Bagrami is a town situated very close to Kabul at 34°29′28″N 69°16′32″E / 34.4911°N 69.2756°E / 34.4911; 69.2756 at 1797 m altitude. The population is 31,680 (2007 calculation). The road to Kabul is not bad and the city can be reached in 30 minutes, so Bagrami is becoming a suburb. The Bagrami Industrial Park is almost ready and this is one of the major projects for the economy of the region. In 2010 the town also harboured a shanty town of mud-built huts from refugees escaping the violence of the Taliban insurgency in the southern provinces of Afghanistan. [1]
