Shandur road reopened

GHIZER, July 13: The Shandur road linking Gilgit-Baltistan with Chitral was reopened after 40 days of closure due to flooding early Saturday. The vital road had cut off after floods washed away about one kilometre portion of the road at Susut. Besides, two bridges were also damaged in the Ghizer area. The communication and works department took 40 days to rebuild the damaged portion of the road and restore traffic. Soon after reconstruction of the road, stranded vehicles moved out of the area. Besides, NATCO buses have resumed their operation from Gilgit city to Mastuj in upper Chitral via the Shandur pass. It may be noted that due to the closure of the road in early June, the annual Shandur festival 2013 was also postponed by the KP government on the request of the Gilgit-Baltistan administration.]]>
