Srinagar: Traffic on the 300-km-long Srinagar-Jammu highway, was resumed Wednesday after remaining suspended for more than 30 hours due to landslides and fresh snowfall.
”We resumed traffic on the highway despite fresh light snowfall at Banihal,” a traffic police official said.
He said hundreds of vehicles, carrying essentials and passengers, left different parts of the Jammu for Kashmir valley at 0600 hrs.
However, no vehicle will be allowed from opposite direction, he said. Meanwhile, hundreds of empty trucks and oil tankers besides trucks carrying fruit, are stranded at Qazigund and other areas on this side of the Jawhar tunnel as traffic will ply from Jammu to Srinagar today.
The highway was closed on February 20 due to landslides triggered by rain at several places, including Digdol, Penthal, Batery Cheshma and Ramsu during the intervening night. (Agencies)
