Day-4: Srinagar-Jammu highway continues to remain shut
The Srinagar-Jammu national highway was shut for the fourth consecutive day today due to landslides, even as dry weather prevailed in Kashmir where the mercury settled below the freezing point at most places.
The 270-km highway was closed again due to landslides at Kela Morh area of Ramban. “The Srinagar-Jammu national highway is closed for traffic due to landslides at Kela Morh Ramban,” an official of the Traffic Control Room here said. He said road maintenance agencies are on the job to clear the highway.
“Clearance work is underway. A decision on allowing the movement of traffic on the highway will be taken only after the road is cleared off by the road maintenance agency,” the official said
