Residents fund construction of road



Residents fund construction of road

MAZAR-I-SHARIF (PANinfo-icon): Residents of the Sancharak district of northern Sar-i-Pul province said on Monday they had funded the construction of a four-kilometre road with their own resources.

When the district municipality ignored their repeated requests, area residents pooled money to pave the road in Frashqan. Haji Sufi, a tribal elder, said costing two million afs ($35,000), the road was completed today.

Connecting the village with the district centre, the road would benefit 2,000 families, Sufi told Pajhwok Afghan News. Villagers said previously they would travel for hours to reach the district.

Muhammad Azam, the district municipality head, said they could not give a positive response to request from villagers due to budget constraints. Finally, residents paved the road with financial support from villagers, he concluded.
