"140 kilometers of roads have been built, 87.3 kilometers were reconstructed, 76.2 kilometers of roads in residential areas, 4 bridges and overpasses, 3 junctions were constructed in this period in the capital. To date, road network of the city consists of 944 streets with a total length 902 kilometers, 324 kilometers of which are not asphalted,” R. Amanzhulov added.

Speaking at the enlarged meeting of the Government on October 11, President of Kazakhstan Nursultan Nazarbayev noted the poor work to reduce the cost of capital expenditures and improve quality through the introduction of new technologies. As a result, the newly constructed roads need of repair within a year after the start of operation.

R. Amanzhulov has dwell on the reasons for poor quality of roads in Astana.

"The major part of the right bank’s roads has been built during the Soviet era and require reconstruction with complete replacement of the base of the pavement and utilities because of the frequent gusts.

The main problems, associated with the destruction of the roadway, arise due to  the quality of asphalt, manufactured in Astana. It does not meet the climatic conditions of the area," R. Amanzhulov informed.
