Dilapidated road a nuisance for Rahman Mina residents in Kabul city

rahman mina roadResidents of Rahman Mina of Kabul city have accused the Municipality of failing to fulfill its promises of construction the main road in the area.

A 4-km road in the area connects the Bagrami districts of Kabul with Logar province. The bumpy, dirty road has caused transportation and health problems to the residents in the area.

According to a resident, the Municipality was supposed to asphalt the road a year ago within three months.

Residents have blamed the Municipality for inattention towards the problems due to the rundown road and using the allocated budget for the road for other projects.

Meanwhile, Municipality officials have rejected the complaint as invalid and said uplift schemes including road projects are being implemented in a balanced way.

The bumpy road has also led to high transport fares and an increase in food prices.

“Drivers here charge two times higher fares than in areas where roads are asphalted,” Pajhwok Afghan News quotes a resident, Mohammad Naeem.

The municipality’s annual plan includes construction of 100 kilometers of roads in the city, including Rehman Mina area, according to Kabul Municipality spokesman Abdul Qadir Arzo.  He told Pajhwok Afghan News that 1500 kilometers of roads in the capital needed to be asphalted, with work on 500 kilometers already completed.
