Kazakhstan Railways has tested a new mobile-diagnostics laboratory (MPK) for rail infrastructureon the 227 km long railway line between Astana and Borovoye. The special vehicle is manufactured in-house and is equipped with rail flaws and defects detection and video monitoring systems.

The vehicle is designed  to monitor and diagnose the condition of the railway track and will help Kazakhstan Railways to improve the quality of the railway track condition monitoring and to ensure the diagnostics accuracy.
