushanbe–Tursunzade–Uzbekistan border road (project road) shows severe pavement distress, and reached traffic volume capacity, necessitating road widening from the West Gate to Tursunzade. Due to the faster than average traffic growth on this section and inadequate maintenance, the road currently cannot cope with the traffic demand.
