The Prime Minister of Kazakhstan Karim Masimov assessed the progress of construction of a bridge across the Irtysh River during his working trip to Pavlodar region.

Construction of the project is carried out within the "Nurly Zhol" program. Commissioning is scheduled for December this year.

The project envisages construction of the largest bridge in Central Asia, including  3 bridges over the Irtysh River Irtysh and old lake Shchuchye. The bridge will be part of the route "Center - East" in the direction Astana - Pavlodar - Ust-Kamenogorsk and will connect the central part of Kazakhstan with the east of the republic and neighboring regions of Russia. The transition will relieve the street and road network of Pavlodar and direct transit traffic to the east and in the opposite direction to bypass the city.
