Although excavation work have been completed but the tunnel is opening only for two hours a day to travel from Chitral to down district. Hence due to heavy snowfall both sides of the portal from Dir and Chitral side had blocked as a result the tunnel remained blocked for all type of vehicular traffic for a week.
