Erbil Governor Reviews Road Projects

By John Lee.

Nawzad Hadi, Governor of Erbil, has visited the Kore-Qandil road project to review progress.

On his visit Mr. Hadi was accompanied by Deputy Governor Tahir Abdullah, general directors of roads, municipality and water resources in Erbil, in addition to the Mayor of Shaqlawa.

They started their visit at the Kore-Qandil road, a 49-km highway being built by the Yuksel Company at a cost of $220 million. During their visit the team insisted on finishing the project in the current year, including the tunnels at Sorki and Mirawa.

Later they visited the towns of Harir and Basirma where they checked 50,000 m2 of asphalting; another 75,000 m2 of tarmacking is ready to be carried out. They also visited the 3-billion IQD mobile electric generator which will supply all electricity needs in the Harir and Basirma area.

    Hello,

    I read this news, see below, and the numbers do not add up!! I think you meant to say $22 million and NOT $220 million. It seems VERY expensive price for a 49KM road.
