Srinagar-Jammu National Highway Remains Open for Travel

The Srinagar-Jammu National Highway was open for two-way traffic for light, medium and heavy vehicles. However, traffic movement was slow due to single and unpaved road in some areas between Nashri and Banihal tunnels. This was mainly due to the breakdown of 12 heavy vehicles and the presence of a single-lane road with poor surface conditions at various locations on the highway.

Despite these challenges, hundreds of private cars, passenger vehicles and heavy load carriers moved on both sides of the highway during the day. Heavy load carriers including oil and LPG tankers were allowed to pass through Jakhani, Udhampur and cross Ramban-Banihal.

Trucks laden with apples were also on the highway, slowly moving between Nashri and Banihal in Ramban district towards Jammu and other parts of the country. Traffic on the highway was controlled and vehicles were moving in an orderly manner towards their respective destinations in Kashmir and Jammu.

A fresh advisory was issued for the next day, indicating that light motor vehicles would be allowed on both sides of the highway, while movement of heavy vehicles from Qazigund, Kashmir towards Jammu would be subject to road and traffic conditions. People have been advised to confirm road conditions from traffic control units in Jammu, Srinagar and Ramban before traveling on the highway.The Srinagar-Jammu National Highway was open for two-way traffic for light, medium, and heavy vehicles.
