The Project comprised four components.
(i) Road infrastructure. Repair and rehabilitation of the 392-kilometer (km) section of Afghanistan's Ring Road from Pul-e-Khumri through Naibabad, Mazar-e-Sharif, and Sheberghan to Andkhoy; and the 55 km link to the Uzbekistan border from Naibabad to Hairatan. Consulting services were recruited for design review, supervision of civil work contracts, project management, and enhancing the maintenance capacity of the Ministry of Public Works (MPW).
