The Mughal Road reopened Sunday after five months was again closed on Monday after landslides hit the Pir Ki Gali area.

The state roads and buildings department said that the road will be resumed for traffic shortly after necessary repairing.

The Mughal Road connects the Jammu region with the valley through Poonch, Rajouri and Shopian districts. During winter, heavy snowfall forces its closure.

Originally built by Mughal emperors, the road for centuries remained closed before rebuilt in 2005 as another road link between the landlocked valley and rest of India.

The new dispensation led by Mufti Muhammad Sayeed is mulling to make this road ‘all-weather’ alternate highway.
