Landslides Block Srinagar-Jammu Highway

SRINAGAR:  The traffic on the 270-km Jammu-Srinagar national highway was suspended on Sunday following mudslides and shooting stones at many places.

An official from the traffic department said that the Srinagar-Jammu highway has been closed due to mudslides and shooting stones at many places.

The men and machines are working to clear the highway of the debris and shooting stones, which pose a grave danger to the lives of the people, he said.

On Saturday, the authorities had said that traffic on the highway may remain suspended in view of the heavy rainfall prediction issued by MeT department.

However, the traffic department official had said if the thoroughfare remained open, LMVs (passenger) and private cars shall be allowed from Jammu towards Srinagar “strictly one way”.

Meanwhile, Mughal Road, Srinagar-Sonamarg-Gumri Road and Kishtwar-Sinthan Road were closed for vehicular movement in view of snow accumulation by the Administration.
