Traffic from Srinagar to Jammu today


One-way traffic will continue on the Jammu-Srinagar highway on Tuesday, the traffic department said.

A department advisory however, said that no vehicle will be allowed to move in from the opposite direction.

He said that the vehicles were being allowed to move from Srinagar to Jammu today.

He said that vehicles stranded on the highway due to a landslide last evening were allowed to move after the road was cleared of the debris.

The highway has remained open for one-way traffic since the last three days.

Landslides in the Banihal-Ramban area at Panthal, Battery Chashma, Gagroo, Anokhi Falls and some other places have resulted in the frequent blockade of the highway during the last one month.

Besides landslides, the nearly 300-km road has been highly slippery due to heavy snowfall.

Blockade of the highway often causes scarcity of essential supplies in the landlocked Kashmir Valley.
