KTZ has created an operational headquarters to coordinate the movement of trains in emergencies in the Kordai and Shu districts of Zhambyl region





December 15 this year Due to strong winds and frosts, a local natural emergency has been declared in the Kordai and Shu districts of the Zhambyl region. Starting from December 13, the region experienced increased winds of up to 50 m/sec, snowstorms, almost zero visibility, and a sharp drop in air temperature.


KTZ has created an operational headquarters with the participation of all involved services to coordinate the movement of trains in emergency situations. Due to unfavorable weather conditions and to ensure traffic safety on railway sections of the region, a decision was made to set train speed limits. Freight trains going in this direction have been temporarily delayed. Priority is given to the passage of passenger trains. There is difficulty in the movement of passenger trains. We are working on our own to clean the railway tracks. In the period from December 13 to 15 this year. 2,232 people, 9 units of snow removal equipment were involved in the fight against snow and more than 11,250 cubic meters were removed


Bad weather provoked a shutdown of external power supply, which led to a failure in the power supply of the Talgo passenger train No. 41/42 Almaty 2-Atyrau, which is why the electric locomotive was urgently replaced with a diesel locomotive.

The national carrier provides meals for passengers.


It should be noted that on December 13-14, passenger trains from Boranda station to Shymkent and Tyulkubas stations evacuated more than 300 people stuck on the road due to bad weather. Thus, 240 passengers were transported to Shymkent by trains No. 33 “Almaty - Aktobe” and No. 77 “Almaty-Mangistau”. Another 108 passengers were transported by train No. 55 “Kokshetau - Kyzylorda”.


JSC Passenger Transportation notifies of possible delays and changes to the train schedule until weather conditions improve.


Passengers can request information on delays and cancellations of passenger trains by calling the toll-free number “1433” and the Telegram bot “KTZH_PP_BOT”.
