G. Berdimuhamedov ordered to use “healthy” sand from the Caspian coast for children’s sandboxes in the capital of Akhal

On November 19, Chairman of the Halk Maslakhaty Milli Gengesh (upper house of parliament) of Turkmenistan Gurbanguly Berdimuhamedov inspected the construction of the new capital of Akhal velayat, the state information agency TDH reports .


It should be noted that on this day the regular  session of the House of Parliament was also held, in which its chairman traditionally did not participate. Instead of Berdimuhamedov, the meeting was chaired by his deputy Kusymguly Babayev .


As before, the chairman of the State Committee for the Construction of the New Center Deryageldi Orazov and the hyakim of the city Shamuhammet Durdiliyev reported on the progress of work in the new city .


First of all, the ex-president visited the Children’s Rehabilitation Center, the design of the gate and the drainage grate of the pool, which he approved in June 2022.



Having examined the entrance gate, the chairman of the Halk Maslakhaty instructed to place at the main entrance “symbols, which should reflect the peacefulness, prosperity and unity of the younger generation.” What this means, TDH does not write. The TV report showed a sketch of the logo with children holding hands, with the geographic silhouette of the country in the center. Perhaps this image will be applied to the gate.




In the center, the ex-president approved the design of its interior decoration and color scheme. Berdimuhamedov noted that the colors should be light and bright, as “the object is intended for young citizens.”



For sandboxes, the chairman of the Halk Maslakhaty instructed to use ” sea sand from the ecologically clean coast of the Caspian Sea, since its healing power for people, especially children, has been scientifically proven .”


He also inspected the pavilions built around the kindergarten and “noted their need to protect children from the sun.”



The ex-president’s next focus was on road signs, for which, according to the ex-president, it is important to choose weather-resistant materials and “color characteristics.” He approved the designs of road signs and signs in June 2022.



Choosing the names of the streets of the new city, Berdimuhamedov noted that it would be right to perpetuate the names of B. Kerbabaev, K. Kurbannepesov, K. Ezizov, A. Garlyev, S. Atayeva, M. Kuliyeva, M. Garryev and others.



“Arkadag suggested addressing the President of Turkmenistan with this issue, discussing it with members of the Halk Maslakhaty and deputies of the Mejlis Milli Gengesh, representatives of public organizations, political parties, paying attention to the legal side,” TDH notes.



Gurbanguly Berdimuhamedov also considered design projects for the names of the new city’s khyakimlik, the cultural sector, the complex of public institutions, the velayat agro-industrial complex, the branches of the Türkmenistan, Daýhanbank, Senagat and Halkbank banks, the velayat construction and energy complex and public utilities, health care, industry and communications complex.



The Chairman of the Halk Maslakhaty got acquainted with the draft address plates and made a number of recommendations and comments.


At a meeting with Orzaov and Durdyliev, the ex-president instructed:


  • to use first of all the digital system and the concept of “smart” city;


  • solve problems related to the maintenance of electric buses and electric taxis;


  • develop electronic registration of citizens at the place of residence in the new city;


  • that services, including trade, provided to the residents of the center be in electronic format.


The ex-president also said that a media center will be located in the new city, which should be equipped with modern means of communication.


The last instruction concerned the preparation at a high level of the opening ceremony of the first stage of the new capital of the Akhal velayat.


“The upcoming toy ( festival – note HT ) should be held on a large scale in order to demonstrate warm Turkmen hospitality and the beauty of national celebrations to numerous guests,” said the chairman of the Halk Maslakhaty.


Earlier it was reported that the opening of the city after the completion of the first stage of development will take place in December 2022. The name of the new capital of Akhal velayat has not yet been officially announced.
