Kabul Municipality plans roads, parks

Kabul Municipality plans roads, parks

Feb 20, 2013 - 18:12

KABULinfo-icon (PANinfo-icon): Pavement of streets, 20 recreational parks, four parking lots and a plantation campaign are among the Kabul Municipality’s projects to be executed next Afghan calendar year.

 Mayor Mohammad Yunus Nawandesh told reporters a one million sapling plantation drive would start in Kabul on March 7. Around 20,000 saplings would be planted on the Shirderwaza Mountain, he said.

He recalled more than a million saplings were planted in Kabul in 2011, when only two percent wilted. Nawandesh said all 20 parks would have entertainment facilities for children. The government has already purchased entertainment equipment from the US.

In a bid to control increasing traffic rush in Kabul streets, work on the four parking lots would be launched this spring, he promised.

Darul Aman, Chehel Satoon, Qargha and Qala-i-Zaman Khan roads are among the municipality priorities. The projects would be funded by the Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA), the mayor concluded.
