Traffic on Jammu-Srinagar highway suspended after landslide

RAMBAN/JAMMU: The strategic Jammu-Srinagar national highway was closed for traffic on Saturday after a landslide in Ramban district, a traffic department official said.
The 270-km highway was opened for one-way traffic on Friday night, a day after a landslide in Ramban district left thousands of vehicles stranded. The landslide was triggered during widening of the road at Nihard, two kms from Ramban towards Jammu.
Efforts are underway to restore the highway — the only all-weather road linking Kashmir to the rest of the country, the official said.
"Over 1,200 Jammu-bound stranded vehicles, mostly trucks, were cleared from 8pm on Friday after the road was cleared for one-way traffic but a fresh landslide again forced the closure of the highway this morning,"Read More – Source
