The road has been closed for the past three months due to the accumulation of snow in the winter season after which the J&K Mechanical Engineering Department started snow clearance work that was completed in the last week of March. However, the road restoration was delayed due to landslides that hit the Mughal Road on Thursday near Chatta Pani.
