M37

A new six-lane M37 was built in 2012 near the city of Balkanabat in western Turkmenistan. It begins southeast of Balkanabat (as far as Google Earth imagery tells) and stretches to the city of Dzhebel. It's a new alignment, but no grade-separation except for a railway crossing. It's about 30 kilometers long.

There is a new bypass under construction around the eastern city of Türkmenabat. There does not seem to be any construction of a bridge across the Amu-Darya River yet.

Ashgabat

New infrastructure in southern Ashgabat. They opened this in the last 18 months or so. I wonder what it will all serve, there's mostly undeveloped steppe.






Also, this area in western Ashgabat saw some new roads over the last couple of years.

My suggestion for a Mashhad-Esghabad (Ashgabat) Freeway

Blue: Current Route: 230 Km - 2:53 travel time
Red: suggested Freeway - 186 Km - 1:40 travel time

There is already an expressway from Mashhad to Quchan, the rest is mountainous area.

From my point of view it would be nice to have a good connection from the M37 (from Samarkand) to Sabzevar (in the lower left corner) where the expressway to Teheran begins.

Sabzevar is the the most distant (or the furthest easterly) location you can drive to from Europe by using predominantly expressways!

Connection to Mashhad connects the city with an industrial and consumer centre and from Mashhad to Tehran, the expressway is planned to be upgraded to freeway standards all the way and also Mashhad is the gateway fro Turkmenistan towards south to Chabahar, which is the closest port to international waters. and it would act as a shortcut to Harat in Afghanistan.

Weird for a such poor and sparsely populated country to have such impressive infrastructures. It looks like North Korea.

There are many similarities, like the old dictator of Turkmenistan legally changing the names of the months of the year to the names of his family But, there is gas and oil in the country!

Wow. That is just obscene. Turkmenistan has a GDP per capita lower than Bulgaria or Belarus, yet they waste all they have building that megalomaniac nonsense. Only North Korea comes close to that madness.

Silly comparison. Do not mix politics with construction. Do not count else's moneys. Be envious silence.
