Development of a feasibility study for the construction of China — Kyrgyzstan — Uzbekistan railway will be completed approximately in the second quarter of 2023. The Chief Engineer of Kyrgyz Temir Zholu state enterprise Roman Spassky told today at a briefing.

According to him, 157 specialists from China arrived in Kyrgyzstan to start developing a feasibility study. The first group went to Naryn region, the second — to Jalal-Abad.

«The route of the road remains the same: Torugart — Arpa — Makmal — Jalal-Abad. It was chosen due to the fact that roads are planned to be connected in the future,» Roman Spassky said.
