Residents protest wanting Herat-Maidan road paved

Dozens of residents of Herat, Ghor, Daikundi, Bamyan and Maidan Wardak protested in front of the national assembly, demanding the government to pave the Herat-Maidan highway as soon as possible.

The 700km highway starts from Herat and passes through Bamyan, Daikundi and Ghor to reach Behsud District of Maidan Wardak.

The protestors said they would continue their protest until the government met their demands.

The highway would reduce a distance of 400km from Kabul to Herat once paved. It is part of the major ring road of Afghanistan.

Afghanistan’s ring road is part of the 3360km main highway project connecting 16 provinces and major cities like Kabul, Mazar, Herat, Kandahar, Ghazni and Jalalabad.
