The "Azerbaijan Highway 3 Additional Financing" project, totaling $356.15 million, was approved in 2010. The project includes two directions: 1) reconstruction of Azerbaijan's trunk highway system and transit corridors; 2) reconstruction of local roads as part of the regional development strategy.
The project for reconstructing the Baku-Shamakhi-Muganli highway is meant to expand it from a two-lane to a four-lane road. The project will be completed in September 2016.
In late March 2016, the board of directors of the World Bank (WB) approved the additional $140 million for Azeravtoyol ASC to fund the expansion of the Baku-Shamakhi highway. The loan was issued through the International Bank for Reconstruction and Development (IBRD), which is a part of the WB group.
Azerbaijan joined the World Bank in 1992.
