Over 8k Accidents, 1750 Deaths on Srinagar-Jammu Highway in Past decade; Experts blame Bad Engineering

Additional Director General of Police (ADGP) J&K Traffic, T Namgyal attributed the highway accidents to the increasing volume of traffic on the highway and the rocky terrain of the road, saying it would take three to four years to “stabilize” the highway.

“Until then authorities can do very little to prevent fatal accidents especially on the treacherous stretch from Banihal to Chanderkote,” the ADGP.
