Salang Pass reopens after storm

Salang Pass reopens after storm

Mar 09, 2013 - 14:04

CHARIKARinfo-icon (PANinfo-icon): The Salang highway that connects Kabulinfo-icon with northern provinces, is open again on Saturday after a paralysing snow storm led to its closure for a day in central Parwan province, an official said.

The highway was closed Friday afternoon for traffic after the storm brought snow to the region, leaving hundreds of passengers stranded in vehicles on both sides of the busy pass.

The route reopened at 12pm after the threat of further storm and snow avalanches subsided, the pass maintenance officer Yawar Samiullah told Pajhwok Afghan News.
