New road and overpass opened in Tashkent city
Tashkent, Uzbekistan (UzDaily.com) - The President of Uzbekistan Shavkat Mirziyoyev inspected a new road built in Yakkasaray and Sergeli districts of Tashkent.
The economy and population of the capital are growing. In recent years, the number of private cars has increased 2-3 times, more than 700-800 thousand cars drive along the city streets every day, more than half a million people come and go to the capital. All this dictates the need for the development of road infrastructure, taking into account these factors and trends.
The construction of an additional road connecting Sergeli with Yakkasaray district has been asking for a long time. This project is being implemented in two stages. To date, the construction of a two-kilometer road from Chuponota Street to the Tashkent Ring Road has been completed. A 788-meter overpass and two 207-meter interchanges at the junction with the Tashkent Ring Road have been built across the Small Ring Road.
Today these transport facilities have been commissioned.
The new road and overpasses are designed to make traffic much easier. Firstly, the new street will intersect with the largest transport arteries of Tashkent - the small and large ring roads. Secondly, the interchanges are designed so that it is convenient for vehicles to enter and exit the bridge without traffic lights and U-turns, without interfering with traffic in other sections.
Currently, active work is underway in the framework of the second phase of the project. A road is being built with a length of more than 4 kilometers from the Moscow Ring Road to Kipchak Street.
In total, these six lane roads and overpasses will have a capacity of up to 12 thousand vehicles per hour. Thus, the travel time from = Sergeli district to the city center will be 20 minutes instead of the previous 40-50 minutes. The load on Yangi Sergeli Street will be halved.
There was also a demonstration of special equipment, which is planned to be used in road construction, landscaping and public utilities.
