According to the Bank’s website, this TA aims to complete a diagnostic study for the development of the rail corridor between Alat and Nakhchivan.
One of Azerbaijan's current infrastructure development priorities is the modernization of the railway line connecting Baku and Alat Port with Nakhchivan. The railway line between Alat and Horadiz (205 km) is still in working condition but was built in Soviet time and will need full rehabilitation. For the first section, Alat-Osmanli (60 km), design documents are available. For the section, between Osmanli and Horadiz (145 km, currently single track), no design or other documentation is available. In February 2021, the government has started constructing the Horadiz-Agbend section (100 km, crossing liberated area) as a matter of priority, because it was fully destroyed during occupation.

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.
