[AFG] Roads in Afghanistan

Do anyone here know if there is any motorways in Afghanistan? Or do they have something similar to motorways like highways or dual carriageways? Maybe Kabul have a motorway?

How do the roads in Afghanistan look like?

Looking at Google Earth and Panoramio pictures there are no motorways in Afghanistan, there are some dual carriageways (or more like streets) in Kabul.

Kabul-Gardez highway U/C in 2005:


Highway 1 or A01 (Jalalabad-Kabul-Kandahar-Delaram-Herat-Islam Qala-Mazar) This is here is just outside Kabul:


One more photo of Highway 1 (too large to be linked here):

Probably priority roads are links to neighbouring countries and are developed in order to ease Nato supply lines.

Btw,this blog (Travels in Afghanistan) has good selection of photos from 1974-1975. Obviously,only fraction of those roads have survived,but it's still a interesting to see previous road network there.

Example (Kabul 1975):

Am I right when I say that people in Iran and Afghanistan understand each other (Farsi/Dari )?

Yes you are right. The difference between Farsi and Dari is like the difference between British and American English. And also Tajik language, which only uses cyrilic alphabet.

yeah the font is similar too.
for example:


However the color they use for normal roads is different from Iran's which is green.

VERY interesting thread! I've often wondered about Afghanistan roads and highways over the past few years wondering what was over there... as a curiosity cause of having friends who served there during the Afghanistan war.

Always nice to learn about roadways in other countries...

Iran restarted constructing "Qala Kah Road" connecting Farah to Iranian South Khorasan
120 km long project, 54 km of which already completed
It will be the 3rd Iran-Afghanistan road link after Harat-Taybad and Delaram-Zaranj-Zabol (AH71)

url]http://www.dailytimes.com.pk/national/05-Jan-2016/pakistan-to-build-peshawar-kabul-motorway[/url]



ISLAMABAD - Government is planning to build a motorway from Peshawar city to the Afghan capital Kabul.

The four-lane road via Jalalabad and Torkham covers 265 kilometers and the land acquisition process will be initiated after the finalisation of the alignment, according to a report by an English daily newspaper.

The motorway project will not only improve connectivity between the two neighboring countries and Central Asian states but would also bring economic prosperity in the adjacent areas, the report said citing an identified official from Pakistan’s National Highway Authority.

The motorway would be divided into three parts, 50 km long Peshawar-Torkham, 76km Torkham-Jalalabad and 139 km Jalalabad-Kabul sections, based on the report.
