The Karakoram Highway has been cleared and was now open for all types of traffic, reported 24NewsHD TV channel.

According to a statement issued by the ISPR on Friday, the highway which was blocked at several places due to the landslides was cleared after relentless and sustained efforts by Frontier Works Organisation (FWO).

The recent spell of heavy rains in Gilgit Baltistan since July 20 caused the blockage of the Karakoram Highway with heavy mudflows at more than 20 locations between Tatta Pani and Raikot.

Despite challenging weather and terrain conditions, the ???????????? slide clearance teams kept working round the clock to clear all blocked locations.

After dedicated efforts of FWO teams, all blocked areas have been cleared and the Karakoram Highway was now open for all types of traffic, the ISPR statement added.
