Poonch: Mughal road, after reopening last evening for light motor vehicles, was again closed for vehicular movement due to snowfall, officials said on Wednesday.

The historic road, connecting the twin districts of Poonch and Rajouri with Shopian, remained closed for traffic from early Sunday to Tuesday afternoon following snowfall at several places en route including Pir Ki Gali (PKG), Mansar Mohre and Posha.

However, it reopened late in the afternoon yesterday but had to be shut again due to fresh snowfall at PKG, an official said.

Similarly, the traffic officials said that traffic has been suspended on Srinagar-Sonamarg-Gumari (SSG) road after a snowfall in areas around Sonamarg.

Meanwhile, traffic authorities also informed that the Jammu-Srinagar highway was through for traffic.
