Jammu-Srinagar highway cleared of landslide, traffic resumes
JAMMU, Sep 7: Vehicular traffic on the 300-Km Jammu-Srinagar National Highway was plying smoothly today after authorities cleared the landslide which blocked the arterial road in Ramban area for over five hours yesterday.

Official reports said that the road was thrown open for traffic last evening after it was cleared of big boulders which rolled down the hillock overlooking the highway near Peerah.

He said while light motor vehicles are plying smoothly from both sides, no heavy vehicle was allowed on the highway, including convoys of security forces from Jammu side, due to ongoing widening and repair work at Panthyal.

"Keeping in view the overall condition of the road, allowing the two-way movement of traffic was not feasible. While the light motor vehicles are plying from both sides, heavy vehicles were allowed from Srinagar to Jammu as per the already notified traffic plan, under which heavy vehicles ply alternatively on the highway from either side," the spokesman said.
