Jammu-Srinagar National Highway reopens, traffic movement resumes

Traffic was restored on Saturday afternoon after remaining suspended due to landslides and shooting stones since Thursday on the 270-km-long Jammu-Srinagar national highway, the only all-weather road connecting Kashmir valley with the rest of the country.

Meanwhile, the 86-km-long Mughal road, seen as an alternative to Srinagar-Jammu highway, and highway, linking Ladakh Union Territory (UT) with Kashmir were through for one-way traffic.

We have allowed traffic on the Srinagar-Jammu highway and vehicles, stranded since Thursday have been allowed to move towards their respective destinations, a traffic police official said this afternoon.
