SRINAGAR: Days after reopening, the administration on Tuesday has decided to close Bandipora—Gurez road till further orders in north Kashmir’s Bandipora district.
“Traffic movement on Bandipora Gurez road shall remain suspended on 15-03-2022 till further orders,” news agency KNO quoted officials as having said.
However, it was not immediately known why the instructions were passed by the authorities.
Last Saturday, the authorities allowed one-way traffic movement on 85–km long Bandipora-Gurez, after it remained closed for the winter months due to the accumulation of heavy snow.
Pertinently, the Gurez area remains cut off from the rest of the Kashmir valley for the winter months due to the accumulation of snow on the road.
