According to the information policy department of the President’s Office, in the course of his speech, the President noted that today one of the largest bridges in the country opens. "It has a strategic importance for Kyrgyzstan. The road running through the bridge is more than 570 kilometers, and it passes through Jalal-Abad, Chui, Naryn and Issyk-Kul oblasts of the country. The road connects many regions. I congratulate you on the opening of a new bridge! Let it will serve our people for many years. It will be a bridge of friendship, prosperity and unity of the bridge! " said Atambayev.

He also said that the old bridge was built in 1969 and served the people for 46 years. "For 20 years no major repairs were made on this bridge.
