Uzbekistan Road Network

Uzbekistan Roads

Uzbekistan's road system comprises 42,500 km of major highways and 183,000 km of other roads. It provides connections to all provinces, communities, and neighboring countries. The role of road transport in the national economy is increasing. Road network stretches all over republic and is fairly operating condition with several limitations in winter time, in mountain areas due to heavy snow or ice.

Road Class and Surface Conditions

Uzbekistan has a developed but inconsistently maintained traffic infrastructure. Although main roads in central Tashkent are relatively well maintained, many secondary roads inside and outside Tashkent, and particularly those in the Tien Shan Mountains, are in poor condition and may be passable only by four-wheel-drive vehicles. Driving at night can be quite dangerous because only the main roads in Tashkent and a few other major cities have streetlights; rural roads and highways generally are not lit. Visitors are strongly urged to avoid driving at night outside Tashkent. The gasoline supply can be sporadic; therefore, travelers should expect occasional difficulty finding gasoline, particularly outside Tashkent.
Livestock, as well as farm equipment and carts drawn by animals that lack lights or reflectors, are found on both urban and rural roads at any hour. Local drivers are not familiar with safe driving techniques. Pedestrians in cities and rural areas cross streets unexpectedly and often without looking for oncoming traffic. Uzbekistan has a large road police force, which frequently stops drivers for minor infractions or simple document checks. There have been reports of harassment of foreign drivers by the road police, with reported minor police corruption in the form of solicitation of bribes. Uzbekistan has a “zero tolerance” policy for driving under the influence of alcohol
