The city’s intermittent snowfall has drawn a significant influx of visitors, finding it challenging for the local authorities to keep up with the surge.

He stated that the administration and traffic officers were on the site to accommodate tourists.

Tourists are advised to maintain low air pressure in their vehicle’s tyres and prevent parking in the middle of the road to take selfies and photos.

To keep traffic flowing, he advised citizens to respect traffic laws.

He stated that an increased number of traffic wardens were stationed at all significant points under the supervision of inspectors to assist tourists and regulate traffic flow.

He went on to say that the administration and traffic police were working hard to provide tourists with as many amenities as possible.
