Tunnel road reopened after removing snow

Chitral received rain and snowfall on Sunday as well, which local people said was too early in the winter season.

The approach roads on both sides of the Lowari tunnel received about nine inch of snow overnight.

However, the snow was removed by using machinery and traffic was restored in the afternoon.

Station house officer Ashiret Qurban Panah told ChitralToday that the tunnel was closed due to the snow on its both sides but after removing snow the road was reopened.

He said vehicles travelling on the tunnel should use chain as the road was too slippery.

Meanwhile, Chitral town also received snowfall on Sunday morning which continued with intervals throughout the day.

Other parts of Chitral such as Booni, Mastuj and Yarkhun also received rain and snowfall but there was no report about road blockades.-Bashir Hussain Azad
