The Chairman of Dushanbe Rustam Emomali expressed dissatisfaction with the delay in the timing of some road construction works, the use of low-quality materials, and the existence of potholes.

He instructed the responsible persons to correct the shortcomings and put the roads into operation in accordance with modern standards within the established time.

He noted that the reconstruction and bringing the infrastructure of the capital in line with the modern requirements are an important basis for the development of the city.

“Over the past five years, 162 kilometers of roads have been renovated in the capital, 7.7 kilometers of which were renovated this past year. In order to prevent mudflow to the streets and avenues of the city, the authorities have built and put into operation 16 km of mudflow networks so far,” Rustam Emomali added.

Also, in order to support the road construction industry, equipment was purchased for the production of high-quality asphalt with the capacity of 160 tonnes per hour and crushing equipment with a capacity of 140 tonnes per hour in the amount of 16 million somoni, which will be put into operation this year. This year, 110 laboratory units will be imported from Italy to test road building materials. All these measures are aimed at improving the quality of roads.

During the discussion of the problems of the transport industry of the capital, the Chairman of Dushanbe noted that last year 280 million passengers were transported by all modes of transport, which is 14% more than in the same period last year. Over the past five years, the city’s passenger transport facilities have been completely modernized. In total, over the past five years, 578 vehicles have been purchased at the expense of budgetary funds, including 474 modern buses and 104 modern wireless trolley buses.

In order to reconstruct the communal park, within the framework of cooperation with China, an agreement was signed on the import of 466 units of municipal transport as technical assistance in the amount of 415 million somoni. Last year, 413 units of municipal transport were imported into the capital. The remaining 53 units will be imported this year.

Rustam Emomali gave specific instructions to the branch deputy and other relevant structures to further improve the provision of passenger services to residents and guests of the capital.
