CHAREKAR (Pajhwok): After a 30-hour closure due to heavy snowfall, the vital Salang Highway has been reopened to traffic, officials in central Parwan province said on Sunday.

Lt. Gen. Mohammad Rajab, the highway maintenance head, told Pajhwok Afghan News the highway was reopened after hectic efforts at around 5:00 pm.

Snowfall, he said, had occurred on 28 locations of northern as well as southern Salang. The roads were cleared of snow thanks to the efforts put by the maintenance department’s personnel, he added.

The strategic highway of Salang connecting northern Afghanistaninfo-icon to central parts was closed two days back because of incessant snowfall.
