The railway has made a huge contribution to the development of the city. A telegraph office and the first schools began to be built in the city, and the population began to grow; the construction of diesel locomotives and institutions serving steam locomotives opened the way for the group arrival of young people from villages and towns. An environment worthy of a modern city appeared: the Ayagoz Meat Processing Plant, a creamery and a tannery, known throughout the USSR, worked. Half of these products were supplied to other regions of the USSR. Then the plant for the production of reinforced concrete products and a brewery performed their work. Later, a large military garrison appeared in the city. Since the 70s, having reached the peak of the city's development, active construction work began in Ayagoz, a plan for the development of the city was drawn up, but all this was negatively affected by the collapse of the Soviet Union.
