The Agency "Turkmenawtoulaglary" plans to create an information base of local vehicles arriving from abroad and following transit, providing transport services both on the territory of Turkmenistan and on international routes. This was announced at a Government meeting by Deputy Prime Minister Bayramgeldi Ovezov, who oversees the transport complex.
GPS devices installed on transport will allow you to determine the geographical coordinates of moving cars. This data can then be used in various ways, for example, to track a route or determine its length.
The project is planned to be implemented gradually. At the first stage, digital tracking systems will be installed on passenger buses and passenger taxis plying in Ashgabat and velayats, which will allow monitoring their location, speed of movement and compliance with the traffic schedule, fuel consumption, time spent on technical operations, and so on.
At the second stage, digital tracking will be provided for cargo transport moving through the territory of Turkmenistan. At the third stage-domestic vehicles that carry out international transport, which will make it possible to control their movement and issue electronic permits to cross borders. An electronic road map and a centralized information base will also be created, which will include all information about incoming and next transit foreign vehicles.
The implementation of the project of JSC "Türkmentehnogurluşyk" of the Agency "Turkmenawtoulaglary" is planned until October 1, 2020, the state news Agency of Turkmenistan reports.
