Realization of Uzbek nation’s creative potential


On 25 March 2017, President of the Republic of Uzbekistan Shavkat Mirziyoyev inspected construction work being carried out in the capital Tashkent. 

Every year of independence is recorded in history as a golden year of great construction work and comprehensive development in this country. The beautiful capital city of Tashkent, while maintaining its historical attractiveness, is developing consistently according to a far-sighted project of modernization and is turning into a modern megalopolis. Grand buildings, apartment houses, social facilities, roads and overpasses, beautiful gardens and parks are being created. 

The Head of State inspected an overpass built at the intersection of Bunyodkor Street and Muqimiy Street in the capital city’s Chilonzor District. 

The overpass is 900 metres long, 6 metres high and 24 metres wide, and it has 6 lanes. It creates many conveniences for drivers and pedestrians. 

The number of motor vehicles in the country, including in its capital city, is rising. This is indicative of growing prosperity in the country and rising living standards. The purpose of large-scale reforms is also to raise the living standards of the population. 

Traffic jams at the intersection of Bunyodkor and Muqimiy streets had created inconveniences for people. The newly-built overpass solves these problems and also is of special importance to traffic safety and continuity. 

This overpass was built over a period of two months by builders of the Koprik Qurilish Tresti unitary enterprise belonging to the Ozbekiston Temir Yollari (Uzbekistan railways) joint-stock company. An above-ground roofed pedestrian crossing has also been built there. 

Overpasses play a big role in cities. They are also significant from the viewpoint of ecology as they ease the problem of traffic congestion. 

The President emphasized the new overpass’s significance and said that such construction work created more conveniences for the population.
