At the government session chaired by Prime Minister Askar Mamin, issues of development of road transport infrastructure were considered.
Minister of Industry and Infrastructure Development Beibut Atamkulov, akims of the Kyzylorda region Gulshara Abdykalikova, Karaganda region — Zhenis Kassymbek, Mangystau region — Serikbay Trumov, and Pavlodar region — Abylkair Skakov presented their reports.
In the pre-election program of the Nur Otan party, ambitious tasks have been set for the reconstruction of 12 thousand km of roads by 2025 and the repair of 27 thousand km of the local road network.
This year, it is necessary to complete large projects for the reconstruction, repair and construction of motorways with a total length of 6 thousand km with the opening of traffic for 1.2 thousand km.
Such large projects as Taldykorgan - Ust-Kamenogorsk (768 km), Karaganda - Balkhash - Kapshagai (645 km), Kalbatau - Maykapshagai (415 km) and others will be implemented. The project for the reconstruction of the Kyzylorda - Zhezkazgan road will begin. Akimats are planning to work on 2.6 thousand km of local highways. It is planned to build 125 new roadside service facilities.
The Head of Government instructed the Ministry of Industry and Infrastructure Development, together with the akimats and JS NC KazAvtoZhol, to ensure the timely commissioning of the planned projects and to ensure the full use of the allocated funds by the end of this year.
The Ministry of Energy has been instructed to meet the declared demand for bitumen for all road projects while preventing price increases during the height of the construction season.
The prime minister emphasized the need to complete by the end of this year the works on the transfer of highways to self-sufficiency with the introduction of toll charges into industrial operation on the reconstructed sections, which will make it possible to keep the roads in good condition.
Akimats of the regions, together with NCE Atameken, were instructed to intensify work on the modernization of roadside service facilities and bringing them to the National Standard.
“The effectiveness of the implementation of the tasks set is of paramount importance. All planned activities should be completed in due time,” Mamin said.
