Organization of high-speed movement of passenger trains on the section of the railway line Tashkent-Samarkand
The high speed railway of 344 kilometers long connects two major cities of Uzbekistan, Tashkent and Samarkand. This railroad passes through 4 regions: Tashkent, Syr-Darya, Dzhizak and Samarkand.
The line is serviced by a high-speed train “Afrosiyob”, which runs seven days a week. For the first time in Uzbekistan in this section there have been built 4 new metal bridges over channels with total length of 400 m using bridge span of 110 m long. The bridge structure allows running of trains at a speed of 200 km/ h.
Infrastructure start-up and commissioning, including modernization of electrification, signaling and telecommunication systems, which provide for train speed at this section up to 250 km/ h, is completed.
409 existing constructive works, including 154 bridges, have been examined at the section Tashkent – Samarkand. Stations have been reconstructed and new railway crossings have been built. 56,5 km of second tracks and 60,2 km of new railway tracks, 189 engineering structures, including 148 water-supply lines, 40 drain siphons and 1 tunnel through bridge of 142 m long have been build on this section in accordance with the project since the beginning of construction.
