Only one-way traffic on Mughal road, Leh highway


Only one-way traffic will ply on the historic 86-km-long Mughal road, connecting southern parts of Kashmir with Jammu, and on Srinagar-Leh highway as a precautionary measures following slippery road condition due to sub-zero temperature during morning and evening hours.

However, the 300-km-long Srinagar-Jammu national highway, linking Kashmir valley with the rest of the world, was through for two-way for light vehicular traffic though heavy vehicles will continue to ply from one side only.

Officials said that traffic on Mughal road will ply from Shopian in southern Kashmir to Rajouri and Poonch in Jammu on Wednesday.

“We will allow two-way traffic on the road only after there is improvement in the weather and getting a green signal from the concerned officials,” he added.

The traffic on the Mughal road, which is seen as alternative to the Srinagar-Jammu national highway, was restored yesterday after remaining suspended for five days due to snowfall and slippery road conditions.
