Traffic suspended on Srinagar-Jammu highway due to landslides

Hundreds of vehicles, including those carrying essential commodities and passengers, were stranded on Tuesday as traffic was suspended on Srinagar-Jammu national highway due to fresh landslides.

A traffic police official said there were fresh landslides at Pida on the highway, the only road connecting Kashmir valley with the rest of the country. ”The highway has been closed for vehicular movement as a precautionary measure and traffic will be allowed only after getting a green signal from the ground,” he told.
