Uninterrupted Power Supply to Kabul Resumes Yesterday

Uninterrupted Power Supply to Kabul Resumes Yesterday

KABUL - The power supply problem will be resolved with extension of a permanent transmission line to Kabul by Wednesday evening, authorities say.
Da Afghanistan Breshna Shirkat (DABS) said work on fixing a permanent power transmission line in Salang would be completed later in the day.
Last month, power supply to 11 provinces, including Kabul, was cut after a pylon was blown up in Salang area. The power utility later temporarily reconnected the power cables.
Wahidullah Tawhidi, spokesman for DABS, told Pajhwok Afghan News technical experts had been busy over the past few days to repair the destroyed pylon.
He promised electricity supply to the nation’s capital would resume permanently by the evening.
A resident of Mirwais Maidan area told Pajhwok: “Previously, there was loadshedding in the winter only. But now we don’t have electricity for hours even in the summer. Despite tall claims, the government could not resolve the power issue even in Kabul in the past 15 years.” (Pajhwok)
