Closure of Rambagh bridge during late evening hours on Thursday caused immense inconvenience to commuters.
"We were shocked to find the Rambagh bridge closed around 9 pm. We had to take alternative route to reach our destination. Authorities should have notified earlier if they had to close the bridge," the group said.
Commuters said the move of the authorities can be detrimental in case of any emergency. "Rambagh bridge leads to major hospital in Srinagar. In case of emergency, the abrupt closure of the bridge can put lives of patients at risk. We appeal the Deputy Commissioner Srinagar to look into the matter and direct the concerned authorities to keep the bridge open round the clock for vehicular movement," they said.
