The Lo­cal Mil­i­tary Authorities (LMA) have re­ceived in­ter­nal in­struc­tions from the Min­istry of De­fence to keep the Gough Road open.

The mil­i­tary authorities, how­ever, are yet to is­sue an of­fi­cial state­ment about what they are go­ing to do af­ter the new devel­op­ment.

Sources said that the LMA has been given oral in­struc­tions on ex­tend­ing the date for clo­sure of the Gough Road by six months. The LMA is likely to is­sue a state­ment by May 31.

The mil­i­tary authorities had ear­lier an­nounced to close the Gough Road. How­ever, fol­low­ing mul­ti­ple rep­re­sen­ta­tions from the state govern­ment to the Min­istry of De­fence, this has been put off for two years.
