Afghanistan, Tajikistan, Turkmenistan to begin technical research on the railway project

railway 2Afghan Ministry of Public Affairs said technical research on the Afghanistan-Tajikistan-Turkmenistan railway project would begin soon.

Deputy Public Affairs Minister Eng. Ahmadshah Waheed said the 231km railway would be built within Afghanistan’s soil.

President Hamid Karzai conferred on this project on Monday with Turkmen Foreign Minister Rasheed Mordav during his visit in Turkmenistan.

The three countries’ presidents inked a trilateral framework agreement on the construction of a railroad in a tripartite meeting in Turkmenistan this March.

The Asian Development Bank has pledged to fund the construction of the railroad after the cost and design of the project is completed.

The project is expected to initiate in 2015.

This will be Afghanistan’s second railroad once it is completed. Currently, the only railroad operating in Afghanistan is the Hairatan-Mazar railroad.
