Fresh snowfall closes Sgr-Jmu highway


The Srinagar-Jammu highway remained closed on Friday for the second consecutive day due to fresh snowfall in the Banihal area of the over 300-kilometre road, traffic police officials said here.

Snowfall in the Banihal sector and landslides in some places of Ramban district in the Jammu region have forced the closure of the Srinagar-Jammu highway, a traffic official added.

“No traffic movement will be allowed on the highway on Friday except for the stranded vehicles and that too, only after the road is cleared,” he said.

“Those intending to undertake the journey are advised to contact the traffic control rooms in Srinagar and Jammu for an update on the highway status,” the official said.
