Angren-Pap Railway Tunnel construction: 2 out of 19 kilometers built in a year :500 meters constructed from the Fergana Valley side and about a 1.5 kilometers from Angren. Remaining: 17 kilometers. A insider wishing to remain anonymous told Uznews.net that about two kilometers of a future tunnel under the Kirchik Pass has been built. The 19-km rail tunnel is due to be finished by the middle of 2016.

It should be noted that the official state media has not been reporting on the pace of construction. For instance, one of the latest reports published by 12uz.uz on July 12 provided lots of photos and statistics about the project but failed to mention the current state of construction.

“This is the longest rail tunnel and first major independent project built by China in Central Asia. The construction started in September 2013 with the estimated building time believed to be three years. It should be open for use on August 1, 2016,” 12uz.uz cited Zhou Xiaoguang, the head of China Railway Tunnel Group.

The tunnel is a crucial part of a future railway network linking central parts of Uzbekistan with the Fergana Valley.
