Ashgabat, Turkmenistan, Aug. 30
By Huseyn Hasanov – Trend:
Ukraine’s Interbudmontazh Construction Association offers Turkmenistan new large projects, Trend reports referring to the Neutral Turkmenistan newspaper.
Head of the local representative office of Interbudmontazh Alexander Kokun recalled that his company has already completed a number of major projects for Ashgabat including a drainage and communication tunnel and a complex of treatment facilities.
Currently, Interbudmontazh offers to implement three additional major projects. One of them is a project for the construction of a full-fledged linear subway. One of its branches will connect the Parahat-8 (Mir-8) microdistrict, bus and railway stations and the airport, and will stretch to the area of the new “Ashgabat City” project. Another branch will stretch from east to west from the city of Anew to the western part of the Turkmen capital, the information reads.
The second project involves the creation of a storm collector system along the existing hydropark in the city center along Kemine Street, which will allow all rainwater to be diverted outside the city.
The third project involves the creation of a mudflow protection complex along the foothills of Mount Kopetdag.
At a meeting with the chairman of Interbudmontazh Vladimir Petruk in 2014, the President of Turkmenistan Gurbanguly Berdimuhamedov advised to consider the issue of construction of a subway in Ashgabat. In 2008, Ashgabat City Hall discussed the matter with companies from Russia’s St. Petersburg.
In 2018, the population of Ashgabat exceeded one million people due to the territorial expansion of the borders of Ashgabat. According to the 1995 census, the city’s population stood at 604,700 people.
