Uzbekistan Today (English) - - REGIONS -

To­day, many far-flung ar­eas of the coun­try face a num­ber of se­ri­ous prob­lems. For ex­am­ple, due to the ir­re­spon­si­bil­ity of the part­ner­ships of pri­vate home­own­ers and lo­cal hokimiy­ats, the hous­ing stock has not been re­paired for years, which has led to a de­te­ri­o­ra­tion in the con­di­tion of the roof of the houses and their ap­pear­ance.

In ad­di­tion, fre­quent ac­ci­dents in power net­works and trans­former points in ru­ral set­tle­ments lead to nu­mer­ous power out­ages, there is a short­age of LPG cylin­ders.

Among other prob­lems is the poorly con­ducted work on re­pair and main­te­nance of high­ways on the ground, faulty con­di­tion of wa­ter sup­ply net­works and struc­tures, non-com­pli­ance with san­i­tary re­quire­ments of sew­er­age.

The new pro­gram is de­signed to change the cur­rent sit­u­a­tion. Since April 1, 2018, in the two vil­lages and in sub­se­quent years - in three vil­lages in each dis­trict and city of the repub­lic, first of all, in re­mote set­tle­ments with com­pli­cated nat­u­ral and cli­matic con­di­tions, the Obod Qishloq pro­gram will be im­ple­mented.

It pro­vides for the com­pre­hen­sive up­date only in 2018 of the ter­ri­to­ries of 368 ma­hal­las in 174 dis­tricts of the coun­try. Par­tic­u­lar at­ten­tion will be paid to re­pair­ing the roof, fa­cades of 127,143 houses, im­prove­ment of the ad­ja­cent ter­ri­to­ries.

In ad­di­tion, the pro­gram plans to re­pair 1,535 km of drinking wa­ter sup­ply net­works, re­duce groundwater level, build a to­tal of 2,083 km of roads to con­nect vil­lages with re­gional cen­ters, re­con­struct and re­pair in­ter­nal ru­ral roads and side­walks.

To es­tab­lish a trans­port con­nec­tion with the out­back, 571 mod­ern buses will be pur­chased, 252 stops will be built along the new routes.
