Highway closed; Ramsu, Magarkot plays spoilsport again

KL Report


Srinagar-Jammu-Highway-blockedAfter few hours’ movement late Saturday afternoon, Srinagar-Jammu highway has been closed again due to fresh landslides at two crucial places- Ramsu and Magarkot.

Talking about the frequent closure of highway even after few hours of rain, Chief Engineer Project BEACON R.K.Shrama said, “due to the continuous rainfall that occurred last September, the highway became prone to the landslides and at present the situation is as much serious that even the rains for more than one hour could trigger landslides.”

The news of highway made clear yesterday brought sigh of relief to valley residents as this is only link of valley with external world. The continuous closure of the highway has triggered shortage of supplies, particularly livestock.
