“Passengers are requested to contact traffic control room before leaving for their destinations,” said a traffic spokesman.

He said the Border Roads Organisation, responsible for the maintenance of the highway, have already put into service sophisticated machines and men to put through the traffic.

However, he said traffic on the highway would be restored only after receiving a green signal from the BRO and traffic police officials posted in the area where landslides had occurred.
