Engineers of the Imperial Watch report that they have fully completed a project that was started in the middle of 626 ATA and fully funded by the Empire: Namely, the reconstruction of Zahir Road.
Redeveloped as a fully functional smooth-cobbled highway, this long stretch of road is being heralded as a proud example of modern engineering and innovation. It is wide enough to support four caravans side-by-side (two on the left, two on the right) at any one time, perfectly straight, and built entirely upon an isosceles trapezium-shaped dyke to reduce the risk of flooding from the moors surrounding the Hegdehem/Fanghill regions.
Furthermore, the highway now features parallel rows of trees that flank the road on both sides, providing further protection from heavy flooding while offering sheltered protection from any brigands that may attempt to spy upon passing trade caravans from within the shadows of the moors.
Nobles of House Zahir and various Merchants and Freelanders of trade guilds and caravans across the realm are praising the Imperial Watch for this accomplishment. Zahir Road runs east-west between the Imperial Throughfare and Hedgehem, west of Nillu Road, and then northwest-southeast between Hedgehem and Fanghill.
