To fully emerge from its communication deadlock, Tajikistan has implemented 58 multifaceted state projects over the past 30+ years for the construction and development of highways, railways, and strategic infrastructure worth more than $2.2 billion. This was stated by the Minister of Transport of Tajikistan, Azim Ibrohim, Ritm Eurasia reports.

As part of these projects, 2407.8 km of roads, 274 bridges, two three-level and two two-level intersections, and seven transport tunnels have been built, reconstructed, and repaired. Additionally, 219 km of railways with 14 bridges and three tunnels have been constructed, Ibrohim said at the international conference "Path to Tien Shan," held in Dushanbe.

"The government of the country pays special attention to the development of the economy and the provision of multimodal corridors in Tajikistan, connecting Central Asia with other CIS countries, Southeast Asia, and Europe, and ensuring Tajikistan's access to seaports," emphasized the Minister of Transport of Tajikistan.

To confirm these words, the following figures were provided: in the field of road transport infrastructure, 17 complex projects worth more than $1.2 billion are currently being implemented in Tajikistan, and in the railway sector, more than 10 projects worth more than $7.5 billion are being carried out.

The implementation of these projects will transform Tajikistan into a country with modern transit conditions.
