SRINAGAR: Vehicular traffic on Srinagar-Jammu national highway was restored after remaining disrupted for several hours on Monday due to fresh landslides, triggered by heavy rain.
One-way Light Motor Vehicle (LMV) traffic was on Monday allowed from Srinagar to Jammu. However, fresh landslides triggered by heavy overnight rain at Samroli forced closure of the highway again.
The National Highway Authority of India (NHAI), responsible for the maintenance and widening of the road, put into service machines and men to clear the landslides. Large number of vehicles had been stranded on both sides at Samroli.
