Work launched on bridge, road projects in Kapisa

Apr 13, 2016 - 16:53

MAHMOOD RAQI (Pajhwok): Construction work on separate roads measuring 21.5 kilometres and a large bridge has been launched in central Kapisa province, an official said on Wednesday.

Qais Qaderi, the governor’s spokesman, told Pajhwok Afghan News a 14-km road in Kohistan-1, a 5-km road in the provincial capital, Mahmood Raqi, and a 2.5-km road in Kohistan-2 districts were being constructed.

A 140-metre long bridge on the Panjshir River was also being constructed in Kohistan-2 district to replace a wood-made bridge, he said.

He said the bridge and the roads would help connect Kapisa’s transit route with Parwan and Panjsher provinces and the Kabulinfo-icon-Jalalabad highway through Tagab and Sarobi districts.

Provincial Rural Development and Rehabilitation director Hayatullah Farhang told Pajhwok Afghan News the projects would cost 180 million afghanis being given by the Rural Development Ministry. He said the projects would take six months to complete.

A resident of Kohistan district, Ziaur Rahman, said the projects would not only resolve people’s transportation problem but also help them find jobs.
