2 projects executed in Badakhshan

FAIZABAD (PAN): Two projects – a road and a retaining wall – have been completed in the northeastern province of Badakhshan, an official said on Saturday.

The 680-metre long and seven-metre wide road took one year to complete in Faizabad the provincial capital, Governor Shah Waliullah Adib told Pajhwok Afghan News. He hoped the road would help resolve residents' problems during rains.

A 680-metre long and protecting wall around the governor’s house was inaugurated, Adib said, adding the project took six months to complete.

Both projects, costing 586,000, were funded by the US Army Corps of Engineers (USACE), providing work opportunities for 5,400 people during the period.

A shopkeeper, Abdul Khaliq, said: "People previously faced problems during rains due to mud on roads and streets but now they will easily commute in the city."
