The Jammu- Srinagar Highway has been opened for commuters after 4 days. There was heavy rainfall and landslide in the Kashmir region of India which resulted in the blockage of majority of the highways, including Jammu-Srinagar Highway.
Traffic department officials said there will be one-way movement of vehicles. The highway remained closed due to multiple landslides, shooting stones triggered by incessant rain and inclement weather.
Scores of vehicles carrying essential supplies to the valley remained stranded. All essential supplies to the landlocked valley are routed through the over 300 km-long highway. Meanwhile, the Mughal Road that connects the valley with the Poonch district in Jammu division continues to remain closed for traffic.
