Work on 2 road schemes launched in Herat

Dec 15, 2011 - 10:38

HERAT CITY (PANinfo-icon): Work on two road construction projects in the western province of Herat was launched at the cost of $5.6 million (277 million afghanis), officials had said.

Asphalting the two roads in Shindand and Angel districts of the province would be completed during one year, regional head of public works department, Habibullah Temori, told Pajhwok Afghan News.

Completion of the projects would considerably help the residents by reducing traffic problems, taxi fares and the waste of time, he said, adding that the 21 kilometres roads would connect the mentioned above two districts.

Completion of the project will benefit all residents of the district, while travelling to the capital city, a tribal elder in the Shindand district, Dawa Khan, said. "We are happy about the project, although we demanded the project several times before," he said.

Although Shindand was one of the major districts of this province bordering Iran, the Afghan government and donor countries did not take any step to work on development projects, he said, urging the officials to start infrastructure projects in the district.

According to the officials of the public works department work on a link funded road, which will connect the district with the capital city by support of Italian government would also start in the near future.
