Afghan engineers inspect roadways

An engineer from the Helmand Provincial Governor’s Technical Team checks the depth of the asphalt on a major roadway in Sangin District June 23, 2013. The depth check was part of an inspection ordered by the provincial governor to check for quality assurance. "The provincial governor has taken a keen interest to ensure the standard of the road is fit for purpose and will provide the people of the Upper Gereshk Valley with a long term solution to their transport needs,” said British Army Maj. Dave Gibson, the Specialist Team of Royal Engineers commanding officer. “It was successful because the (Provincial Governor’s Technical Team) found the construction of the road that they had checked conformed to the specification they had agreed to.”

The Provincial Reconstruction Team-Kunar engineers did a final quality assurance and quality check on the road prior to the ceremony to ensure the Kunar Construction Company did a good job building the road. The project took nearly one year and approximately $1 million to complete. The hope for the new road is it will continue to spur economic development and job growth in the Kunar Province capital. More than 50 provincial leaders and tribal elders gathered at the ceremony site after the QA/QC check to do the ribbon cutting ceremony.
