Agreement Signed for Torghundi-Herat Railway Design

The Afghanistan Railway Authority signed a survey and design agreement for the Torghundi-Herat railway with a domestic company.

The survey and design process for this railway, which extends from Torghundi port to Rabat Parian near Herat city, is expected to be completed within three months.

Abdul Bari Sediqi, deputy of the Afghanistan Railway Authority, said: "Once the Torghundi-Herat railway is connected to the airport, the next plans of the Afghanistan Railway Authority are to extend this line towards Farah, Helmand, Kandahar, Spin Boldak, and Chaman, enabling us to connect to Pakistan's railway. This will establish bilateral regional transportation links."

The Afghanistan Railway Authority assures that the construction of this railway will commence after the survey and design phase is completed.

According to this authority, the practical construction work on this railway is also set to begin.

Sultan Ahmad Sarwari, the head of the contracting company, said: "Our team will arrive in Herat from Russia this week. We will conduct an initial and final survey to determine the length of this line. Subsequently, we will focus on the survey and design work."

Local officials in Herat state that the implementation of the Torghundi-Herat railway project will bring economic transformation to the province.

Noor Ahmad Islam Jar, the governor of Herat, said: "Herat will become a crossroads for goods traveling from northern Asia to southern Asia and vice versa. This is a blessing from Almighty Allah for the people of Afghanistan, especially for the people of Herat."

The Torghundi-Herat railway is recognized as one of the main railway routes in the country, connecting Afghanistan to Central Asia, Russia, and China.

Dozens of wagons carrying imported goods from various countries arrive daily at the Torghundi station on the border between Afghanistan and Turkmenistan.
