The traffic authorities on Wednesday said that only stranded vehicles were allowed to move on the Jammu-Srinagar highway to decongest the road.
An official said that all stranded vehicles heading towards Srinagar are being allowed. A decision to allow traffic towards Jammu will be taken only later. Our main aim right now is to completely decongest the highway.
“One-way traffic was scheduled to move normally from Srinagar to Jammu on Wednesday, however, bottlenecks and temporary blockades since Tuesday hindered all vehicles headed for the valley to cross the Jawahar Tunnel on time,” an official said.
