Srinagar: The 434-km-long Srinagar-Leh highway in Central Kashmir and the historic Mughal road in southern Kashmir remained closed for the 5th consecutive day on Monday.

Officials said that due to the accumulation of several feet of snow, which has also frozen at several places due to below freezing temperature, the Srinagar-Leh road has become slippery. “Border Roads Organisation (BRO) has already pressed into service sophisticated machines and men on the job to put through the highway.”

They said that the Mughal road has also been closed for vehicular traffic due to accumulation of snow at various places on the road.
