"The work is underway,” he said. “Funds have been already allocated for this project. The distance from Baku city to Gabala city is approximately 210 kilometers. I have addressed the president, the Ministry of Economy regarding this project. Eleven more electric trains and three new diesel trains are required."
Gurbanov stressed that the Baku-Balakan railway is being repaired.
"The reconstruction has already been launched,” he said. “Since 2017, we have already laid 60,000-70,000 sleepers along the railway route and this process is underway. At our own expense, we purchased construction equipment worth $40 million. Austrian equipment was purchased through the loan."
