Uzbekistan to attract foreign investments in answer to transport challenges
Baku, Azerbaijan, March 9
By Fikret Dolukhanov – Trend:
The administration of the Uzbek capital plans to build 20 multi-storey car parkings and, for that purpose, wants to attract foreign, including South Korean, investments, Deputy Head of the Tashkent City Administration Alisher Tilyayev said during the joint Uzbek—South Korean business forum on March 9.
Earlier, Tilyayev also said that the city administration is interested in cooperation with the South Korean partners in construction of affordable housing, private kindergartens, multi-storey parkings, as well as new hotels and city parks. Tashkent also invites the businessmen to participate in improvement of municipal services and public transport management systems.
According to the Uzbek agency Sputnik, the transport situation in the city center is very difficult due to the parkings lack, caused by the absence of a parking construction program in Tashkent for the last 26 years, while a number of cars have been steadily growing.
In 2017, the city authorities launched complex measures for 2017—2021 on regulating car parking places. Particularly, modern multi-storey parkings and free open car stops were planned to be constructed.
For that purpose, the city administration developed special models of parkings, consisting of two, three and six storeys. Two-storey parking had to be designed for 80 cars, three-storey – for 144 cars and six-storey parkings – for 532 cars.
Tashkent Central Internal Affairs Directorate launched partial dismounting of parking prohibition signs in the city center, announcing that more than 100 signs had been already dismounted.
