He said efforts were on the make the nearly 300-km long highway traffic worthy at the earliest and the heavy vehicles, stranded since the road was closed, have been shifted from high risk areas.
The air-traffic at Srinagar International Airport has also not resumed yet because of the bad weather.
No flight operation has yet taken place today, an official at the airport said.
He said while no flight has been cancelled so far today, all the scheduled flights were delayed because of bad weather.
