Kazakhstan, Astana, June 5 / Trend D.Mukhtarov /
The Majilis (lower chamber of parliament) of Kazakhstan adopted in the first reading a draft law on the reform of the road sector, the press service of the Majilis reported.
'The adoption of the innovations will allow the opening toll roads. Revenue received will be spent on maintenance and repair of the highways', the statement says.
In case of recoupment, collected assets can over time be spent for the construction and, or, reconstruction of new toll roads which will reduce the respective costs for the state.
'It is stipulated to transfer all roads of national importance to the maintenance of a specially created joint-stock company with 100 per cent state participation in the authorised capital. It will be called the National Operator for Republican Roads Management', the statement says.
