Feasibility study of the general plan of Tashkent selected the variant of moderate territorial development of the city, where it is expected to increase the area up to 41.8 thousand hectares. The area of the district will remain at the level of 115.112 ha. The area of the city increased by 8630 hectares at the expense of the lands of Kibray area Srednechirchikskiy and Zangiata areas.
The growth of the area will occur primarily at the expense of the cutting territory to the north-east of the existing minor road, and district agricultural land in the south and southwest, which are located in the city area; as well as on the left bank of the river Chirchik - north of Yunusabad, south of the village Salar, Khanabad, territories adjoining Sergeli, the left bank of the river Chirchik till the projectable bypass road.
The border will become smoother, the territory of the city - more compact, especially along the southern and eastern borders. Annexation of lands along the canal Salar and river Chirchik to the city will require a large amount of measures for water protection zones. It is planning to completely equip the Tashkent ring road along the new border.
