Kunduz’s main bridge destroyed by  Taliban soon to be reconstructed

Afghan Ministry of Defense has informed that reconstruction work of Alchin bridge, the main bridge connecting the northern provinces with the Sher Khan port in northern Afghanistan, has kicked off.

The bridge was completely destroyed by the Taliban militants in their recent operations in Kunduz. The Taliban took control of the key Khanabad district last week, but Afghan forces recaptured the district after hours of fierce clashes.

The 300 meter-long Alchin Bridge connected the northernmost provinces with the city of Sher Khan. Located near the Afghan – Tajik border, Sher Khan is one of the main transport, logistic and commercial hubs between Afghanistan’s northern provinces and the States of Central Asia.
