In a welcoming move, the Taliban has started removing cement barricades erected on the streets of Kabul aimed at preventing attacks on the government facilities.

The process which started Sunday, August 22, the Kabul municipality personnel removed barriers erected in front of the defense ministry.

The barricades had dramatically narrowed the streets of Kabul and were said to be the biggest cause behind bumper-to-bumper traffic in the city which had created major problems for the citizens.

The barricades were not only put by the government in front of every government facility, but were also improvised by warlords, MPs, ministers, commanders, and foreign embassies and organizations so that they secure their residence.

The biggest city of Afghanistan-Kabul was also the most congested city in which it took hours in peak hours-eight to four- to drive a distance that would normally take minutes.

Clogging the roads for 20 to 30 minutes for a high-ranking official, MP, minister, or commander to cross was another problem for the folks of Kabul which has not been noticed since the Taliban took power.

The initiative was firstly conducted in Jalalabad city of eastern Nangarhar province after the Taliban took over the province.
