According to ADB website, ADB is helping Azerbaijan finance a comprehensive road network program. Under the fourth tranche of the multitranche financing facility, the project will reconstruct four bridges and rehabilitate 30 kilometers of local roads in the Ganja-Qazax region.
The tranche 4 Project is a high priority of the government and is included in the Road Network Development Program for 2006 2015 under the Transport Sector Development Strategy. It forms part of the country's primary east west highway linking the country's capital, Baku, to the Georgian border. Currently, the bridges and local roads are in poor and critical condition, resulting in high transport costs, long delivery times, and road crashes. This constitutes impediments to non-oil sector growth and poverty reduction in Azerbaijan, as well as regional trade development. Reconstruction of these bridges and associated local roads improvement will promote national and regional trade, thus contributing to the achievement of the objectives of the state program on poverty reduction and economic development.
This project is related to three (3) active projects: ADB-39176-013 (MFF-Road Network Development Program), ADB-39176-023 (Road Network Development Program - Tranche 1) and ADB-39176-043 (Road Network Development Program - Tranche 3).
