KTZ renews railway tracks by rails of Kazakh production
According to Manager of the Directorate of highway railway network of “KTZ” Serik Aliyev, Aktobe rails are supplied for track repair works to all departments of the railway.
Products of Aktobe producers from last year are actively used to lay the rail-sleeper grid links at the construction of new second railway line Almaty-1-Shu, as well as on access roads to the projects of the ferry complex of the Kuryk port and the railway station of Astana.
For all three objects in 2016 was delivered about 14 thousand tons of rails.
Laying of long rails production of ARBZ, which are characterized by high operational and technical characteristics, increases the length of continuous sections of highway. This in turn provides high-speed movement of trains, reducing maintenance costs of rolling stock and also reduces travel time for passengers, S. Aliyev said.
For the modernization of main railway network under a long-term agreement on the purchase of rail, concluded between JSC “NC “KTZ” and LLP “Aktobe Rails and Section Works “, it is planned to supply more than 600 thousand tons of rails until 2022.
In the current year under the contract over 60 tons of railways to Uzbekistan, Tajikistan, Belarus, Georgia, Turkmenistan, Russian Federation, Estonia and Iran will be delivered.
