Project Description

According to ADB website, the Government of Uzbekistan has requested ADB assistance for the electrification of the railway line from Pap to Namangan to Andijan. Primarily, the proposed project will electrify the missing 145.1 kilometers (km) of non-electrified track linking major cities in the populous Fergana Valley with Tashkent. This will facilitate direct and efficient operation of both freight and passenger train services and thereby promote economic and social development of the Fergana Valley.

The project will increase the mobility of goods and people in the Fergana Valley, improve environmental and safety performance of railways, and accelerate regional connectivity. As of 2016, rail operations on the Pap Namangan Andijan line are limited to two passenger trains and three freight trains per day. By extending an adjacent project being undertaken by UTY to electrify the Pap Kokand Margilan Andijan line, the project will allow reliable, more frequent, and higher-speed connections between the major cities and towns in the Fergana Valley.

ACCOUNTABILITY MECHANISM OF ADB

The Accountability Mechanism is an independent complaint mechanism and fact-finding body for people who believe they are likely to be, or have been, adversely affected by an Asian Development Bank-financed project. If you submit a complaint to the Accountability Mechanism, they may investigate to assess whether the Asian Development Bank is following its own policies and procedures for preventing harm to people or the environment. You can learn more about the Accountability Mechanism and how to file a complaint at: http://www.adb.org/site/accountability-mechanism/main
