Road to Upper Chitral reopened

Traffic to Upper Chitral restored through alternative road

RESHUN: Four days after the river eroded away the Chitral-Mastuj road at Shader in Reshun, traffic to Upper Chitral was restored on Tuesday through an alternative road. 

The alternative road has been arranged on private land at Shader area where the river washed away the road along with over a dozen houses. 

The locals agreed to the request of the district administration to allow traffic through their land for which they would be paid compensation. 

However, the government is yet to announce a rehabilitation plan for the locals affected by the river erosion.
