Railway to Revive Silk Road

The project to connect Iran to Afghanistan through railway is reaching its final stages inside Iran after the completion of Rashtkhaar station in the northeastern province of Khorasan-e Razavi. The project in Afghanistan, however, is pending, awaiting the Asian Development Bank’s $165 million grant. The 900-km railway line will connect Chabahar port in southeast of Iran to the mineral-rich Hajigak region of Afghanistan. It will support mining projects, which would drive economic growth in underdeveloped Afghanistan.
