Srinagar: The snow clearance operation has started on this side of Zojila Pass on highway, connecting the Ladakh region with Kashmir valley.
The highway was closed for traffic in December last year due to accumulation of snow and slippery road conditions, after below freezing temperature.
The historic Mughal road, connecting Shopian in south Kashmir with Rajouri and Poonch in Jammu region, also remained closed since December last year.
Snow clearance operation started last week on the 12-km-long Gagangeer-Sonamarg stretch on this side of the Zojilla Pass of 434-km-long Srinagar-Leh highway, officials told UNI.
