Efficient transport sector is the paramount component of the economic development. The key strategic task of the transport policy shall become the forming of the transport system of Uzbekistan to the effect that it would be possible to ensure the relative decrease of the costs for transportation services, increase of operational efficiency, reliability and availability of transportation services for the economic entities, diversity of transport routes and become the connecting link in transcontinental and regional logistics schemes.

After independence the country faced the task of the early reformatting of the space frame of the country through formation of new main traffic arteries, which could “draw together” the space/regions of the country by the new transport “clamps” and lower dependence of Uzbekistan on the transport corridors in the Northern direction.

Currently implemented projects of reconstruction of the National highway and construction of the electrified railway line Angren – Pap are the logical continuation of the policy on re-formatting/drawing together of the space frame of the country.
