The Government of Kazakhstan is running an ambitious program to upgrade all the major roads in the country, having allocated around US$ 2,765 million from the National Fund and several IFI loans.

The Centre-South Road Corridor Project, being implemented with the support of EBRD and IBRD, is vital for the expansion of the industrial and touristic activities in this area.

Within this intervention, IRD Engineering has been awarded a new contract for the supervision of a civil works contract aimed at widening several road sections with a total length of 62 kilometres into 4 lanes with a designed speed of 120 km/h. The route belongs to the itinerary connecting the 2 largest cities in Kazakhstan: Nur-Sultan (former Astana) and Almaty.

For 39 months, IRD team will review the design documentation, bringing it to the desired standards, and will carry out the supervision of the works according to FIDIC Conditions of Contract for Works of Civil Engineering Construction (Multilateral Development Bank Harmonised Edition).

The total investment value of these sections is roughly 55 million Euro.
