Srinagar: Authorities on Thursday shut Jammu-Srinagar highway for second straight day after fresh snowfall and landslides.

Officials said that the continuous snowfall has led to slippery road conditions while landslides have blocked the highway. “Road clearance operation will be started once the weather improves,” they said.

On Wednesday the traffic was allowed to move from Srinagar to Jammu, however, the highway was again closed after landslides in Ramsoo-Ramban area and persistent snowfall in Banihal.
