Kupwara-Machil, Gurez-Bandipora roads still closed

Srinagar, Nov 14 (UNI) The Kupwara-Machil and Gurez-Bandipora roads in north Kashmir remained closed on Thursday since November 6 due to accumulation of snowfall and slippery road conditions.

An official of Police Control Room (PCR), Kupwara, told UNI that due to accumulation of snow, traffic on different routes, leading to far flung and remote areas, including near Line of Control (LoC), remained suspended since November 6.

“The sky is cloudy and there is a forecast for fresh snowfall from today till November 16,” he said, adding Kupwara-Keran and Kupwara-Karnah roads are through for traffic.

The PCR official said Kupwara-Machil roads remained closed due to accumulation of snow and slippery road conditions. “Roads leading to dozens of far flung and remote villages also remained closed due to snow,” he said.

Meanwhile, road to border areas of Gurez, Neeru and dozens of other areas from Bandipora also remained closed due to heavy snowfall. The road has been closed on November 6 morning 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 used to shut for six winter months in the past. The government has already approved a tunnel at Razdan pass to make it an all weather road.
