Work on major highway in Khost province begins

roadConstruction work on the Khost-Ghulam Khan highway, the third most important border crossing point between Pakistan and Afghanistan, has officially begun in Khost province.

Governor Abdul Jabbar Naeemi told Pajhwok Afghan News (PAN) the project would take 17 months to complete and would address transportation problems of traders and commuters.

The project is funded by the United States of America at a total cost of USD 10.5 million.

The 25-km road is an important road for Khost because of the transit trade with Pakistan.

In an attempt to set up a proper transit system, a friendship gate on the border crossing would also be built.

Work on the establishment of  customs office is also in the progress since last year along the highway.

The Ghulam Khan is the third most important border crossing point between Pakistan and Afghanistan after Spin Boldak in Kandahar and Torkham in Nangahar.
