8-km road inaugurated in Samangan

Dec 24, 2011 - 16:30

AIBAK (PANinfo-icon): An eight-kilometre road, connecting several mountainous areas with the capital of northern Samangan province, was inaugurated on Saturday, an official said.

The Worldinfo-icon Bank-funded project that cost more than $500,000 (24,500,000 afghanis) took nine months to complete, the deputy director of public works said.

Zia Humayun told Pajhwok Afghan News the five-metre wide road would connect 25 villages in Taikhonak and Manqotan areas with Aibak. Five bridges and a 200-metre protective wall were also constructed as part of the project, he added.

Resident Mullahinfo-icon Abdul Samad said the road would help resolve the problems earlier faced by residents. Previously, he recalled, people had to cover a distance of 120 kilometres to reach the provincial capital.
