Fresh snowfall closes Sgr-Jmu highway


The fresh snowfall at Banihal along the Srinagar-Jammu highway has led to the closure of the highway, 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.

An official said that no vehicular movement would be allowed on the highway keeping the safety of travellers in mind.

“The decision regarding allowing the movement of traffic on the highway will be taken only after the road is cleared off by the road maintenance agency concerned and after assessing weather as well as road condition,” the official 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.
