The relevant document was signed by the President in order to continue development of the domestic railway transportation industry, bringing the Gizilgaya-Bereket-Etrek railroad in line with the international standards.
Thus, the project involves construction of 110-kW power transmission lines, transformer stations, purchase of equipment for system of warning and communications, projection and conduction of construction and installation work as well as design and construction of equipped service-technical facilities on provision of communication and electricity supply to the Bereket station.
