100-km road being rebuilt in Jawzjan

100-km road being rebuilt in Jawzjan

Nov 28, 2011 - 17:24

SHIBERGHAN (PAN): A survey to reconstruct a 100-kilometre road in northern Jawzjan province has been launched, officials said on Monday.

Reconstruction work on the road, a joint venture of the Swedish Provincial Reconstruction Team (PRT) and the US government, between Qush Tapa and Darzab districts will cost $2,000,000 (96,140,000).

PRT Commander Maj. Magnus FrekWal told Pajhwok Afghan News the road would connect the two districts with the provincial capital, Shiberghan.

The project would be launched by the end of the year jointly by Afghan, Swedish and American companies, he added.

Governor Mohammad Alam Sayee said the survey by the Ministry of Public Works would take two months to complete. He added the project would help reduce the travel time by four hours.

A resident of Qush Tapa district, Asadullah, hoped the problems faced by commuters would be resolved with the reconstruction of the road.

"About 200,000 families, 70 percent of them farmers, use the route to reach the provincial capital. Residents of Garziwal and Balsaragh districts in Faryab province also travel the same road," he said.
