About Trans-Hindukush Road Connectivity Project (THRCP/MOPW):

General Background of Project / Assignment

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 integrated project which combines the above-mentioned elements.

The THRCP project is being delivered by a government-led Project Management Team (PMT) and a new independent Construction Supervision Unit (CSU) has been established under the THRCP to undertake the responsibility of site Construction supervision of all THRCP-B2B 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 ANRA/MoT, the THRCP project is seeking for a qualified Resident Engineer (Roads) to support the CSU Deputy/Team leader in the supervision of the THRCP projects (B2B) civil works.
