Trans Hindukush Road Connectivity Project (THRCP)

Improving Afghanistan’s infrastructure is essential for accelerating economic growth and poverty alleviation. Despite very significant investment during the past decade, the country requires much additional investment in transport infrastructure to ensure basic service delivery and enhance the quality of life of its growing population, and also to reduce constraints on market access, regional trade and economic growth. The functioning of Afghanistan’s economy and the country's national integration depend to a large degree on reliable road connections across the Hindukush mountain range, which stretches from the northeast of Afghanistan to the center of the country and thereby establishes a physical barrier between the two key economic regions which are also the most highly populated areas.
The Government of Afghanistan has obtained funding of US$ 250 million from the World Bank (International Development Association – IDA) to develop, fund and help manage a project to ensure reliable trans-Hindukush connectivity. This objective will achieve through (i) rehabilitation of the 86 km Salang Pass and development of the 152 km Baghlan to Bamyan (B2B) road to become a viable alternative to the Salang Pass, and (ii) to establish suitable arrangements for the management, maintenance and operation of those two roads. The objective of this project can only be achieved through an integral project which combines the above-mentioned elements.
The THRCP project is being delivered by a government led Project Management Team (PMT) and a new Construction Supervision Unit (CSU) has been set up to undertake site supervision of all associated contracts. In parallel, the client has also appointed an international Implementation Consultant (IC) team to provide oversight and support development and delivery of the project.
On behalf of MPW, the PMT THRCP project is seeking a qualified Senior Human Resource Associate
