The construction of the road began in 2016 on the initiative of the Prime Minister Temir Sariev. A distinctive feature was a full financing of the project from the budget. A scandal broke out over the choice of the contractor. As a result, Zamirbek Aidarov, Minister of Transport and Roads, and Temir Sariev, head of the Cabinet itself, lost their posts.
