GARDEZ/MAIDAN SHAHR (Pajhwok): Five different projects have recently been completed in Paktika and Maidan Wardak provinces, officials said on Wednesday.
In southeastern Paktika, three bridges were constructed at a cost of 40 million afghanis, the deputy governor told a gathering in Gardez.
Syed Abdul Wali Sahi said thousands of people would benefit from the bridges that solved transportation problems and connected residents of the areas concerned.
He said earlier residents had to face problems while crossing the rivers and the bridges had cut the distances short.
Residents of Ahmadkhel district said it would take hours reaching the district bazaar, but the bridges had resolved the problem and facilitated residents of many areas.
In central Maidan Wardak province, construction work on a football and a volleyball ground has been completed in the Chak district.
Mohammad Hashim, the district administrative chief, said it was the first time playgrounds were constructed for the youth in the district.
The 2,800 square meters grounds were inaugurated on Wednesday and they took three months to complete, he said.
