President of Uzbekistan Shavkat Mirziyoyev visited the new transport infrastructure facilities in Tashkent.
On October 19, President of the Republic of Uzbekistan Shavkat Mirziyoyev visited the newly built road and road interchanges in Sergeli and Yakkasaray districts of Tashkent, the press office of the President of Uzbekistan reported.
The new road and road interchanges were built at the first stage of construction of the highway connecting Sergeli and Yakkasaray districts. A 2-kilometre highway section from Choponata Street to the city ring road, 788 metres of the highway across the Small ring road and 2 road interchanges have been built.
The new road and road interchanges will relieve traffic congestion in this district of the city, as the new transport artery crosses the longest highways in the capital – the Small and Big ring roads. The road interchanges will make it much easier to drive onto and off the bridge, without interfering with other road users and causing delays at traffic lights.
The modernisation of transport infrastructure in Sergeli and Yakkasaray districts is ongoing: a highway from TKAD to Kipchak Street is being built. The new roads have the throughput capacity of up to 12,000 cars per hour, which will significantly reduce travel time from Sergeli district to the centre of Tashkent – from 40-50 to 20 minutes.
