President Shavkat Mirziyoyev, during familiarization with the construction of the second stage of the Tashkent Aboveground Ring Metro on June 6, gave instructions on expanding the public transport network and developing the subway infrastructure.
Projects aimed at organizing this work have been presented to the Head of State today. In particular, information was reported on plans to continue the second stage of the elevated metro ring with a connection to the Sergeli branch, the introduction of modern construction methods, the modernization of metro rolling stock, and further increase passenger traffic.
As you know, it is planned to build five stations by the end of this year as part of the second phase of the project, and two more stations next year, for the Navruz holiday. This line will cover about 250 thousand residents of 62 mahallas with metro services.

It is determined that 26 makhallas of Tashkent will be covered by the public transport network for the first time and connected to the metro. Additional electric buses will be purchased for this purpose.
