Construction work on key bridge in Nangarhar begins

kabul jalalabadNangarhar governor Maulvi Attaullah Ludin, provincial council members, tribal leaders and other officials inaugurated the construction work on a new design of the Saracha Bridge on the Jalalabad-Torkham highway.

The 140m long and 10m wide bridge would be constructed at a cost of USD 4.5mn provided by the United States.

According to the Pajhwok Afghan News (PAN), the bridge was destroyed two years ago by flood and replaced with a temporary iron bridge provided by the United States Agency for International Development (USAID).

Provincial public works director Eng. Gul Rassoul Faqir told PAN that the iron bridge, worth hundreds of thousands of dollars, would be used to replace a destroyed one wherever required.

Governor Ludin hailed construction of the bridge as one of the important projects to be implemented in Nangarhar and added that work on the second lane of Torkham-Jalalabad highway would be launched soon.

He said construction works on Jandarma and Farm bridges were in full swing and would be completed within a few months.
