Only Stranded Vehicles Moving One-Way On Jammu-Srinagar Highway

Only stranded vehicles were allowed to move on the Jammu-Srinagar highway on Wednesday to decongest the road, a traffic department official said.

Prepare for the greatest experience after eating a nutritious breakfast. You will travel over some of the highest passes in the world on your adventure, and you will be greeted by ever-changing vistas of the desolate landscape. Stop at the café on Khardung-La Pass, the highest all-season motorable road in the world, and take in the scenery; you'll feel as though you're on top of the world. Upon leaving Khardung-la, the terrain changes to a white sand desert as you approach the Nubra Valley, which is home to the Nubra Sand Dunes. Visit the Diskit Monastery, the oldest and biggest monastery in Ladakh, which also contains a sizable Buddha statue, if time permits.

“All stranded vehicles heading towards Srinagar are being allowed. A decision to allow traffic towards Jammu will be taken only later. Our main aim right now is to completely decongest the highway,” the official said.
One-way traffic was scheduled to move normally from Srinagar to Jammu on Wednesday, however, bottlenecks and temporary blockades since Tuesday hindered all vehicles headed for the valley to cross the Jawahar Tunnel on time.
Authorities were trying to ensure that there were no further traffic congestion on the nearly 300-km long road.
The most challenging section this year has been the Ramban-Ramsoo stretch, which is prone to landslides and shooting stones resulting in the frequent blockades.(IANS)
