Chartak | Uzbekistan


Project Implementation Unit of the Ministry of Investments and Foreign Trade of the Republic of Uzbekistan

The Chartaksay river connects the Old Bazaar in downtown Chartak up in the north and ends lose to the rural village of Korabog. It constitutes the identity of the valley, as it is the main resource for agriculture production and is a fountain of health with its thermal waters. With the Eco-Trail we make use of the beauty of the natural assets and create a recreational path as a 11 km long linear park that interlaces with the DNA of the river and its unique surrounding area. The Eco-Trail brings the river back to the people and makes the river interact with humans and gives new opportunities for eco-tourism and local economic development.

The design is characterized by an elegant path – on both sides of the river – with different attractors and materials and several pedestrian bridges that constitute those design elements that create an interaction between people and nature on both sides of the river. The Eco-Trail design has 4 main components:

  • The Main Path that switches sides strategically,
  • A Complementary Path on the respective other side of the river as an alternative route,
  • The Bridges as connectors and facilitators of new connections and
  • The Design Modules with the eco-trail furniture and activation tools.

The materials used for the Eco-Trail is from locally produced asphalt for the trail surfaces, concrete for bridges, seating etc and applied wooden surfaces to concrete structure. Concrete is the basic material for all modules, the wooden surface gives the design a warm tone and soft surface that connects with people and create identity.
