In the pre-war years, the engineers of Lentransproekt (since 1951 - Lengiprotrans) worked in Azerbaijan. According to their project, a single-track railway line was built on a steam locomotive with a baton method of communication on the Azerbaijan railway on the Alaty - Salyan - Astara section with the adjoining sections of Salyan - Neftechala (35 km) and Kazi - Bayramli (15 km). This road was of particular importance for the country, as it was laid along the coast of the Caspian Sea and provided communication between the settlements of the eastern part of Azerbaijan, known as the oil and gas region.
