Railway tunnel to be constructed in Uzbekistan

The China Railway Tunnel Group will construct a tunnel worth $455 million on the Angren-Pap railway line, which will connect the Fergana Valley with other regions of Uzbekistan, a report of the National Information Agency of Uzbekistan (UzA) said.

According to the report, the State Joint Stock Railway Company (SSRC) Ozbekiston Temir Yollari (Uzbekistan Railways) and China Railway Tunnel Group concluded the contract on the construction of the transit tunnel in June 2013.

The project will be financed at the expenses of funds of the state budget, the Uzbek railway company's own funds and credits of the international financial institutes.

The length of the tunnel that will run under the Kamchik pass is 19 km. In addition to the main tunnel, through which railway communication will be carried out, the second tunnel will be constructed for the line's safety.

It was reported that the Angren-Pap railway line worth $1.9 billion, with a length of 129 km should run through the Kamchik pass and link the three oblasts (regions) in the east of the country - Andijan, Namangan and Fergana - with the remaining part of Uzbekistan. Construction of the road is scheduled to be completed in 2016. (Cihan/Trend az)
