Contract for road projects worth 2 billion afs signed

KABUL (Pajhwok): The Ministry of Public Works (MoPW) has signed a contract for five road construction projects worth two billion afghanis with the private sector, an official said on Wednesday.

The contract for building more than 120-kilometre roads in Jawzjan, Sar-i-Pul, Ghazni, Takhar, Kabul, Logar and Daikundi provinces was signed between acting public works minister and representatives of private companies.

Second Vice-President Sarwar Danish, who was also president at Tuesday’s signing ceremony, said the government had a strong will to develop transport routes, particularly in less developed areas.

He added the Afghans would witness more progress in the area in the years ahead. Swift implementation of projects and their supervision were responsibility of the MoPW, which should closely monitor the quality of schemes, he stressed.

Addressing contracted companies, Danish said the government and the people of Afghanistan expected the projects would be implemented on schedule. Project quality would be given special attention, he hoped.

Eng. Yama Yari also stressed the government’s strong will for the development of routes across the country. He said the ministry would focus on quality implementation of the projects.

The MoPW would deal according to the law with the contracted companies in terms of quality and pace of project, the acting minister concluded.
