SMEC has operated in Afghanistan since 1993. SMEC's first project in Afghanistan was a transport rehabilitation study. The project involved the preparation of an Action Plan for immediate rehabilitation of the transport sector in Afghanistan with particular reference to roads. A permanent office was opened in Kabul in 2005.
Since then, SMEC has been involved in an integrated water resource management program for the Balkh River, community flood management improvement in the Takhar province, preparation of detailed engineering designs for a number of road rehabilitation projects and independent administrative reform for the Civil Service Commission.
With experience in the Transport, Water, Hydropower and Energy, Social Development and Government and Advisory Services sectors in Afghanistan, SMEC is currently involved in the Hairatan to Mazar-e-Sharif Railway Development Project. This project involves the upgrade of Hairatan railway station and yard, 80km of track from Hairatan to a suitable location near Mazar-e-Sharif airport and a transhipment terminal including a junction arrangement. SMEC is providing design review and construction supervision services.
