It’s reported that on June 7, initial survey of railway from Herat to Torgondai had began starting construction in Afghanistan. Project is predicted to cost about 1.6 million dollars.

Besides, Uzbekistan prepares to extend railway to Mazar-e Sharif, Afghanistan, which aims to strengthen two countries’ relationship and increase interconnection projects. President Ghani believed that both countries would expect to get benefit from it.
Construction of railway can not only be convenient for people’s traveling, but also bring regional economic development. So railway construction should pay more attention to quality and security. Proportion of plateau and mountainous region in Afghanistan is large, and railway is usually constructed at place far from downtown. It has little influence from external condition, terrain is one of them. To prevent friable rocks sliding down, slope reinforcement should be strengthened.
Rock bolt can fasten weak, loose and unstable rock soil body at stable rock stratum, it can enhance rock body’s bearing capacity, prevent displacement. The bigger anchoring force has been provided, the bigger frictional resistance will be got and the higher integrity degree is.
