KABULinfo-icon (Pajhwok): Reconstructioninfo-icon work on two roads in Kart-i-Seh and Kart-i-Char areas of capital Kabul has been completed and the roads were inaugurated on Monday.

Kabul acting mayor Mohammad Aslam Akrami said the 5 and 3 kilometers roads took 22 months to be reconstructed.

The roads cost $4.5 million paid by the Worldinfo-icon Bank (WB) under the Afghanistaninfo-icon Reconstruction Trust Fund (ARTF).

A 15 and four-metre wide footpaths have also been constructed besides flower pots, railings, lights and traffic signs as part of the project, Akrami said.

Mohammad Khan, the first deputy Chief Executive Officer (CEO), who attended the inauguration ceremony, said the roads, key routes of Kabul city, would help resolve problems of a large number of people.

“Kabul is our shared home, we all together should work to rebuild it and keep it clean,” he said.

However, Khan criticised the acting mayor for what he said a bad condition of most of Kabul roads and said rain waters had no proper exit system and had been a major cause of roads’ destruction.

But the acting mayor said the Kabul municipality had asphalted 100 kilometers of roads during the ongoing solar yearinfo-icon and had the plan to construct another 120 kilometers of roads next solar year.

Akrami said preparatory process to construct a canal transferring rainwater outside of Kabul city had been completed and practical work on the project would be launched in early next solar year.
