Historic Mughal road still closed, one way traffic on Srinagar-Leh highway

The historic 86-km-long Mughal road, connecting south Kashmir with Jammu remained closed for the 5th day on Tuesday while only one-way traffic will ply on Srinagar-Leh national highway.

However, the 300-km-long Srinagar-Jammu national highway, linking Kashmir valley with the rest of the country was through for traffic though heavy vehicles will continue to ply from one side only.

A traffic police official told UNI that Mughal road from Shopian in South Kashmir to Rajouri and Poonch in Jammu region will remain closed for the 5th day today.We have removed snow from the road which was still slippery due to below freezing temperature, officials said adding to avoid any accident we are not allowing traffic. However, they said if there is improvement in the weather and no further snowfall traffic could be allowed, which is seen as alternative to Srinagar-Jammu national highway. The state government has already taken up the issue of constructing a tunnel to make it all weather road.
