In the new capital of Ahal will launch an electric taxi and build a mosque to “strengthen the moral foundations”

On June 18, the chairman of the Halk Maslakhaty of the Milli Gengesh of Turkmenistan, Gurbanguly Berdimuhamedov , made a weekly working trip to Akhal velayat, where he inspected the construction of the new capital of the region, the state information agency TDH reports .

The main topic of this inspection was the approval of the design of street signs.

Later, TDH added to the news, saying that the ex-president suggested using electric buses and electric taxis in the new city. In this regard, it was instructed to train drivers and maintenance specialists for new types of transport.

Last May, the head of Tatarstan, Rustam Minnikhanov , at a meeting with Gurbanguly Berdimuhamedov , said that the KAMAZ company had prepared a road map for Turkmenistan in various directions, including electric buses. Then, already in December , it was reported that KAMAZ was negotiating the supply of its electric buses to Turkmenistan in 2022 for test operation.

In October 2020, Berdimuhamedov Sr. opened the Complex of Motor Transport Enterprises, where he was shown the Hyundai Elec City electric bus. However, its further operation was not reported.

TDH also writes that Berdimuhamedov Sr. was informed about the fulfillment of his instructions related to the need to obtain certificates, patents for each sign and engineering structure of the road transport system .

The head of the State Committee for the construction of the center of Akhal velayat Deryageldi Orazov , "taking into account numerous wishes", made a proposal to build a mosque in the city. The ex-president approved it and instructed that 5.5 thousand people could pray there at the same time. “This will contribute to the strengthening of moral principles and a benevolent atmosphere in society ,” TDH writes.

Then the chairman of the Halk Maslakhaty inspected cottages with an area of 300 square meters, which "meet modern requirements", as well as sidewalks.

Orazov said that when laying the sidewalks, "conveniences for people with disabilities were taken into account."
