Transport and environment

image of Transport and environment

Tajikistan is a landlocked country in Central Asia. More than 90 per cent of its territory is mountainous. The landscape puts severe restrictions on the development and use of railways and aviation for domestic transportation. Road transport is also subject to limitations imposed by unfavourable natural conditions. Many highways and mountain passes are closed for the winter period (from December to May), in view of snowfalls and avalanches. Significant daily and seasonal temperature amplitudes, flash floods, mudflows, rockslides and rockfalls lead to the rapid deterioration and destruction of road infrastructure.
