Summary
This is an E-supplement to GAO-09-473SP. In its Afghanistan National Development Strategy, the Afghan Government, in conjunction with international donors, established the goal of completing a fully upgraded regional highway network by the end of 2008. The construction of the regional highways was a top road reconstruction priority of the Afghan government and international donors, as these roads were expected to foster regional trade and contribute to Afghanistan's economic development. The United States and two other donors committed more than $1.5 billion for the over-3,200-kilometers-long regional highway network and had completed about 60 percent (1,954 kilometers) of these highways as of February 2008. The United States, through the Agency for International Development (USAID), had completed the construction of the 715 kilometers of the regional highways it funded. In addition, it also managed the construction for the 115-kilometer-long Saudi-funded section, which is complete. As of February 2008, construction of an additional 29 percent (932 kilometers) of the regional highway network was ongoing and donors committed funding but had yet to start construction of the remaining 11 percent (354 kilometers). Completion of at least 300 kilometers of the regional highway network was not expected until December 2009, in part because funding was not committed until September 2006
