[KS] Kyrgyzstan | road infrastructure • автомагистралдар

flag:




Kyrgyzstan is a mountainous country in Central Asia, sometimes dubbed as the Switzerland of Central Asia due to it's natural beauty. The Jengish Chokusu is the highest mountain at 7.439 meters. The country, however, is generally poor with an underdeveloped infrastructure. The population is around 5.5 million on almost 200,000 km²

Some pics I found on Google Earth:

There is one cloverleaf in Kyrgyzstan to my knowledge; in the Bishkek bypass

Which looks like this by the way.

Those roads could use some work. I didn't realise that Kyrgyz roads would be so wide, though. Good finds, Chris.

I'm not sure either. However, the only time I have seen pics of Kyrgyzstani trucks (in Poland), they had KGZ ovals.

I think so too, Wikipedia, worldlicenseplates and UNECE all show the KS code.

Weird why KGZ would be used then...

I've seen many times trucks from Kyrgyzstan with KGZ oval, so I think KS is not the official...

Correct. After the collapse of the USSR the Kyrgyz people used KGZ, after 1992 it was officialy changed to KS, however KGZ is still in use on (older) trucks and buses.

I really like the mountains in those pictures.
The RHD cars come From SE Asia (mainly Japan; they export most of the SH cars). They were quite affordable, I must say.

The road Bishkek - Osh crosses the pass at about 3500m altitude. Noteworthy that they struggle to keep it open even during the winter, being the only terrestrial route between the main cities of the country.
