The Dushanbe-Chanak highway connecting Dushanbe and northern Tajikistan has reportedly reopened for traffic.

The Branch of Innovative Road Solutions (IRS) LTD in Tajikistan, which operates the toll on this highway, says that as long as the highway is open only one way – from Khujand to Dushanbe.

The company reportedly takes efforts to fully resume traffic along the highway.

As it had been reported earlier, the Dushanbe-Chanak highway had been closed for traffic since January 16 due to avalanches.

Heavy snowfall on January 15-16 caused thirteen avalanches that blocked the highway in some places -- from the 48th kilometer to the 73rd kilometer.

Some of the avalanches were from three to 14 meters high and 200 meters wide, according to the IRS Branch press center.    

The Branch of Innovative Road Solutions LTD in Tajikistan is an internationally held and managed company.  Innovative Road Solutions LTD was registered in British Virgin Islands in 2009.  Six toll-collection points (plaza) now operate on the Dushanbe-Chanak highway.
