Tourists relieved as blocked routes cleared in Galiyat

ISLAMABAD: The blocked routes in Galiyat due to heavy snowfall were cleared after a span of four days.

The tourists were stuck in Ayubia, Nathiagali, Donga Gali and Changla for several days following which Punjab Highway came into action and sent modern machinery to the areas on the directions of Punjab Chief Minister Shehbaz Sharif.

The tourists were relieved and took a sigh of relief as they were able to move forward. An unusual number of people paved way towards Galiyat once the closed routes were opened.

A shallow westerly wave is still affecting extreme northern parts of the country. Continental air is prevailing over most plain parts of the country. In the next 24 hours, mainly cold and dry weather is expected in most parts of the country.
