Rural Rehabilitation and Development Minister Wais Ahmad Barmak said the 8km road connected as many as 45 villages in the region.

Costing USD 850,000, the reconstruction of the Sayad-Jamal Agha road would be funded by the peace high council and implemented by the Ministry of Rural Rehabilitation and Development.

He added that the Ancho Bridge connecting Kapisa and Parwan would also be built.

“The government has allocated USD 4mn for reconstruction and expanding of public services in Kapisa province,” said Minister Barmak.

During the past few years, approximately USD 30mn has been spent towards the reconstruction of Kapisa province.
