Kupwara-Karnah road reopens, Keran, Machil Gurez still cut off

Srinagar, Nov 12 (UNI) One-way traffic was resumed on Kupwara to border town of Karnah after remaining suspended since Wednesday due to heavy snowfall.

However, dozens of far-flung and remote villages, including border towns of Keran and Machil besides Gurez remained cut off on Tuesday from their respective district and tehsil headquarters in north Kashmir due to accumulation of several feet of snow.

An official of Police Control Room (PCR), Kupwara, told UNI over the phone on Tuesday that due to accumulation of snow, traffic on different routes, leading to far flung and remote areas, including near LoC, remained suspended since Wednesday.

He said the district authorities put into service machines and men and put through the Kupwara-Karnah road. However, one-way traffic is allowed on the road which is still narrow as vehicles had to pass through snow walls on both sides. Traffic is allowed on rotational basis from Kupwara and Karnah to avoid any accident.
The PCR official said three main roads of Kupwara-Keran and Kupwara-Machil remained closed due to snow. ''The roads are very slippery and there is also threat of avalanches,'' he said, adding that the snow clearance operation has been started.
He said roads leading to dozens of far flung and remote villages also remained closed due to snow.
Meanwhile, the Razdan pass, connecting Gurez, Neeru and dozens of other areas near LoC in Bandipora district, also remained closed due to heavy snowfall. The road has been closed on Wednesday morning for any vehicular movement due to several feet of snow and slippery conditions. ''There was more than five feet of snow at Razdan pass,'' officials said.

The authorities have already pressed into service snow clearance machines and cutters to clear the snow and put through the road, which remained closed for six winter months in the past. The government has already approved a tunnel at Razdan pass to make it an all weather road.
