On March 7, the President got acquainted with the presentation of the forthcoming construction and landscaping work in the city of Tashkent.
As it is well-known, in 2025 Tashkent will host the Asian Youth Games. Many athletes and coaches, fans and journalists from all over the continent will come to the competition. With a view of holding this high-profile sport event at a high level in the Yashnabad District of the capital city, it is set to build an Olympic town. The project was developed by a British engineering company Arup.
In line with the project, an Olympic Stadium will be built in the center of the town and the indoor sports complexes, a palace of water sports, training grounds and rowing channel will be placed around it. All conditions will meet the requirements of the Olympic Council of Asia and international sports federations. An administrative building, a dormitory, a museum and household facilities will also be constructed.
In addition to hosting competitions, the town will serve as a training base. The Institute for Sport Excellence, sports federations and other institutions in the field of sports will begin to operate here.
Another area of work is the creation of a green walking area along the New Uzbekistan Street leading to an Olympic Town. It will have conditions and facilities for recreation and sports.
The President has inquired in detail about the cost of the project and the conditions that will be created for visitors. The responsible officials were instructed to calculate the volume of work and financial resources by years, to draw a clear plan and announce a bid for construction.
At a previous meeting on the implementation of the nationwide project «Yashil zamin» (‘Green Land’), the President has pointed out the practicality of planting flowering and deciduous trees along the roadsides. At the presentation, the relevant plans were reviewed.
To this end, 21 streets of Tashkent were selected, including a Small Ring Road, Mustaqillik, Navoiy, Islam Karimov, Afrosiyob, Shakhrisabz, Oybek and Babur streets. It is envisioned to plant seedlings of ornamental trees such as chestnut, lilac, ash, tulip tree, maple and linden. The trees will be grown by the repiquage method to ensure strong roots and straight growth of the trunks.
The President has emphasized the importance of planting the fruit trees such as figs, pomegranates and persimmons along with ornamental trees, as well as creating canopies of climbing plants in the streets.
