Srinagar-Jammu highway shuts for 2nd consecutive day

Srinagar: The Srinagar-Jammu highway remained closed for the second consecutive day Tuesday stranding scores of vehicles and passengers on the over 300 km long road, official sources said.
The highway was likely to be cleared of the debris by the afternoon, sources said, adding that a decision on allowing traffic would be taken only after no further threat of accidents were perceived.
Heavy rains triggered multiple landslides and shooting stones incidents on the stretch in the Ramban district.
They said that the weather has improved today (Tuesday) and clearance operations are in full swing.
Scores of trucks carrying supplies to the valley were stuck on the highway between Jammu and Ramban. (Agencies)
