Srinagar: After remained closed three days for traffic movement owing to massive avalanche, the Srinagar- Jammu highway was opened to one way traffic from Jammu to Srinagar on Monday.
The Srinagar-Jammu national highway is the lifeline of Kashmir Valley, as all essential supplies are moved along it, and continued blockade of this crucial road often results in unscrupulous traders resorting to profiteering and black-marketing.
Officials at the S.P Highway confirmed that, “traffic movement from Jammu-Srinagar was opened today after the weather showed improvement. However, no vehicles will be allowed to travel in the opposite direction.”
They told Agence India Press that all the stranded vehicles on the highway were allowed to move towards Srinagar since Monday morning. “Stranded vehicles carrying passengers and essential supplies to the valley have been allowed to move on priority basis on the highway.”
They informed that tonnes of snow were removed from the road by snow clearing machines on the highway. (AIP News)
