10-km road being constructed in Balkh
MAZAR-I-SHARIF (PAN): A 10-kilometer road, connecting two districts, is being constructed and blacktopped in northern Balkh province, officials said on Wednesday.
Funded by Germany, the road will facilitate residents of Balkh and Chamtal districts, the provincial public works director, Inayatullah, told reporters.
He said the construction would take a year to complete at a cost of $3 million.
The Balkh district chief, Timor Shah Payaz, told Pajhwok Afghan News residents of several villages would be able to commute between the two districts once work on the road was completed.
