In the northern part of Ashgabat Street Khoja Ahmet Yasavi - one of the significant city roads has been reconstructed.

In honour of its opening the celebration which has begun on the crossing of Street Khoja Ahmet Yasavi with Avenue Bitarap Turkmenistan, near to the international airport has taken place.
Here, near to crossroads, three monitors on which music videos devoted to the 5th Asian indoor and martial arts games are shown, were established. The width of the central monitor - 18 metres, two others - 10 metres.
From here a bus caravan with honourable elders and children, art workers and arts was given a start. After it there went wedding motorcades with a newly-married couple the weddings of whom coincided with today's ceremonies of opening of new objects in Ashgabat.
The festive automobile procession stopped at a monumental composition "Shahyr" (Poet) on the crossing of Streets Khoja Ahmet Yasavi and Nurmuhammed Andalib. Here the children let out a set of multi-coloured balloons into the sky and then a small concert program with incendiary dance kushdepdi took place.
