After a fresh two feet snowfall, vehicles having chains tied on tyres will only be allowed to ply on the road between Tangmarg and Gulmarg.

Traffic on the hilly road to ski resort was suspended from Tangmarg yesterday following more than a feet of snowfall. However, the authorities immediately pressed into service sophisticated machines and cleared the snow on the road later in the day.

There was more than seven inches of fresh snowfall during the night, forcing authorities to suspend the traffic again this morning, officials said. “Snow clearance operation has again been launched.”

However, because of slippery road conditions, it was decided to allow vehicle having chains tied with tyres to ply between Tangmarg and Gulmarg, they said.

Meanwhile, the upper heights, including Kongdori, Khilanmarg and Affarwat, the highest skiing point connected by Cable Car, received heavy to very heavy snowfall.
