Uzbekistan Railways is experiencing a time of rapid development. Over the years of independence Uzbekistan has created a unified national railway network with a total length of over 6,020 km. Meanwhile, the current realities require the development and exploration of new routes linking major international markets, as well as the rational use of existing highways. The construction of an electrified railway Angren-Pop is one of the major projects to provide the optimal route linking Central and South Asia, Europe and the Middle East. The joint project with Chinese partners was launched in June 2013, when Uzbekistan Railways signed a contract with the Chinese company China Railway Tunnel Group on the construction of the passing tunnel on the railway Angren-Pop for $455 million. Cost of project - 2 billion USD


Construction will be finished in 2016

This is important in terms of creating favorable conditions for further comprehensive economic and social development of the regions of the Ferghana Valley.

The uniqueness of the new railway line is that it passes through the mountain pass Kamchik at a height of more than 2.2 thousand meters above sea level.

An important part of the steel track will be a 19-kilometer tunnel. More than 1,000 professionals of China Railway Tunnel Group are involved in the project, as well as attracted over 3,000 railway workers of Uzbekistan. Together, they have already concreted 7.3 km.of tunnel, hereby using the most modern technology.

The total length of the new railway line will be 123.1 km. In addition to the tunnel there, will be erect 285 artificial objects, 22 bridges, 6 viaducts. Planned to build six railway stations and 2 terminals.

Construction work will be carried out until the end of this year, and construction of all related infrastructure is going to be completed next year.

Three regions with the rest of the country at present are connected through the air transport and highways.

Cost of project - 2 billions $

people who don't live there... Do I undertand well that this railway will allow
uzbek people to go by train to and from the Ferghana valley without having
to cross Tadjikistan as it is the case now ?

How will the railway to Fergana vallley be connected to China?

They write "The construction of an electrified railway Angren-Pop is one of the major projects to provide the optimal route linking Central and South Asia, Europe and the Middle East." - but currently I don't see any railway routes from the Fergana valley to China. Is such a line planned? Across Kyrgystan or Tajikistan?
If not, then the Fergana-line is just of domestic use (connection between the Fergana-valley and the rest of Uzbekistan), but not part of an international corridor.

Maybe, Uzbekistan will be connect with China across Kyrgyzstan (These countries have a railway project - Uzbekistan -Kyrgyzstan - China). But, exactly this project was created specially for connect Fergana Valley with rest of Uzbekistan.

In fact, after the soviet republics became independent countries, Uzbek railways were cut in 4 parts :

- The main central part linking Tachkent, Samarkand and Bukhara
- A northern part in the region of Nukus and Urgentch, impossible to reach from the central part except via a line through Turkmenistan ;
- A southern part around Termez, also impossible to reach from the central part except also via a line through Turkmenistan ;
- And an eastern part in the Ferghana valley that can only be reached by crossing Tadjikistan.

Given that those new countries do not have the best relations (there are serious tensions, notably around water issues), Uzbekistan
started a program to unify their network, so to be able to reach any part without going through neighboring countries.

- The northern part is now directly reachable via a line Uchkuduk-Turtkul, and along the east bank of the Amur-Darya river to Nukus ;
- The esatern part will be reached through this new line Angren-Pap discussed above ;
- And Termez is now - if I understand well - directly accessible via the new line Tashguzar - Boysun - Kumkurgan.

So after the delivery of the Angren-Pap line, promised for 2016-2017, the uzbek network will be totally reunited.

Financing of Pap-Kokand-Andijan section electrification will be funded by savings from the Angren-Pap project.

The government allowed Uzbekistan Railways and Uzbekenergo companies to begin the construction of external power supply facilities of Pap-Kokand-Andijan section simultaneously with the design and development of the construction documents.

Uzbekistan started construction of the Angren-Pap new electrified railway in July 2013. The railway line with a length of 129 km would run through the Kamchik pass and link the three oblasts in the east of the country - Andijan, Namangan and Fergana - with the remaining part of Uzbekistan.

The project worth $1.8 billion is financed through the state budget, Uzbek railway company's own funds and loans of the international financial institutes. Construction is to be completed in late 2017.

What will happen to the existing line that connects the Fergana Valley (Kokand) to the
rest of Uzbekistan (Zafarabad), via Tadjikistan ? As far as I can see, this line is
disconnected from the other parts of the Tadjik network... Is it likely to close ?

Final Breakthrough of longest railway tunnel in Central Asia









China Railway Tunnel Group finished construction of the Qamchiq Tunnel on the Uzbekistan Angren-Pap railway line in Uzbekistan on Saturday.

The Chinese company took only 900 days to complete the 19.26-kilometer-long tunnel, which is the largest cooperation project between Uzbekistan and China. The construction cost was about 450 million U.S. dollars.

Representatives from both sides gathered near the tunnel on Saturday morning for a breakthrough ceremony. They pushed a button that set off the final explosion to finish the tunnel and shortly after a line of cars became the first to pass through the new tunnel.

The Qamchiq Tunnel is expected to promote political, economic and social development in Uzbekistan, and deepen cooperation between the two countries. It also marks another important step forward for the "Belt and Road" initiative.
