The concept of a new train station in Astana has been approved, Tengrinews reports citing the press office of the city’s authorities.

The new train station of Astana capable of servicing 12,000 passengers a day will be located near Mynzhyldyk alley west of Khan Shatyr shopping mall and Kabanbai batyr street. The construction is going to be finished before the international exhibition EXPO-2017 to be held in Astana in summer.

“This is a multifunctional and promising part of the city that includes a residential area, several business centers, hotels, schools, pre-schools and other social and cultural facilities. Commercial premises will occupy 656,032 square meters, and 2.8 million square meters will be allotted for housing. Business centers will occupy 507,660 square meters, hotels – 304,375 square meters, utilities and auxiliary infrastructure – 126,000 square meters,” the press office said.

The railway station will be built using green technologies, for example, it will have energy-saving lifts and escalators, heat exchangers as well as solar batteries and geothermal power generators, which is very relevant given the fact that the theme of the upcoming EXPO-2017 in Astana is Future Energy.

Apart from the train station, two new bus stations as well as an airport terminal will be built before 2017 for Astana to be able to accommodate the big flow of visitors expected in Astana during the EXPO-2017.
