On 2015.06.15, two metro stations changed names:

Hamza became Novza
Habib Abdullaev became Shahriston

Many stations have been renamed over the years:

Hooow foolish a governmet could be!!!1 Where around the world, many cities are returning tram after 50 or 60 years for correcting their mistakes of closure, Taskent ,which has stilll the largest tram network in Asia, are going to be totally closed!!!!!

Why they are angry with tram? They are on reserved track, not interfaring with other vehiclles, and also Tashkent is not an overcongested city/

Please protest everyone in Tashkent agaisnt closure of this wonderful network.

I'm afraid, there are closing down regarding maintenance issues and believing in car traffic. Which is a general problem of ALL post-Soviet electrotransport - tough comepition with local buses, which sometimes runs near tracks, are more reliable than trams or trolleybuses. But, I agree that cost of closure might be higher than keeping system open

I presume that would be maintenance on tracks and other infrastructure as they have bought 50 new trams in the last decade.

In fact what sort of governance is it that buys 50 new trams and then decides to close the system?!

That's the point. They all wastaging the common-people's hard earning money. They bought 50 new trams for refurbishing the system, and now decide to close the entire network.

Unfortunately many third-world countries are lobbying automobile industries, and not aware about the environment. THEY ARE CUTTING THE BRANCH WHERE THEY SIT.

Uzbeks in Tashkent bid farewell to tram service

Quote:
People in Uzbekistan's capital Tashkent are bidding farewell to the city's trams after local officials decided to take them out of service.
The move to close the 90km (56-mile) network and sell its fleet of 80 trams was announced in March.
Tashkent mayor Rakhmonbek Usmavov said the trams were unprofitable and slowing down traffic on the city's busy roads.
But many residents are lamenting the decision, and have taken to social media to mourn the loss of the trams.
Uzbeks have been taking photos with the trams and sharing memes about the network.
One woman told local media she took a photo of her son on a tram because she wanted him to have a memory of riding one.
Mr Usmavov said trams no longer provided an effective means of transport, with thousands more passengers using the bus and metro networks instead.
Removing the lines will allow the city to widen some of its roads to ease the congestion, he added.The city's tram service is one of the oldest in Central Asia, with the first line opening in 1912.
Some social media users defended the system as a convenient and green way to travel, that took years and a lot of money to develop.
Describing the trams as more than "just a mode of transport", many users said that without them, Tashkent would lose some of its character and distinctiveness.
Umid Abdullaev posted: "Maybe in a couple of years, Tashkent's next authorities will realise that they made a big mistake and for the sake of the environment decide to rebuild tram rails and buy trams."
Anna Yurtsevna lamented "It's a pity, my baby will never see a tram."
Work to wind down the service began in 1999 but despite the gradual closure of lines, the city continued to acquire new stock from Russia and the Czech Republic. Some of the fleet is less than five years old.
Aleksandr Nuyazin wrote: "The state has spent a lot of money for something ending after just five years? And nobody has been held responsible."
"Idiots, they recently bought new trams for an average price of $300,000 [Ł200,000] per unit", posted Schastliviy Papa.
The transport authorities said two major lines would stop operating in April, leaving Tashkent with only two tram lines which are scheduled to close in June. Dismantling of the whole system is scheduled for completion by August.
Many residents took the opportunity to ride on the trams for one last time. One user posted an image of himself riding on a tram for what he said was his first and last time.

Wider roads=more traffic. Reason for closure is not that logical for me.

It is a shame that some cities around the world still proceed with such senseless development plans. A wide reaching tram network such as this could have been modernized and improved the city for the better.
