Call to repair damaged Kabul-Balkh highway

Call to repair damaged Kabul-Balkh highway

May 22, 2014 - 20:27

MAZAR-I-SHARIF (Pajhwok): Drivers and passengers on Thursday asked the government to reconstruct the damaged portion of the Kabulinfo-icon-North Highway in the Tashqar Ghan area of northern Balkh province on a permanent basis.

Earlier in the month, flash floods washed away a large section of the highway, but the authorities moved quickly to create alternative route for traffic.

Mohammad Amin, a driver, was happy over the alternative road’s pavement, but said the diversion took extra time reaching Mazar-i-Sharif. He demanded a permanent solution to the problem.

The highway closure is blamed for a 50 percent decline in the revenue of Balkh Customs Department.
