(MENAFN- Pajhwok Afghan News) CHARIKAR (Pajhwok): The Salang highway - linking the capital Kabul with northern Afghanistan - was reopened for traffic on Tuesday morning, an official said.
Lt. Gen. Mohammad Rajab, the highway maintenance commander, told Pajhwok Afghan News that heavy traffic was allowed through the tunnel after heavy snowfall in the morning.
The highway had reopened both for light and heavy vehicles, he said, asking drivers and passengers to observe security precautions and comply with traffic regulations.
