A newly-constructed bridge in southeastern Khost province would benefit thousands of residents, Governor Abdul Jabbar Naeemi said on Sunday.
The 60 metres long and eight metres wide bridge was completed in eight months at a cost of 25 million afghanis provided by the World Bank (WB), Naeemi told Pajhwok Afghan News.
Before the construction of the direly-needed facility, residents of remote villages had to remain disconnected from the provincial capital for days due to floods, he recalled.
Eng. Mamoor Shah, public works director, said the bridge had resolved the problem of people. Earlier in the week, work was launched on another bridge connecting Tani district with Khost City.
