Busy at Bagram

At the former Soviet air base at Bagram on the Shomali plain, 70km north of Kabul, another similar development is well under way.

Work at Bagram has been in support of the coalition forces, principally about preparing camp structures for winter, ablution installation with septic tanks and soakaways and bulk fuel installations. A borrow pit has also been run, plus road construction and demining with mechanical clearance.

Here a US base is under construction that will support its Enduring Freedom operation to hunt down all Al Qaida and Taliban soldiers that are still in hiding. But should UK marines be called back, engineers must ensure their different needs are catered for by the new facilities.
