Astana Light Metro
The Astana Metro is a planned light rail rapid transit system located in Astana, Kazakhstan, which is the capital of the country with a population of about 750,000. Construction should have finished roughly about the same time as the Almaty Metro, which was estimated for 2010. However, completion has been postponed until 2017. As of April 2013, work has yet to start.
The metro is part of Nazarbayev's Kazakhstan 2030 economic plan to transform Kazakhstan into an economic power. A great deal of construction has taken place in Astana since it became the capital in 1997.
To date, only one metro system is operating in Kazkahstan, in Almaty.
