The reconstruction of the railway station of Karaganda, which is conducted from August 2018, is planned to be completed at the end of 2019.
Currently, work is underway to build an additional terminal. An indoor heated concourse crossing will be built with the installation of escalators and elevators for free movement on the 2-5- track. Conditions are created for barrier-free access of persons with disabilities to the services of the station. For a comfortable stay of passengers on the platforms it is planned to install canopies.
Repair and construction works are carried out in stages. All the necessary procedures for the production of works during the operation of the facility are observed.
The project has planned a clear separation of the station into zones. In the operating area there is a booking hall, information Desk, waiting room. In the service-storage rooms, mother and child rooms, service center, mini-markets, food outlets, shopping kiosks, hair salons.
After the reconstruction, the area of the station will expand by 1,600 square meters and will be 3,900 square meters, which will increase its capacity from 4,000 to 7,000 passengers per day, the number of seats from 417 to 670 seats.
First of all, the reconstruction is aimed at solving the existing problems of the station, ensuring the safety of passengers, anti-terrorist protection of the facility.
Postponing construction and installation works at a later date may affect the cost of the project as a whole.
We ask you to understand the temporary inconveniences that are inevitable during the reconstruction of such facilities.
