Ghulkin, May 3: A link road between Hussaini and Ghulkin village of Gojal has been complete and opened for light traffic. The two villages had been disconnected due to submergence of the Karakuram Highway.
The link road will facilitate residents of Gojal Valley as well as the business community. The link road is, however, vulnerable to GLOFs originating from a glacier located between Ghulkin and Hussaini. Already a number of Glacial Lake Outburst Floods (GLOFs) have taken place, considerably damaging trees and the land.
