추가의 개발을 위한 자산 소유자들이 그들의 땅을 팔기를 거부하였다. 결국 계획은 실패하고 인프라구조는 빈곤하게 남았다.
<!-- ; for example, in 1973 only 13% of the houses had access to electricity and only at night. Lack of sanitary drinking water remained a major problem. The 15 meter deep wells had salty and awfully bad tasting water and the trenches had only twenty days running water in a month. To counteract this, there were water pools to preserve water for bad days to come every month.
== Education ==
There are about 1000 teachers and 40000 students in this small town. However, on the good side, there were two separate schools for boys and girls existing until 1990's. Among them stood the Tomb of Hazrat Baba Wali and its affiliated Madrasa or school that are considered very sacred by the Turkmens of the region and are a major attraction of local tourists.
== Economy and transport ==
The fact that the town is located on one of the biggest trade routes between the [[Uzbekistan]] and [[Turkmenistan]] does not help Andkui economically. The town recently got access to the outside world through the mobile phone thanks to ROSHAN GSM company. <br /> This town is located in a plain at the vicinity of the [[Shirin Tagab]] River, which irrigates the town and surrounding areas. The town itself and its few other villages are always in a severe semi-drought. Although the distance between [[Sheberghan]] and Andkhoy is not more than seventy km, the town is extremely remote and isolated from the mainstream developments of the region, as is [[Maimana]]. The roads to either Sheberghan (70 km) or Maimana (130 km) are underdeveloped and are considered the worst roads in all of Afghanistan.There is an airport 4 miles east of the town with gravel runway and access road to all weather highway.
