AIBAK (PANinfo-icon): A retaining wall and a bridge, benefiting hundreds of people, were constructed in northern Samangan province, officials said on Saturday.

The 500 metre-long and three-metre high retaining wall was built in Hosni Tagab area of Darah Sauf Bala district, the rural rehabilitation and development director said.

The wall would protect roads and a coalmine and other public and private properties from flood waters, Mohammad Aman Amin, told Pajhwok Afghan News.

According to Amin, an 11 metres long and two metres wide bridge was constructed over a river in the Kushkak village of the district. Funded by the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP), both projects cost 1,200,000 afghanis ($26,466).

Darah Sauf Bala district chief, Ahmad Ali Hussaini, said the retaining wall would secure about 100 houses, 100 acres of farmlands, a clinic, a school and a mosqueinfo-icon from being flooded.
