In photos: road project aims to connect communities across Central Asia
CENTRAL ASIA -- The World Bank is working with governments in Central Asia on a programme to restore deteriorating road networks in hopes of better linking the Fergana Valley and connecting population centres and economic hubs across borders.
The area, divided among three countries -- Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan and Uzbekistan -- is home to more than 10 million people.
Phase 1 of the Central Asia Regional Links (CARs) programme started in Kyrgyzstan, and Phase 2 started in Tajikistan.
Once completed, the two phases of the CARs programme will help rebuild road networks linking the three Central Asian countries.
