Ashgabat's Changing Boundaries

Posted by apm-wa on 7 August 2018 in English (English)

Today’s newspaper carried news and a map of an internal boundary shift of two of Ashgabat’s boroughs (“etraplar”). About 1,376 hectares of land has been shifted from Buzmeyin etrap to Bagtyyarlyk etrap. More map editing ahead.

The newspaper also said the mayor proposed annexing more territory into the city, which means it is highly likely the outer boundary of Ashgabat will change again in the foreseeable future. Even more map editing ahead!
