The Kabul Municipality with the financial cooperation of AWCC launched a program of formally posting the names of streets, houses, and lanes on street signs so that pedestrians and motorists can quickly find addresses, it was announced on Monday.
The streets and houses of a city like Kabul, having more than four million populations, are without address and location street signs, causing deep problems for the government and citizens.
Based on an agreement signed last year, the Afghan Wireless Communication Company (AWCC) will financially help the Kabul municipality to make signs for formal posting of street names and house numbers to help people more easily navigate the city.
This program was formally started from Wazir Akbar Khan, district 6 of Kabul, during a ceremony attended by Kabul Mayor, AWCC President Amin Ramin and several other government officials including some members of the Parliament.
Thanking AWCC officials for assisting the program, Kabul Mayor Muhammad Younis Noandesh said that all streets and houses of Kabul would have signs providing accurate information within the next two years.
AWCC President Amin Ramin placed a strong value the program, saying the benefits will be enjoyed by citizens and businesses as it will improve the flow of commerce. He also said that it would improve the economical climate of Kabul and would help both the social and security sectors.
At the conclusion, AWCC presented appreciation letters to Kabul Mayor and the municipality officials for their effective service to the people of Kabul.
