Within the scope of the project, a railway station will be built at the 42nd kilometer of the railway line in Gülistan and at the 83rd kilometer at the Imamnazar location. The Ashgabat administration will continue this line from its border to the Akina settlement of Afghanistan. In addition, two railway bridges are expected to be built on this route.
