Srinagar, Nov 16: Border towns of Keran and Karnah besides dozens of other far-flung and remote villages near the Line of Control (LoC) remained closed for the second day on Saturday due to fresh snowfall during the past 24 hours.
Meanwhile, the Kupwara-Machil and Gurez-Bandipora roads in north Kashmir remained closed on Saturday since November 6 due to accumulation of snowfall and slippery road conditions.
The Kupwara-Keran and Kupwara-Karnah roads remained closed for the second day on Saturday due to about one foot of fresh snowfall on Friday, an official of Police Control Room (PCR), Kupwara, told over the phone.
The upper reaches in the district received fresh snowfall while rain lashed plains, including Kupwara town during the past 36 hours, he said.
The police official said that traffic will be resumed only after improvement in the weather and clearance of snow on these roads.
He said due to fresh snowfall on already accumulated snow, traffic on different routes, leading to far flung and remote areas, including near LoC, remained suspended since November 6.
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 fresh snowfall since Thursday night," the PCR official 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," an official 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.
