Jammu: After being closed for the past three days due to heavy snowfall and landslides in Ramban district, the Jammu-Srinagar National Highway will reopen for one-way traffic on Saturday.

Traffic Inspector Shri Rakesh Kumar said that one-way traffic from Jammu to Srinagar would be allowed after clearing the debris from landslides at various places.

He said that only light motor vehicles (LMVs) have been allowed for traffic from Jammu to Srinagar from 9 am to 1 pm.

“Strictly no vehicle will be allowed from Nagrota in Jammu before and after time. There will be no traffic from Srinagar to Jammu tomorrow,” the official said.

The only road connecting Kashmir to the rest of the country was closed for traffic on Wednesday afternoon, soon after it was closed for two days between Chandrakot and Ramsu following heavy snowfall and several landslides.

Several truck drivers stranded on the highway for the past several days accused the traffic management officials of not allowing them to proceed, causing huge financial loss to them as the goods they were carrying got damaged.

The 270-km Jammu-Srinagar National Highway was reopened for traffic on Monday after being closed for the past three days due to heavy snowfall and several landslides in Ramban district.
