Hamilton Road

   The Hamilton Road was originally built by Great Britain in the 1920s and 1930s as a strategic military highway to help facilitate the pacification of the Kurdish tribes. It runs from Irbil all the way to the Iranian frontier. Archibald M. Hamilton, for whom the highway is named, was a New Zealand engineer and also author of Road through Kurdistan (1937).
