Transport and infrastructure in Uzbekistan

Our listing of the primary kinds of transport compares the infrastructure of Uzbekistan with the average of all countries in Asia. The main traffic and transport routes are in good condition, but do not reach the level of the leading industrial nations.

In terms of the length of its rail network, Uzbekistan ranks 76th in the world with 0.14 meters per inhabitant. In total, the rail network is 4,642 kilometers long. Freight traffic on the rails most recently totaled 22.86 billion tons and kilometers traveled. Passenger traffic reached 4.33 billion passenger-kilometers in 2018.

Road traffic

The network of roads and highways has a total length of 86,496 km. For each of the country's 34.23 million inhabitants, this corresponds to 2.53 meters. This puts Uzbekistan in 159th place in the global ranking. However, the country's size and population density of around 77 inhabitants per km² must also be taken into account. Countries with fewer inhabitants on the same or even larger area naturally achieve quite different values here and have to connect remote areas to the transport network despite a smaller population.

With an average of 3561 traffic fatalities per year (2012 - 2019), road traffic in Uzbekistan is considered reasonably safe. This corresponds to around 4.3 accident fatalities per 11.2 inhabitants per year. By comparison, this figure is 5.9 in the European Union as a whole and 17.1 worldwide.

In Uzbekistan, traffic drives on the right-hand side of the road, i.e. people drive in the right-hand lane and overtake on the left. Oncoming traffic comes toward you on the left side. Here you can also find an overview of all countries with left-hand traffic.
