To­ward Roads by Euro­pean Stan­dards

Uzbek­istan and the Ger­man com­pany Roland Berger GmbH have reached a pre­lim­i­nary agree­ment on co­op­er­a­tion in the elab­o­ra­tion of a con­cept for the devel­op­ment of roads in Uzbek­istan.

Uzbekistan Today (English) - - REGIONS -

The new con­cept should pro­vide for the in­tro­duc­tion of modern stan­dards and tech­nolo­gies in the de­sign, con­struc­tion and re­con­struc­tion, as well as the re­pair of roads, de­pend­ing on their cat­e­gories, pro­vid­ing im­proved qual­ity and ser­vice life.

In ad­di­tion, it will clearly spell out the is­sues of fi­nanc­ing all these works, in­clud­ing on terms of publicpri­vate part­ner­ship.

An­other im­por­tant point is that the con­cept will con­tain a pro­gram for the con­struc­tion and re­con­struc­tion of pub­lic roads for the pe­riod from 2019 to 2040, tak­ing into ac­count the prospec­tive as­sess­ment of the so­cio-eco­nomic devel­op­ment of Uzbek­istan and its re­gions.

It is also en­vis­aged that the Uzbek side will com­plete all or­ga­ni­za­tional mea­sures to at­tract a for­eign con­sul­tant to work on the devel­op­ment con­cept by the end of Jan­uary next year.

At the same time, a spe­cial work­ing group should work out the cre­ation of joint ven­tures with Ger­man com­pa­nies for the pro­duc­tion of modern build­ing ma­te­ri­als used in the con­struc­tion and op­er­a­tion of high­ways in Uzbek­istan.

In ad­di­tion, it is planned to es­tab­lish co­op­er­a­tion with lead­ing Ger­man en­gi­neer­ing com­pa­nies in the de­sign of high­ways and ar­ti­fi­cial struc­tures, to ap­ply ad­vanced for­eign ex­pe­ri­ence in the devel­op­ment of road­side in­fra­struc­ture, the in­tro­duc­tion of modern el­e­ments of land­scape de­sign, beau­ti­fi­ca­tion and green­ing works along high­ways.

More­over, co­op­er­a­tion with the Fed­eral Min­istry of Trans­port and In­fra­struc­ture of Ger­many and lead­ing com­pa­nies will be of much help for at­tract­ing ad­vanced meth­ods and tech­nolo­gies for the con­struc­tion and op­er­a­tion of roads.

Within the frame­work of the doc­u­ment, it is also planned to re­solve the is­sue of pro­vid­ing the in­dus­try with per­son­nel. For ex­am­ple, by 1 March 2019, in­ter­ested min­istries of Uzbek­istan should sub­mit to the Cabi­net of Min­is­ters their pro­pos­als for set­ting up the Cen­ter for Ad­vanced Train­ing and Re­train­ing Spe­cial­ists at the Tashkent In­sti­tute for the De­sign, Con­struc­tion and Op­er­a­tion of Roads, en­gag­ing highly qual­i­fied ex­perts from for­eign ed­u­ca­tional in­sti­tu­tions and the com­pany.

In ad­di­tion, the state bud­get will as­sign funds to cour­ses for train­ing and ad­vanced train­ing in for­eign ed­u­ca­tional in­sti­tu­tions, as well as in­tern­ships at lead­ing road-build­ing com­pa­nies in Ger­many.
