Bridge Construction in Jurm District of Badakhshan

The Ministry of Rural Rehabilitation and Development officials say that a 32m-long bridge in the district of Jurm through the rural roads program of the Ministry was inaugurated on Saturday.

According to the Ministry of Public Works, the bridge will connect 3 districts of the province and approximately 90,000 residents will be able to use the bridge.

Badakhshan is one of the mountainous provinces of Afghanistan, with its 28 districts lacking connecting roads.

According to a resident, due to the damaged connecting roads, residents have faced many problems. Many patients have lost their lives due to failing to reach the hospital on time.

The bridge is built by local engineers with financial assistance from the World Bank.

The construction of the bridge started in 2010 and it completed this year.

The rural roads program of the Ministry of Rural Rehabilitation and Development has carried out several construction works in the province. According to the officials of the Ministry, the program has helped with solving many problems of the residents.

A number of Jurm District residents expressed their gratitude for the construction of the bridge and consider an important step in improving their lives.
