"Today, in the course of a nationwide teleconference, one of the important projects for our region has been commissioned - the highway "Shetpe-Aktau". This is one of the 25 projects that President Nursultan Nazarbayev launched. Therefore, I want to express my gratitude to all people who are involved in the implementation of this project. And now, in the continuation of the work, we begin the reconstruction of another road - "Zhetybai-Zhanaozen".
And this is not just a question of construction, but first of all the safety of people. Now the number of road accidents decreased significantly between Aktau and the village of Zhetybai, between Zhetybay and Shetpe. Because the quality of road construction is directly related to ensuring the safety of movement. Also, new, high-quality roads will contribute to the development of small and medium-sized businesses. I would like to note that the construction of the autopilot provided work for 600 people in the region. And a particularly important point is that the construction of new roads in our region contributes to the implementation of a large project - the construction of the highway "Western Europe - Western China", " - said Akim Eraly Tugzhanov at the opening ceremony.
The project's customer is the Committee of Roads of the Ministry of Investments and Development of the Republic of Kazakhstan.
