Launch of Township project for 50,000 people

Work on a township in the Zarin area of the Yakawlang district of central Bamyan province was inaugurated by the vice president, Mohammad Karim Khalili.

With a capacity of housing for 50,000 people, the township would have all facilities, such as commercial and residential areas, a park and a school, said the Urban Development Minister Hassan Abdul Hai.

The project is designed by the Urban Development Ministry and would be completed in 15 years.

The township is being built in accordance with international standards.

“We hope the township would meet the accommodation needs of the residents,” said Mr. Khalili.

Yakawlang is one of the densely-populated districts of Bamyan, where Afghanistan’s first-ever National Park Band-i-Amir is also situated.The vice president set free in the park two eagles caught by the area people. “It is the Afghanistan’s National Park, thus no one should hunt birds and animals here.”
