Shibergan-Sar-e-Pul Road Rehabilitation Project, Afghanistan

The Shibergan-Sar-e-Pul Highway of Afghanistan starts in the city of Shibergan, which is 150 km northeast of Mazar-i-Sharif, and ends in the city of Sar-e-Pul towards the south. The Shibergan-Sar-e-Pul Highway, the contract for which was awarded on 10 October 2004, was completed within the specified period on 21 November 2005. The project was designed as 2x1 within the scope of "secondary roads", which are under construction in Afghanistan, and constructed with a total road width of 8.00 m together with 1.00 m wide shoulders added to 3.00 m wide lanes. The superstructure of the highway consists of surface coating. 270 new culverts were constructed and 446 existing culverts were extended along the route.

Two bridges, which were designed to have steel beamed superstructure and 24 m and 20 m openings, were also constructed within the scope of the project. Some 208.000 m3 of soil works, 96.405 m3 of substratum and 77.438 m3 of foundation works and 422.648 m2 of surface coating was completed.

In addition to the main transportation arteries that are being constructed within the scope of the restructuring program of Afghanistan, which include roadways that are envisaged to encircle the country, this project constitutes an important step in terms of connecting the other main artery that is planned to pass through the country from north to south.
