Srinagar-Jammu highway remains closed for 3rd day

Over 4,000 vehicles, mostly Heavy Motor Vehicles (HMVs), remained stranded due to closure of 270-km-long Srinagar-Jammu National Highway, the only road connecting Kashmir valley with the rest of the country, for the third consecutive day on Wednesday.

The 434-km-long Srinagar-Leh national highway and historic 86-km-long Mughal road remained closed and there is no chance of reopening these roads before April-May following heavy to very snowfall besides slippery conditions.
