12/14/2017 1:57:46 PM

Srinagar, Dec 14 (PTI) The Srinagar-Jammu National Highway was today reopened for traffic, restoring the surface link between the Kashmir Valley and the rest of the country after two days, officials said.

He, however, said only one-way traffic is being allowed to ply on the nearly 300-km highway the only all-weather road-link connecting the valley with the rest of the country.

"After remaining closed for about two days due to landslide at Marog and shooting stones at Panthyal coupled with rain and snowfall, especially in Qazigund-Jawahar Tunnel and Banihal-Jawahar Tunnel sectors, the highway was opened for movement of traffic last night itself after completion of restoration work at Marog by the road maintenance agency.

"The vehicles stranded between Ramban and Banihal were cleared and allowed to proceed towards their respective destinations, he said.

The official advised commuters not to park their vehicles in any landslide vulnerable zone, especially from Jawahar Tunnel to Ramban and Jawahar Tunnel to Lower Munda.

"The said road stretches are vulnerable/slide prone zone and therefore should be kept free from all sorts of traffic to avoid any eventuality, he said.
