Minister of Investments and Development of the Republic of Kazakhstan, Kassymbek Zhenis  during the governmental hour in Majilis said that up to May, 15 the construction work on the new railway station in Astana will be completed, correspondent reports.

"It is very important to mention the rail station in Astana.  We reviewed the new station` construction on Saturday. We plan that until May, 15 the construction work will be completed and by the beginning of the EXPO station will meet the first passengers", Kassymbek said.

The Minister noted that the station is unique in terms of area and quality, it would be the best in the CIS.

"Today, for example, an existing station in the old part of the city can accommodate up to 12,000 passengers per day. However, it serves nearly 18,000, i.e. outside the design capacity. The opening of a new station radically changes the situation. We expect that during the EXPO there will be at least 2 million passengers and they will arrive by different means of transport. Mostly, by the railways, so we are very seriously preparing for the completion of the project and the start of the EXPO", the Minister added.
