The Head of state was informed about the progress of construction projects in the city of Tashkent.
In recent years, the city of Tashkent has seen a surge in construction projects. A number of new buildings, business centers, factories, and recreational areas have been constructed. Large-scale construction is also taking place outside the city, with an eye towards urbanization.
Among the most important projects are the Olympic Village and New Tashkent.
On November 9 last year, President Shavkat Mirziyoyev laid the foundation stone of the Olympic Village. This facility will occupy 100 hectares and include an athletics and football stadium for 10,000 seats, 6 indoor and 7 outdoor sports facilities, a water sports palace, a cycle track, and complexes for martial arts and team sports. In 2025, the Asian and Para-Asian Youth Games will be held here.
The project is being implemented jointly with the Chinese company CAMC Engineering, which has experience in building sports facilities in 70 countries. More than a thousand workers and engineers with advanced technology are involved in construction. To date, the foundation work of 7 main buildings has been completed. The following stages of construction are actively continuing.
