At the meeting of the Government chaired by the Prime Minister Askar Mamin, the reports of the ministers of national economy, industry and infrastructure development, as well as akims some regions on the implementation of the Nurly Zhol State Program of Infrastructure Development were heard, reports the press service of the PM.

The first stage of the Nurly Zhol state program for 2015-2019 is to be completed in 2019. Mamin noted that the implementation of the program gave a powerful impetus to the development of transport and engineering infrastructure. During this period, 8 thousand km of roads, 3 thousand km of heat and water supply networks were reconstructed, the third North-South power line of 1,776 km was commissioned.

“The most important function of the program is to improve the quality of life of the population. Construction of new roads allows to reduce transport costs for businesses when transporting goods by at least 15%. This ultimately affects the cost and price for the consumer,” said Askar Mamin.

It should be noted that in 2018 alone more than 86 thousand jobs were created. In 2019 it is planned to create another 54 thousand jobs.

In addition, the implementation of the program gave impetus to the development of the country's transit potential. Last year alone, total transit revenue amounted to $1.5 billion. At the same time, in order to receive additional income from transit, in addition to the Astana-Shchuchinsk highway, 471 km of toll roads were introduced in 2019. Among them are Astana-Temirtau, Almaty-Kapchagai, Almaty-Khorgos roads. In 2020, 5.5 thousand toll roads will be launched.

The Prime Minister noted that an example of a significant and long-term positive effect on the economy is the implementation of the project Western Europe – Western China, in which 47 new industries and 73 service facilities were created. The average annual cumulative effect of the project is 200 billion tenge.

“The current final year of the program also has big plans. The reconstruction will cover 4.4 thousand km of republican roads and 5 thousand km of repair of local roads. It is necessary for all interested state agencies and akimats to mobilize to fulfill their plans,” said Askar Mamin.

The Ministry of Industry and Infrastructure Development was instructed to accelerate the development of the next stage of the Nurly Zhol 2020-2025 Program. This month it is necessary to present the concept of the program.
