Astara and Lankaran section of Baku-Astara railroad should be relocated immediately - Vice-Speaker


Astara and Lankaran section of Baku-Astara railroad should be relocated immediately, Vice-Speaker of Azerbaijan’s parliament Ziyafat Asgarov said during discussion of drafts of state and consolidated budgets for 2018.

 

According to him, this railroad prevents access of Lankaran and Astara cities to the sea. ‘Relocation of the railroad to upper part of Lankaran city will, first of all, contribute to railway infrastructure, and development of tourism. Secondly, the relocation will allow more effective use of the railway. The sooner this happens, the better the result will be. You know that North-South corridor will be launched in a year. After launch of this corridor, the relocation process will be difficult. Therefore, I ask government to focus on this issue. This might be a great step for development of Lankaran and Astara cities’, he said.
