“At the moment, the length of toll roads has been increased to 682 kilometres. Nur-Sultan – Schuchinsk road is 211 kilometres, Nur-Sultan – Temirtau is 134 kilometres, Almaty – Kapshagai is 42 kilometres and Almaty – Khorgos is 295 kilometres. The annual fees make up over four billion tenge, which saves budget funds for the maintenance of these roads,” he added.
Work began on the first toll road, Nur-Sultan – Schuchinsk, in 2013. Users pay in excess of one billion tenge ($2.6 million) annually, which covers maintenance costs.
