Reconstruction of the Keshim-Faizabad Road
View of new paved road connecting Keshim, a district center, and Faizabad, the provincial capital, in Badkhsan province.
Reconstruction of the 103 kilometer road that connects Keshim with the provincial capital of Faizabad in Badakhshan Province was completed in November 2010.
Overview. The Keshim to Faizabad road lies predominantly along the east and south banks of the Keshim and Kokcha Rivers in the province of Badakhshan Province in northeastern Afghanistan, linking the communities of Keshim, a district center, and Faizabad, the provincial capital. The original road had experienced frequent floods, mudslides and localized rain and snow events which contributed greatly to the deterioration of the roadway, consisting primarily of a gravel track of variable width and a limited number of poorly maintained drainage structures.

The objective of the project was to reconstruct the existing roadway, drainage structures, and bridges. Road reconstruction was required to allow reliable year round mobility between the district centers and the capital.
