To properly organize the operation of the State Agency for Roads Construction Management, the President of Turkmenistan signed a Decree approving the Central Office Organizational Chart of the aforementioned State Agency.
To recap, at the working meeting on January 24 of this year, President Gurbanguly Berdimuhamedov separately touched upon the topic of road construction in Turkmenistan. Prosecutor General Batyr Atdayev informed that the investigation showed that due to the transfer of road construction equipment to the jurisdiction of the local administrations, the level of road construction decreased countrywide, the equipment is not used at full capacity and lack of spare parts. This makes a negative impact on the proper maintenance of roads and the construction of new ones in the country.
