By 2030, Kazakhstan will complete construction of Almaty's first satellite town, Gate City, as reported by Deputy Minister for Investment and Development of the Republic Roman Sklyar in his interview to the media. “The decision of the Almaty Regional Council dated May 12, 2016 approved the finalized feasibility study for the project for construction of the first satellite town called Gate City in the period until 2030,” he said.
“The territory of Almaty's satellite Gate City is already provided with almost all the necessary engineering and communication infrastructure. As for the first line of construction, there have been built the water, gas and electricity supply facilities; now we are building the first starting complex of the road infrastructure. Also, work is underway to arrange the transport and communication corridor needed for the further laying of the utility lines. Nearing completion is also the construction of a 200 Gcal/h boiler facility. There have been prepared the design and estimate documentation for construction of sewerage networks with discharge of 16,800 cubic meters of waste water to the treatment facilities at Almaty,” R. Sklyar said.
The new feasibility study drawn up for the first of four satellite cities provides for KZT650 billion of investments to be made by 2030. Of these funds, KZS206 billion will be allocated from the budget, while private investment will amount to KZT444 billion.
According to Roman Sklyar, after 2030 it is planned to consider the possibility of building another three satellite cities: Growing City, Golden City and Green City.
The decision on the construction of four satellite towns at Almaty was adopted in 2006. In 2007, the project was considered and approved by President of Kazakhstan Nursultan Nazarbayev. The G4 City project was launched in 2008.
