Turkmenistan to build bridge across Kara-Bogaz-Gol strait

BAKU, Azerbaijan, July 8

By Jeila Aliyeva - Trend:

Turkmenistan will build a new bridge across the Kara-Bogaz-Gol strait, connecting the bay of the same name with the Caspian Sea, Trend reports with reference to the State News Agency of Turkmenistan.

The bridge will become an important construction of the international Turkmenistan–Kazakhstan transport route.

The reconstruction of the road leading to the bridge will increase the capacity of the country's road system, expand the international transport and transit infrastructure, as well as trade and economic relations with other countries.

Currently, Turkmenistan is implementing sea, road, rail, air, and pipeline international logistics projects.

The agreements reached on the transport corridors Uzbekistan-Turkmenistan-Iran-Oman and Afghanistan-Turkmenistan-Azerbaijan-Georgia-Turkey will help to enhance cooperation within the regions and the continent.

Also, the highways that have already been built and are under construction in Turkmenistan, including the roads Ashgabat-Karakum-Dashoguz, Turkmenbashi-Ashgabat-Farab, are important in the development of road logistics.

The favorable geographical location of the country provides opportunities for creating a competitive transport macrostructure.
