The only road connecting the frontier Gurez Valley was closed Saturday following fresh snowfall in the region.
The road was opened by the Border Roads Organisation (BRO) a week ago.
Sub-Divisional Magistrate, Gurez, Mudasir Ahmad told Greater Kashmir that the Gurez-Bandipora road had been closed following fresh snowfall.
Ahmad said that the plains in Gurez Valley also received around 2-3 inches of snowfall but there was no disruption in traffic movement, plying internally.
He said that the higher reaches, which include other passes, had received more snow than recorded in the plains.
Meanwhile, the district authorities also issued an advisory for commuters plying towards Gurez Valley as inclement weather persists.
The authorities have asked the passengers to confirm the road status at district headquarters before heading towards Gurez.<div>
