Emphasizing that the Turkmen capital develops rapidly and the population grows, the President of Turkmenistan requested CA Interbudmontazh to consider the issue on construction of the metro in Ashgabat. The Ukrainian company already has working experience in Turkmenistan.
The issue of constructing a subway was raised in 2008 when the Ashgabat municipality invited companies from St. Petersburg.
All this is related to the fact that Ashgabat significantly increased its borders in 2013 to 375.54 square kilometers by attaching the Abadan and Rukhabad suburbs in accordance with the decision of Majlis (parliament).
Ashgabat is the largest administrative and political, transport, trade, scientific and cultural center of the country. Some 12 percent of the country’s population lived there as of early 2012. (Trend News Agency).
