The proposed Astana Light Rail Transit (LRT) project will promote urban mobility and improve quality of life, thereby supporting inclusive growth in the fast-growing Astana City in the Republic of Kazakhstan. It will support the construction of a part of the LRT system which the Government of Kazakhstan (GOK) plans to construct during 2012-2017. The whole LRT system will be structured in three phases: (i) phase 1 of 14 kilometer from the Astana airport to the city center; (ii) phase 2 of 8 km to 10 km from the city center to the northern part of Astana and the main railway station; and (iii) phase 3 of 18 km that will close the loop back to the city center. GOK considers this to be a flagship project, and has requested the Asian Development Bank (ADB) to finance the civil works for Phase 2 (the project). Phase 3 will be pursued at a later stage.
