Srinagar: Hundreds of vehicles, including those carrying essentials, left Jammu Tuesday morning for Srinagar as one-way traffic continued on the 300-km-long highway, which connects Kashmir with the rest of the world.
“We have allowed traffic from Jammu to Kashmir today since only one-way traffic will continue on the highway,” a traffic police official said.
However, he said no vehicle will be allowed from opposite direction.
He said the Border Roads Organisation (BRO), responsible for the maintenance of the highway, was working to make the highway safe for two-way traffic.
Traffic on the highway was disrupted for several hours due to fresh landslides yesterday, when vehicles were to ply from Srinagar to Jammu.
The traffic on the highway has been disrupted frequently due to snowfall and landslides besides slippery road conditions since first heavy snowfall on January 6. (Agencies)
