Construction workers building a hippodrome in Turkmenabad have not received their salaries for two months

Correspondents of “Chronicles of Turkmenistan” report that the reсonstruction of the hippodrome is underway and the builders are working in two shifts.

The construction works need to be completed by the Day of the Turkmen Horse, which is celebrated on last Sunday of April.

The regional office of Turkmenistan’s Ministry of Construction and Architecture is responsible for completion of the construction object, which has not been paying construction workers for the past two months.

– The month is drawing to a close but we have been paid for February or March. Our monthly salary is only 1000 manats and our supervisor gets bit more, – one of the workers said.

The hippodrome, which is designed to accommodate 3000 seats, is located in the southern district of the city. The construction works were inspected by President Gurbanguly Berdymukhammedov during his visit to Lebap velayat on 21 February, 2020.
