Which project do you mean Ruslan, the bridges near Azizbekov subway station? I don't have the pictures all of them, but there are 2 bridges finished and 5-6 bridges under construction. As for bridges and tunneles we made a great job during the last years. In 2-3 years we built around ten bridges, tonnels, underground and overground pedestrians in Baku.

Some pictures that i have:

Galandar I must say the quality of the Asphalt used in Baku's roads looks very high. In Russia many new roads use cheap ass Asphalt. Baku is really doing a nice job.

Bro Baku transport transport infrastructure is developing really good.

Roads and bridges: the biggest plus for Baku is the first concrete autobahn which is the second city-airport road. There are many bridges, tonnels and pedestrians under construction now. At the same time the works on the first city round road will be finished in autumn.

Terminals: they have recently opened the international bus terminal which is the biggest in CIS (i have posted pics). The works on the construction of Baku international sea port will start in summer. At the same time the recontruction of Baku railway station started one week ago

Buses: We buy new buses too mainly Daewoo and MAN. They promise to have only those new big city buses until the end of 2009.

Subway: 4 stations are under construction with the start of new 3-rd line for Baku subway.

Intelectual system of transport regulations: The building for this center is under construction. I will give detailed information about it in my next post.

P.S. The only thing is Airport that doesn't have much development now. There is International, Domestic and Cargo terminals. Some administrative buildings and Holiday Inn hotel. I hope they will expand it with new terminal. But it will be done only in case of a big number of new flights.

Intellectual Traffic Control System for Baku


The Ministry of Transport (MoT) of Azerbaijan is planning renewal of fleet of traffic-lights and bus stops within the framework of Intellectual Traffic Control System Project.

Sadraddin Mammadov, the head of the MoT Department of Transport Policy & Economy, says that the Ministry has negotiated with State Traffic Police Department about renewal of traffic-light fleet.

“In particular, we plan to buy and install around 150 new traffic-lights to ensure grave economy of power. If currently-applied traffic-lights consume 300 W of electricity, the new ones will do only 30 W,” Mammadov says.

Besides, fleet of bus stops will be renewed as well.

“We expect to install 450 bus stops to become part of the system. The new bus stop will have a display panel and system of information. They will allow controlling how drivers observe bus traffic schedule and optimize schedule preventing jams around stops,” Mammadov said.

Today Baku is numbering 300 bus stops, although many buses stop in any places on request of passengers.

Development of the project of intellectual traffic control system has been completed and is now being considered by specialists of the Ministry and supervisor company. Today system introduction is estimated at AZN 64 million. Nevertheless, construction of the Transport Intellectual Regulation Center, which is to be a core of the system, has been started. When the project is confirmed, we will start to create its peripheries.

The ceremony of laying the foundation of the Centre for Urban Transport Intellectual Regulation took place in Baku on 6 April, 2009 with participation of President Ilham Aliyev.

Completion of Centre’s construction is scheduled for May 2010 and creation of whole system for April 2011.

The project cost makes $62-63 million (without VAT), but if to take into account taxes $76 million. The Intellectual Traffic Control System being created in Azerbaijan will be the first on the CIS area. Introduction of such system is of great importance as it will allow creation of maximum favorable conditions for both pedestrians and urban transport.

In May 2008 the Ministry signed the contract with SK C & C Co. Ltd (South Korea) on creation of the Intellectual Road Traffic Regulation Center in Baku. The project has been prepared by the same company that also worked out the similar project for Seoul.

The Azerbaijan Ministry of Transport and South Korean Ministry of Construction & Transport signed the Memorandum on cooperation for creation of the Intellectual Road Traffic Regulation Center in Baku later last April.

The purpose of the Center is to tackle problems observed in Baku city transport. It will allow controlling bus traffic, regulate traffic, make decisions from one center as well as send operative information on road traffic, speed, stops, traffic accidents, jams and other events to a central dispatcher point. In future it will be introduced payment system via e-cards that will allow passengers to enjoy high-level passenger carriages. Thus, through post-terminals installed at bus and railway stations, airports and ports it will be possible to provide passengers and tourists with information on optimal routes by all transport means and choice of an optimal transfer between them as well as centralized ticket sales under the chosen route.

The Center will cover Baku city and may be expanded up to the whole Absheron Peninsula. Furthermore this system will be practised in other big azerbaijani cities like Ganca and Sumgayit.

Yeah exactly! I hope this financial crisis will not stop us. In any case of 570 constructions of 9 and more floors buildings in the capital Baku, only 20 stopped since the beginning of financial crisis. The rest are ongoing slower or faster.
