Kabul (BNA) Salangs highway has been reopened to traffic. The highway had been closed to traffic on the threshold of the New Year due to heavy snowfalls, storm and avalanches. General Mohammad Rajab, head of preservation and observation for Salangs said on Thursday, “As a result of efforts made by workers of the directorate of preservation and observation for Salangs and directorates of public work of the neighboring provinces were able to reopen the high way to traffic after 72 hours blockage. Rajab added all vehicles including trucks were now able to cross the tunnel from morning to evening. He once again asked all the drivers to follow all the directions of the relevant officials and equip their vehicles with necessary winter equipments. While complaining of the relevant government institutions, General Rajab said based on the previous decision, they didn’t play any vital roles in providing facilities to passengers.
