Asian Development Bank’s road project in Azerbaijan extended by a year

The Government of Azerbaijan and the Asian Development Bank (ADB) have managed to prevent a stop in the process of implementation of a project within the road program of ADB Multi-Tranche Financing (MFF) for the country.

The Baku-based ADB resident office informs that the project, period of which formally expired on 30 June was extended by another year.

“The formal request for the extension of a project on reconstruction of Masalli-Astara part of Alat-Astara highway, directed by the Azerbaijan Cabinet Ministers to the ADB management turned out sufficient for that.

Signing of any special agreements on this project is not required,” the ADB office said.

The government bolstered its inquiry with a report on full implementation of the project on the first section of this highway. The ADB mission that visited the country was satisfied with the done works and the report itself.

Non-standard character of the Bank’s mission was in its saving objective.

Collision has arisen because the Ministry of Transport wrote the term of implementation of the project as 2 years instead of 4-5 years offered by the Bank. At that, construction works have not been commenced so far over protests of the public concerning discrimination when repurchasing lands for the project route.

Besides repurchase of lands for Masalli–Astara highway reconstruction, it was also raised the issue concerning selection of the construction contractor.

Earlier, the Azerbaijani government was not inclined to dramatize the situation round the project of reconstruction of highway Alat-Astara, financed jointly by the government, World Bank (WB) and ADB and almost stopped over numerous protests of the public. In the government’s opinion, it was possible to resolve the problem easily and did not require any additional efforts. However, all turned out to be different in reality.

The Ministry of Transport conducted a contest on works in the first segment of ADB highway section. But the Bank is still unaware of the winner, that is, at present the Bank does not know whom to finance.

Alat-Astara highway is part of highway via route Baku – the border with Iran, length of which is 313 km. Total cost of the Alat-Astara road reconstruction is $400 million. In fiscal year 2008, WB funded $120 million for its reconstruction out of the $200 million credit for development of country’s main highways.

ADB allocated $200 million for financing a 59 km Masalli-Astara segment to run via new route, local roads in the region of project coverage, organization of motor parking along the highway, support and increase of potential of highway network management.

The bank finances $190 million of its ordinary capital resources (OCR) and $10 million from the ADF concessional resources. By present time, no more than 1.5% of whole loan has been spent. The funds were spent on payment of services of the consultants.

Rural roads to be upgraded next - Ilham Aliyev



President Ilham Aliyev has spoken about the importance of good roads for Azerbaijan's overall development.

He was addressing members of the public yesterday after opening a 23-km section of road connecting Samur and Hazra near the Russian border in northeastern Azerbaijan.

"A year ago I signed a decree on the construction of this road. The president's reserve fund is allocating resources to cover the construction cost. We are doing this after numerous requests from Gusar residents and the high quality road has already been constructed," the president said.

"The road will serve 16,000 people and connect 27 settlements and villages. This will be convenient. Photographs show the state of the previous road - it cannot even be called a road - people had real problems there. Now this wonderful road will serve people for years and decades."

New and extended roads were a major feature of the president's day yesterday. He opened a bridge and ring road around the town of Shabran, formerly Devechi, on the highway between Baku, Guba and the Russian border and opened a 34-km section of the same road further north.

"Our road construction work covers not only highways but also rural roads. In the coming years the construction of rural roads will be more intensive because the construction of almost all the highways is continuing successfully," the president said. "A section of the Baku - Guba highway has been commissioned today. This is a high quality road. The construction of roads along other routes - Baku to the Russian border, Baku to the Georgian border, Baku to the Iranian border - must end this year or next. As for rural roads, there is a great need for their construction. Road construction will continue in the remote areas and villages. People in all Azerbaijani regions should have good roads.

"Roads represent development and culture. Development is possible where there is culture. Gusar and its neighbouring districts have great tourism potential. We can use all these opportunities more effectively where there is a road. As you know, Gusar has enjoyed rapid development in recent years. I am satisfied with the rate of development. Economic development, the creation of industrial and tourism enterprises - work in all these spheres - is done on a high level. In the past five to six years, 17 schools have been built and several others refurbished. A big hospital is under construction."

The president went on to consider tourism and overall development in Azerbaijan.

"The autumn-winter tourism complex Gusar-Shahdag, which will be Azerbaijan's top tourist facility, is under construction. Today I will have another look at the construction work. Thousands of new jobs will be created through this complex; major investment will be made in the economy of the region to ensure the long-term and successful development of Gusar District.

"This work is going to plan. The attention to the economic development of the country, measures to improve living conditions, social programs, salary, pensions, construction of industrial enterprises and tourism centres all pursue one goal - to ensure the prosperity of Azerbaijani citizens, to promote the highest standards in every part of the country and ensure our comprehensive development. The regions are developing, the capital city is developing, regional centres are improving and being modernized - this is development!

"This is my fifth trip to Gusar as president. I am happy with the innovations and development I see here during each visit. I congratulate you on all these achievements. The construction of the road was entrusted to the executive authorities of the region and I can see that good-quality, tasteful work has been done. Additional funds will certainly be allocated to the construction of other rural roads. The Azerbaijani state is strong. We have a strong economy and big financial capacities. All these opportunities are designed to develop the Azerbaijani people and our regions. I congratulate you on this wonderful event once again."

As we can see there is huge investments in road and highway contruction in Azerbaijan. The first Baku ring road will be opened until the end of this year, at the same time construction of the left parts of the main highways is going on and will be completed until the end of 2011.

P.S. Please take into consideration that Azerbaijan had the worst roads and no highways among the countries of South Caucasus during the Soviet era.

The signs are easy enough to figure out. After all, they are fairly standard European signs. The construction signs indicating a contra - flow setup are unique. Haven't seen those used elsewhere.

In the Əlavə məlumat nişanları (lövhəcikləri) section, I believe that these are supplementary signs that might appear under the "Other Dangers" sign, or may be supplementary to construction signs.

Now it's starting to get interesting... I think I can figure out some of the signs in the Yol nişanları list, but others, I'm clueless.

1: Use of cab marker lights req'd
2: Use of safety beacon light req'd
3: I think that's either "Winter tyres /or chains req'd
4: School children/children playing
5: No vehicles over 24m long
6: ???? Variant of “Slow Moving Vehicle?
7: This one is rather obvious. Nationality logo/decal for Azerbaijan
8: ????
9: ????
10: Handicapped/Disabled persons
11: First Aid Post/Hospital
12: ????
13: Used at tunnel portals, bridges and so forth. May also be used on Dimensional Loads.
14: ????

Yol isl?rind? istifad? olunan isar?l?r is easy. It’s all roadworks signs, except for the last one. The last one is attached to any overhead line. It makes it easier for dump truck, end excavator operators to see.

The last one is all pavement markings and thus is pretty much self explanatory.
