Passage through tunnel under Too-Ashuu pass in Kyrgyzstan to become paid

Passage through the tunnel under Too-Ashuu pass in Kyrgyzstan will become paid, the Minister of Transport and Roads Zhamshitbek Kalilov said today at a press conference.

According to him, an electronic barrier is planned to install in Sosnovka village. «Before passing, a driver will have to pay. This applies to everyone," Zhamshitbek Kalilov said.

He added that the project was developed long ago, but many its opponents appeared. «I reported about the plans to the Prime Minister, gave the facts, and he supported me. People come to me asking to give job at weight control point. Although the salary there is 4,500 soms. How can one live with such a salary? Of course, there is corruption. Thus, we will eradicate it," Zhamshitbek Kalilov said.
