"Actual problems of development of Astana: Road transport infrastructure, reconstruction of riverbed of Yesil, the work of treatment facilities, storm water drain, heating main, Detour on August 2, 2016," Prime Minister of the Republic of Kazakhstan wrote on his Instagram.
The issue of development of road and transport infrastructure is one of the most pressing problem in the capital. There we have problematic issues such as increased fuel consumption by 1.3-1.5 times, and increased gas emissions by 2,5-3,5 times, moreover.
K. Massimov began detouring the capital from the area of reconstruction of Kenesary street. To solve the above problems it is necessary to build road infrastructure, 15 streets and avenues, 6 bridges, 19 road junctions and overpasses, 12 interceptor parking garages.
The Prime Minister also got acquainted with the progress of reconstruction of riverbed of Yesil River. The construction work must be completed in order to prevent the constant threat of flooding in urban areas.
An acute problem in the capital is the question of treatment facilities, which worsened after heavy torrential rains in July. The capacity of the treatment plants didn’t protect from water in a timely manner. Thus, a number of streets in the capital were flooded. Construction of sewage treatment plants will solve the problem, the work is scheduled for completion in 2018.
Development of the storm sewer system will also prevent the streets of the capital from flooding. On the territory of Astana there are 10 storm water facilities, including 8 sewage disposal facilities.
The city administration of Astana has developed an action plan for development of storm sewer system until 2019 with a phased implementation of projects related to the flooding of the territory of the international exhibition EXPO-2017 and the central streets of the right-bank part of the city.
