Sgr-Jmu highway reopens for one-way traffic; Leh, Mughal road remain closed


Srinagar:- One-way traffic resumed on Srinagar-Jammu Highway on Saturday after large number of vehicles, stranded since Thursday night due to snowfall, were cleared.

However, the Srinagar-Leh highway and Mughal road, continue to remain closed for the past over a month due to accumulation of heavy snow, a traffic police official.

Traffic was suspended on Srinagar-Jammu Highway, the only all weather road linking the Kashmir valley with the rest of India, on Thursday evening due to fresh snowfall on both sides of the Jawhar tunnel.
