Vehicles would ply from Srinagar to Jammu on Monday as only one-way traffic continued to ply till further orders on the 270-km-long national highway, the road connecting Kashmir valley with the rest of the country.

The highway, which connects the Union Territory (UT) of Ladakh with Kashmir, remained closed for the past three months due to accumulation of several feet of snow.
