FARAH CITY (Pajhwok): A 33-kilometre road that connects Juwin district of western Farah province with the provincial capital was put into service after being asphalted on Wednesday.

Public Works Minister Mahmood Balegh, Farah Governor Dr. Mohammad Arif Shah Jahan and provincial council members were present on the occasion of the project launch.

Balegh said the nine-metre wide road was completed at a cost of 471 million afghanis from the Public Works Ministry’s budget.

Bismillah Juwini, a resident of Juwin district, told Pajhwok Afghan News the road project would help reduce the journey time from three hours to one hour.

He said it took three hours for local residents to reach Farah City when the road was not asphalted.

Governor Mohammad Arif Shah Jahan thanked the Public Works Ministry and asked the government to carry out more such projects in the province.

Eng. Mohammad Salem Farahi, the public works director, said construction work on another road from Farah City to Anardara district was about complete.
