Are there any roads that could be classified as motorways? Those highways look terrible indeed.

Almaty has some nice freeways, but they should invest to road markings a bit.

ADB granted Kazakhstan $700 mln loan to build "new Silk Road"

The Asian Development Bank (ADB) said Thursday that it is extending 700 million U.S. dollars to Kazakhstan to help build a "new Silk Road" that will transform the country's economy.

The "Central Asian Regional Economic Cooperation Transport Corridor I" will run 2,715 kilometers, from the city of Khorgos on Kazakhstan's border with China to the western border with Russia, the Manila-based lender said in a statement.

"This new silk road will boost trade between Beijing and Brussels, and create extraordinary economic opportunities for the people of Kazakhstan and their neighbors," said Juan Miranda, Director General of ADB's Central and West Asia Department.

The northern branch of the ancient Silk Road ran through today's Kazakhstan, placing the region at the heart of trade between China and Europe, and bringing the region immense prosperity.

The new road, spanning the world's largest landlocked country, is expected to be comparably transformative.

By 2020, the road is expected to increase Kazakhstan's gross domestic product (GDP) by 68 percent above the 2010 baseline, and to increase the GDP of neighboring Central Asian countries by 43 percent.

China, Russia, and the European Union (EU) will also reap significant gains from the road project, ADB said.

"This road, combined with wide reaching reforms the government has already initiated in the transport and communication sectors, will provide families in Kazakhstan with greater opportunities for advancement, while significantly contributing to the nation's sustainable economic development," Miranda said.

In Kazakhstan, roads play an important role in providing access to rural areas, and facilitating transit traffic and in-country transport movement.

However, the Kazakh road sector has experienced long-standing operational and institutional constraints that raise the cost of doing business. The road network is incomplete, many sections of road need repair, travel times are long, and cumbersome cross-border procedures increase the burden on trade and traders.

These constraints have led to higher-than-average transport costs, hampered regional cooperation and integration opportunities, and impeded Kazakhstan's competitiveness.

The improved road will increase travel speed 40 percent by 2015,while reducing freight transport costs by half, ADB said. It will also shorten travel distances, improve road safety standards and lead to a decline in accident rates.

ADB will partner with the Islamic Development Bank and the Japan International Cooperation Agency to handle a 480-kilometer section of the road network in the southern part of Kazakhstan.

The overall investment for the road project is approximately 6.7 billion dollars. Other financiers behind the overall corridor development plan include the government of Kazakhstan, the private sector, the World Bank, and European Bank for Reconstruction and Development.

Kazakhstan is a vast country, with huge distances across areas that are unpopulated. As long as the most important transitroutes are in good condition it is okay. You can't expect a local road hundreds of kilometers from the nearest city to be in excellent condition considering the Kazakhstani weather conditions.
