After the briefing and thorough analysis of the presented projects, the Turkmen Leader made comments and a number of adjustments.
The Head of State then continued his working trip to Ashgabat by helicopter.

Turkmen President, onboard the helicopter, then inspected the construction works in the northern part of the city and instructed to turn the Gurtly Lake located there into a natural holiday resort with modern recreational conditions.
The Head of State noted that with the creation of the recreational facilities, people will have the opportunity to comfortably spend their holidays near the Lake Gurtly.

President of Turkmenistan also examined ongoing construction of road-transport facilities along A. Niyazov Avenue and said the laying of multi-lane roads will ensure safe traffic and favorable conditions for both drivers and pedestrians.
Now the side lanes of road, which are marked with special line, are designated for ambulance and fire service vehicles. This is standard practice in the world and it is necessary that our drivers and pedestrians would comply with this rule. Such works have to be carried out at other streets of the city, the President Berdimuhamedov said.
