DDC Poonch inspects Mughal Road stretch & preparedness for its opening

POONCH, MAY 04: District Development Commissioner Poonch Yasin M. Choudhary on Thursday conducted an extensive tour of Mughal Road stretch and inspected the ongoing snow clearance and developmental works.
He was accompanied by SDM Surankote Rizwan Asgar, ARTO Poonch Basharat Mehmood, Xen Mughal Road and other concerned officers of technical departments.
During the tour, the DDC enquired about the feasibility of opening of Mughal road for regular traffic movement.
Pertinently, opening of Mughal road on time was high on demand of local people from the past few weeks as it eases the movement of vehicles and significantly reduces the travel time compared to Jammu Srinagar national highway.
However, unusual extension of snowfall this year has delayed the opening of Mughal road as snow clearance process has to start afresh amid fresh snowfall. Deputy Commissioner appreciated the team of engineers for tirelessly working for early restoration of traffic on Mughal road.
He also directed the Xen Mughal road to speed up the work with men and machinery so that it can be made through for traffic soon.
Executive Engineer Mughal road briefed DDC that snow clearance work on Mughal Road was started but it got stalled due to fresh snowfall and bad weather conditions and he assured that they would complete the snow clearance work within 5 to 6 days.
This was the first visit of Deputy Commissioner Poonch Yasin M. Choudhary to Mughal road stretch soon after joining the office few days back.
