President of Kazakhstan Kassym-Jomart Tokayev gave the corresponding order to the government during his meeting with the public of the Karaganda region.
"Karaganda region is located in the very center of the country. The main route connection South and North of the country go through this region. Obviously, the quality of automobile roads has a special impact on the development of the region. Currently, Center-South Corridor is being created.

I also instruct to repair the Karaganda-Karkaralinsk highway. All work must be completed within two years. This will increase the tourism potential of Karkaralinsk,” Tokayev added.
