Afghanistan: Hairatan to Mazar-e-Sharif Railway Project

Afghanistan is a landlocked country facing tough sociopolitical and physical challenges. At the time of project preparation, Hairatan was Afghanistan’s main dry and river port, accounting for close to 50% of its total imports. However, an existing rail line between Termez in Uzbekistan and Hairatan did not have a rail link into Afghanistan. Freight into Afghanistan and beyond had to be off-loaded and reloaded into trucks at Hairatan. This process was costly and slow and limited volume flows. Removing this bottleneck was considered an urgent task.

The extension of the Termez–Hairatan railway link into Mazar-e-Sharif in Afghanistan was a top government priority. This railway line was expected to create a reliable, safe, and sustainable transport link between Afghanistan and its neighboring countries to increase regional cooperation and trade. It was also considered key to expanding job creation, investment, and ultimately poverty reduction in Afghanistan.
