Kabul’s residents are starting to find it easier to get around certain areas as the city’s urban infrastructure is upgraded through the construction of wider lanes, improved median strips, pedestrian sidewalks, proper drainage systems, and lighting. *** VIDEO TRANSCRIPT Mohammad Hossain is a municipal worker in central Kabu. He remembers a time when the central Silo Road was dusty, dirty, and unsafe. Today, Silo Road is a model of urban transportation, thanks to the Kabul Urban Transport Efficiency Improvement project. The project, implemented by Kabul Municipality, aims to improve urban transportation in Kabul city, easing traffic and pedestrian flow. The project results can be seen on busy Silo Road, with wide, asphalted lanes, an improved median strip, concrete sidewalks for pedestrians, a proper drainage system and street lamps. With funding support from the Afghanistan Reconstruction Trust Fund, the project has completed four infrastructural projects in Kabul, and will continue through 2019, improving transit, sanitation, and safety across the capital city.

"Demining Afghanistan" is an innovative public-private partnership between the United Nations Mine Action Service (UNMAS) and the International Road Transport Union (IRU) aiming to improve road security and safety in Afghanistan by removing landmines and explosive remnants of war around roads linking Kabul to its Central Asian neighbouring countries. This diaporama is a short visual journey through this successful 10-month project and shows how it has helped bring the war-torn country of Afghanistan from aid to trade by international road transport.

JALALABAD, AFGHANISTANThe American military is currently investigating a cargo plane crash that killed at least 14 people in eastern Afghanistan. The New York Times reports that the Air Force C-130J transport plane crashed shortly after midnight on Friday as it was taking off in Afghanistan's Jalalabad Airport. The plane was carrying six U.S. military personnel and five civilian contractors, all of whom were killed. At least three Afghan civilians are also reported to have died in connection with the crash. There is no immediate indication of what caused the crash, but U.S. officials have remarked that there were no reports of enemy fire at the time of the incident, according to The Guardian. A statement issued from the 455th Air Expeditionary Wing at Bagram Airfield referred to it as an accident, amid Taliban claims that their militants shot the plane down. Reuters reports the crash came hours after Afghan troops were able to retake the northern city of Kunduz from Taliban forces, three days after losing it to the militants. ----------------------------------------­--------------------- Welcome to TomoNews, where we animate the most entertaining news on the internets.

Addressing reporters after the signing ceremony, Rouhani said the event marks a historic occasion with regard to relationship between the three countries. He added that the deal between Tehran, New Delhi and Kabul sends the message that countries in the region can make progress through cooperation and tapping into regional opportunities. “Today’s document is not only an economic document, rather [it] is a political document and a regional document and the document’s message is that regional countries should use regional opportunities to develop and strengthen the whole of the region,” Rouhani said. He emphasized that Iran-India-Afghanistan cooperation will serve the interests of the entire region, stressing that Chabahar Port epitomizes such cooperation.

Air transport in Afghanistan is provided by the national carrier, Ariana Afghan Airlines (AAA), and by private companies such as Afghan Jet International, East Horizon Airlines, Kam Air, Pamir Airways, and Safi Airways. Airlines from a number of countries also provide flights in and out of the country. These include Air India, Emirates, Gulf Air, Iran Aseman Airlines, Pakistan International Airlines, and Turkish Airlines. The country has four international airports: Herat International Airport, Hamid Karzai International Airport (formerly Kabul International Airport), Kandahar International Airport, and Mazar-e Sharif International Airport. There are also around a dozen domestic airports with flights to Kabul or Herat. Rail As of 2014, the country has only two rail links, one a 75 km line from Kheyrabad to the Uzbekistan border and the other a 10 km long line from Toraghundi to the Turkmenistan border. Both lines are used for freight only and there is no passenger service as of yet. There are various proposals for the construction of additional rail lines in the country. In 2013, the presidents of Afghanistan, Turkmenistan, and Uzbekistan attended the groundbreaking ceremony for a 225 km line between Turkmenistan-Andkhvoy-Mazar-i-Sharif-Kheyrabad. The line will link at Kheyrabad with the existing line to the Uzbekistan border. Plans exist for a rail line from Kabul to the eastern border town of Torkham, where it will connect with Pakistan Railways. There are also plans to finish a rail line between Khaf, Iran and Herat, Afghanistan. Roads Traveling by bus in Afghanistan remains dangerous due to careless and intoxicated bus drivers as well as militant activities. The buses are usually older model Mercedes-Benz and owned by private companies. Serious traffic accidents are common on Afghan roads and highways, particularly on the Kabul–Kandahar and the Kabul–Jalalabad Road. Newer automobiles have recently become more widely available after the rebuilding of roads and highways. They are imported from the United Arab Emirates through Pakistan and Iran. As of 2012, vehicles more than 10 years old are banned from being imported into the country. The development of the nation's road network is a major boost for the economy due to trade with neighboring countries. Postal services in Afghanistan are provided by the publicly owned Afghan Post and private companies such as FedEx, DHL, and others.
