Bishkek, April 26 / Kabar /. Today, residents of Kara-Kulja District marked the opening of the Kok-Jar-Sai bridge in 1-May village which provides access to one of the largest pastures in Osh Oblast – spanning over 90,000 hectares of pasture and benefitting 8,000 people. This grazing area had been inaccessible until now as the previous bridge was destroyed by heavy rains and mud flows. This new passage facilitates access to this pasture which is an important source of local livelihoods.
Speaking at the opening ceremony, Mr. Asylbek Jeenbekov noted, “I am delighted that this project was completed through a partnership between the surrounding communities, the local government alongside reliable development partners such as the British Government and the Aga Khan Development Network. I am confident that access to this pasture will have a meaningful and positive impact on the local communities”.
