I guess this thread is supposed to be about objective information about roads and highways in Turkmenistan. Then a litttle info on fuel prices and public benefits is OK, if it helps to inform what kind of standard roads should have (how many vehicles and what type would be expected to be on the roads).

But this isn't the only sub-thread prone to some political jibber-jabber...

This thread derailed because it already started off the track, with the only content being showoff pictures posted by some government-payed forumers. There's little actual information to be expected from such a country, it's like North Korea, so I somehow feel we should know that all these pictures of beautiful, SimCity-like housing and roads are propaganda bullsh*t.

My understanding is that these buildings/roads are located within a small radius and are the "entry" into the country.

As somebody wrote elsewhere, maybe there are parts of the city that the government does not allow people to go into. Just like any dictatorship would do.

PS. An interesting fact about "freedom" is the name change of the months.

Gigantic roads built for no-one... Still, Ashgabat seems to be the cleanest and best maintained city in the ex-USSR, along with some Kazakh cities. As it's said of course, we haven't seen pictures outside these UFO-building zones. While this theme was put up: why is there still a cult of Saparmurat Nijazov ("Turkmenbashy") going on? Isn't it time to change the name of that city, for example? I bet many Turkmens want "back to the USSR".

Out on the west coast is a place called Avaza where some pick a number amount has been spent building a resort separated from the rest of the country by a canal. That resort can been seen here

http://binged.it/11p5uJq

The big problem is that around 10km North East is this

http://binged.it/11p5Csd

a filthy petrochemical complex left behind by the Russians in 1990 and not cleaned up since.

and 5 km North east of that again is

http://binged.it/11OMzbM

Turkmenbashi International Airport built to service this resort (it is named Avaza) and which airport has no international flights many many years later, although someone finally announced some recently.

Persons thinking of flying in for a holiday would be advised to bone up on the regular oil spills emanating from derelict or semi derelict oil rigs and whose product ends up regularly on the beach in Avaza



The Chronicles of Turkmenistan have an excellent page on that story.

and more information is available on various 'infrastructure' if you go to the Chronicles of Turkmenistan main website here

Links that you lead it as an example, this West-paid enemies of the Turkmen peoples. They are not an authoritative source. Even if there is industrial development, it is the NATIONAL tourist area, not INTERnational. Since 2012 there are Turkmenbashi flight to Istanbul by Turkmenistan Airlines. Turkmen nation go there for a vacation since Soviet times. No more desire to argue with you on the subject of politics.

Russian adage: "Blind not show, deaf people do not tell, moron not prove", I do not know whether the translation.

Please, that kind of rhetoric is not going to get you any respect. Also: stick to roads, this thread is not about wind surfing or tunnel slides.

Photographs from the polluted area around Turkmenbashi port 10 km away from Avaza.

In MOST countries this is called "balance"

This photo is a fake. Turkmen coast of the Caspian Sea is the cleanest than other 4 countries (RUS, KAZ, AZE, IRN).

Other photos, this a cemetery of Soviet ships. Google maps you can see, they're gone for scrap. Turkmenistan buy the newest ships in Russia, Turkey and Croatia. And constructed in the same own ships.

Are Turkmen and Turkish languages mutually understandable?

I personally understand the language of the brotherly people of Turkey and Azerbaijan. Our languages belongs to the Oghuz languages. Yet every Turkmen speaks Russian and some English.

The road to Balkanabat, even if the asphalt is of good quality, is unmarked.
