A temporary change in train service in Tashkent from July 15 to August 15 was announced by Uzrailpass, a subsidiary of Uzbekistan Railways.

Most trains that normally pass through Central (North) Station will depart from South Station. This change is due to the reconstruction of the track between the two stations.

During this period, high-speed trains Afrosiyob (to Samarkand, Bukhara and Shahrisabz), Sharq (to Bukhara), Nasaf (to Karshi), as well as Tashkent – Andijan, Tashkent – Volgograd (Russia) and Dushanbe (Tajikistan) – Tashkent will operate from the southern station.

The main station will serve four routes – Almaty (Kazakhstan) – Tashkent, as well as routes to Novosibirsk, Samara (both Russia) and Khojakent (Chimgan Mountains in the Tashkent region).

The company said free buses will be available between the North and South stations.

After the reconstruction of the track is completed, freight trains will not have to stop when passenger trains move around the city.
