Srinagar: Srinagar.Jammu highway was partially re-opened for traffic Sunday afternoon.
The nearly 300-km arterial Srinagar-Jammu highway was cleared off the snow and the debris left behind by landslides at few places and those vehicles which were stranded, due to the closure of the only all-weather road-link connecting the Valley with the rest of the country, were allowed to proceed towards Srinagar.
“The stranded vehicles have been allowed to proceed towards Srinagar after the highway was cleared following improvement in the weather,” an official of the Traffic Department said.
He said if the weather permits, traffic would be allowed on the highway tomorrow.
Life was thrown out of gear in Kashmir Valley on Friday due to heavy snowfall which continued at some places yesterday as well. PTI
