6-km roads paved in Uruzgan, Kandahar

TIRINKOT/KANDAHAR CITY (PAN): Road projects, stretching close to six kilometers, were inaugurated in central Uruzgan and southern Kandahar provinces on Saturday.

A 4.5-km road was paved in Tirinkot, the capital of central Uruzgan province, in six months, Governor Amir Mohammad Akhundzada told Pajhwok Afghan News.

The Australian-funded project, costing $2.5 million (124.77 million afs), would resolve the city’s transportation woes, he added.

Akhundzada said some additional reconstruction projects were also in the pipeline. However, he gave no further details.

Samiullah, a storeowner in Tirinkot, was happy with the new road, saying travelling would become much easier in the area.

Separately, a one-kilometre road from Sardar Madad Khan Square to Kandahar University was paved in southern Kandahar province.

At the inaugural ceremony, Governor Tooryali Weesa said the road was constructed at a cost of 11.5 million afs by SITA, a Pakistani construction company and took two months to complete.
