About Afghanistan Railway Authority:

Afghanistan’s infrastructure was largely destroyed during the Soviet invasion, civil conflicts after 1979, and poor maintenance since then. In more than 30 years of conflict virtually no development took place, leaving a huge infrastructure deficit. After 2002, Afghanistan planned to develop major infrastructure projects such as the national rail network, electrical systems whose demands are increasing by 25 per cent annually, national road networks, dams and airfields, all critical issues for Afghanistan.
