Some drivers and residents of southern provinces said the Kabul-Kandahar Highway is in ruins as it has remained untouched in terms of reconstruction for the past many years.
The drivers said rains, floods and explosions have damaged the highway while increasing the number of traffic incidents in different parts of the road.
The 557-kilometer highway is part of a mega ring road in the country built in 2002 from the international community’s aid.
The Ministry of Public Works meanwhile said it has allocated budget for maintenance of 235 kilometers of roads in the country’s highways.
