One-way traffic allowed on Sgr-Jmu Highway

Srinagar: Only one-way traffic would be allowed on Srinagar-Jammu highway, connecting Kashmir with the rest of the world and traffic will ply from Srinagar to Jammu on Sunday.

Dozens of far flung and remote areas, including those near the Line of Control (LoC) remained close due to heavy snowfall in the Kashmir valley.

Traffic remained suspended on the 86-km-long historic Mughal road while helicopter service wasintroduced to border district of Kargil in Ladakh region, which remained cut off from Kashmir due to closure of Srinagar-Leh highway for winter months.

A traffic police official said that keeping in view the overall condition of the road, especially between Jawahar tunnel and Ramban, coupled with narrow width of the national highway at some places, only one-way traffic is feasible.

Therefore, he said today traffic will ply from Srinagar to Jammu.
