KABULinfo-icon (Pajhwok): The operation to clear the Salang Highway from snow is ended and the strategic route is now reopened to traffic on Saturday, an official said.

The Salang Highway which connects Kabul with nine northern provinces, has been closed for traffic after avalanches closed the road following days of heavy snowfall.

Lt. Gen. Rajab Ali, the Salang Highway maintenance head, told Pajhwok Afghan News after hectic efforts, the road has been reopened and let traffic move from north to south.

Based on schedule, cargo vehicles could use the route on Sundays, Tuesdays and Thursdays from north to south and on Saturdays, Mondays and Wednesdays from south to north, Ali said.

He asked drivers to abide by traffic rules and drive carefully in order to avoid any mishap. The Salang highway is notorious for tragedies in winter due to heavy snowfalls and cold weather.
