Afghan government to build small airports in remote districts

in Afghan Business

In order to tackle the problem of road blockages in remote districts, the Afghan government is planning to build small airports in remote districts of the country.

“Districts such as Arghestan of Badakhshan, Jaghori of Ghazni and Lahl wa Sarjangal district of Ghor province are the remote districts, we plan to start the work in the near future,” said Aviation Minister Dawood ali Najafizada on Monday.

Roads in remote distracts are usually in a poor condition and become impassable during the harsh winters.

The Senate Economics Committee has welcomed the plan and has given their commitment to assist and ensure the provision of all necessary facilities.

The construction of these airports are expected to help provide emergency relief services during the cold winters and the flashfloods of spring as the roads to such area are often closed or destroyed due to heavy snowfall, landslides or the demolition of bridges and roads in floods.

Residents of remote districts have often complained about the delay of aid to these areas at times of crisis.
