Ashgabat, Turkmenistan, July 8
By Huseyn Hasanov - Trend:
Turkish company Nata Inshaat Turizm Tashimacilik Ticaret ve Sanayi Anonim Shirketi will build railway bridges in Turkmenistan.
Turkmen Railway Transport Ministry was granted permit to sign a contract with the Turkish company for designing and building two railway bridges along the Bereket-Etrek stretch of the Gyzylgaya-Bereket-Etrek railway, according to a decree by the Turkmen president.
The document was signed in order to further develop the domestic railway industry, and to ensure safe train movement.
The document included an order to launch construction in July 2014 and commission the railway bridges in December 2014.
This project is being implemented as part of an agreement signed by Turkmenistan, Iran and Kazakhstan in 2007 for constructing the 'North-South' railway.
The railways were linked on the Kazakh-Turkmen border in May 2013.
