Logar roads turned into ruins

logarAbout 70% of the roads in central Logar province have been damaged, said residents.

Heavy snow and rainfall, landmines and heavy vehicles, were cited as the main reasons for the shabby conditions of the roads.

The residents alleged that the government and the dwellers had failed to preserve the roads built with foreign aid.

Meanwhile, provincial council secretary Abdul Khaliq Kharkhwa acknowledged the Gardez-Kabul highway and other major roads’ dilapidated condition and alleged the public works department was rife with corruption and had been unable to preserve the roads.

 The department Head Abdul Baqi Stanikzai complained about the lack of sufficient funds for reconstructing the roads.

The director said some roads had been built under agreements between foreign troops and private firms and his department had been given no authority to look after the projects.
