Uzbekistan - Railway Modernization Project

The railroad is the primary mode of long distance and bulk freight transport and therefore essential for the country's international, subregional, and domestic economic development. Since the breakup of the Soviet Union, there has been considerable underinvestment in the railway sector, resulting in major operational inefficiencies and underutilization of railway carrying capacity. The Railway Modernization Project (the Project) was to complete the rehabilitation of the main railway route and to continue implementation of the policy reforms and restructuring initiatives started under the first railway rehabilitation project.
