ISLAMABAD: After three days of efforts, the Karakoram Highway has been opened for all kinds of traffic, announced the Inter Services Public Relations (ISPR) in a statement.
The military’s media wing said that the Frontier Works Organisation (FWO) worked tirelessly day and night to open the highway.
“Despite bad weather and difficult conditions, FWO teams worked day and night to open the road for traffic,” said the ISPR.
The ISPR said that the highway got blocked on Tuesday due to the rains in Gilgit Baltistan and was closed at 20 points from Tatta Pani to Raikot.
A large number of tourists and locals had been stranded due to the closure of the Karakoram Highway following landslides in Gilgit-Baltistan.
