Trips and walks in the Almaty metro
Almaty metro tour
Almaty Metro is a metro system under construction in Almaty. The first part was opened on December 1, 2011. To implement the plan for the introduction of modern technologies during the construction of the Almaty metro, a high-performance tunnel fishing complex "Herrenknecht S-320" of the German company "Herrenknecht AG" was purchased. The Almaty Metro is a strategically important facility for our country. According to the project, the first stage of the metro will connect the intersection of Furmanov Avenue and Rayymbek and the intersection of Abai and Gagarin streets.
Construction of the metro in Almaty
The works on the construction of the metro in Almaty belong to the Russian company JSC "Layton". The construction of rails in tunnels, video installation works also became the first in Kazakhstan for Russians, the second in Central Asia (after the Tashkent metro) and the 17th in the CIS. Due to the high seismic activity of the region, construction work was carried out in difficult engineering and geological conditions. The unique physical and mechanical properties of the soil also created various difficulties in the process of excavation. However, the absence of groundwater in the construction area can be considered a positive factor. Currently, the construction of the first line in the western direction to the Kalkaman-3 microdistrict is underway. After completion of construction in the western direction of Almaty, it is planned to start construction to the Almaty-1 station.
