Road to Karnah reopens; border towns of Keran, Machil, Gurez remain cutoff

Srinagar, Jan 24 (UNI) Roads to dozens of far flung and remote villages, including border town of Keran, reopened on Friday after remaining closed for three days due to slippery road conditions and accumulation of snow.

However, three main roads Kupwara-Machil, Kupwara-Keran and Gurez-Bandipora in north Kashmir remained closed due to accumulation of snowfall and slippery road conditions.

“Snow has been cleared on Kupwara-Karnah road and traffic was restored since early this morning,” an official of Police Control Room (PCR), Kupwara, told UNI over phone.

However, he said clearance operation to restore traffic on Kupwara-Keran and Kupwara-Machil roads continued on war-footing to clear 6 to 7 feet of snow. Border towns of Keran, Machil and dozens of far flung and remote villages remained cut off from the district headquarter since January 13 due heavy snowfall.

Razdan pass, connecting Gurez, Neeru and dozens of other areas near LoC with district headquarters Bandipora, remained closed due to accumulation of snow and fresh snowfall.

A police official told UNI that about 5 feet of snow was accumulated at some places on the road. “About 80 per cent of the road has been damaged and it is highly unlikely that these areas will be reconnected to district headquarter before March,” he added.

The government has approved a tunnel at Razdan pass to make it an all weather road.
